My outside job is in an environment where productivity and efficiencies are constantly being measured. Hence, when I am home chaos seems to reign free - it takes so much energy to keep it together at work that my resources are tapped out. So, when I do have the energy to actually complete some bigger tasks I am quite pleased.
Yesterday I washed all the windows in our sun room - you might remember this cause a flurry of bird activity but so far, there have been no attempts to crash through the window.
I cleaned our hardwood stairs - which is to say that I swept them of all the dust in the corners and then wiped them down and I must say they look beautiful.
While I was hanging around the stairs I noticed the handrail was looking slightly grimy so I cleaned that too. And dusted the baseboards.
I made chocolate chip cookies.
And a zillion loads of laundry - ok not a zillion. But, many many loads. Plus, while the sun was shining. I emptied out quite a few pots of flowers who have given their all; their time was over.
Of course, everywhere I look there are still tons of projects to complete. But, rather than focus on what I still have yet to do I am taking delight in what was done.
