A pretty good day

November 26, 2021


It was a pretty good day – or ‘Thursday’, as it was. Lloyd and I didn’t get out of our pajamas, and I got a bunch of stuff done in the morning. I find that I am pretty productive in the morning, and my energy wanes as the day goes on.

One of the jobs was to edit the stuff on top of the piano. It is a catch all for things and when I notice it, it drives me a little crazy. (I don’t notice it often.) Here’s the before:

Baskets, piles and the horns from Lloyd’s grandma’s cow, Lady Bird. It’s not terrible, but it is certainly a lot of stuff. I took everything down and then even pulled the piano away from the wall. It was sooooooooooooooooo dirty. There’s an air intake vent back there and it was totally clogged with dust and fuzz.

Bleh. Thank goodness I have that amazing vacuum. I put it through its paces. Afterward, Lloyd helped me decide what should go and what should stay.

We’ll see how long this lasts. After that, we cleaned the Tower of Snacks, I defrosted the basement freezer, made a sub-par turkey, and then we ate. I took a sizable nap and checked on Kate’s cat, and that was it.

I never made the pie. There’s always today!

    The before and after of the piano are wonderful. It feels so good to clean a clutter magnet like that. For me, it’s my kitchen table. So… much… junk!
