It's May Day and I still haven't started the January Cure.
I hope I can get my "Spring Cleaning In 20 Minutes A Day" accomplished before winter.
Today I am doing a window. *ONE* window and have already been at it for an hour. I live in a very old house with the original windows. They are hard to get open and hard to clean.
Being sick is bad for your health, in more ways than one. When you have to force yourself to do even the minimal tasks like washing dishes and laundry it's easy to leave things for later. Who knew later would be 3 years in the future.
I feel like Pheonix Rising from the dust of my house. This is the second window I cleaned in as many weeks. This time I was smart though. I set the Charge2 to workout mode so all that up and down, pounding and screwing and puttying and elbow grease counted for 315 calories burned. It is nice to have that tangible number, (although in my mind it should be twice that).
May 2, Miss Queen let me sleep until 5 this morning before kneading my belly to let me know it was time for her breakfast. I love when she gives me that extra hour. I usually wake up singing a song of Praise to The Lord. This morning I was singing *You Are My Sunshine*.
Because... I have a clean window, which will become my breakfast nook. (who cares that it's in the living room)? It looks out onto my front porch, which will also soon be clean, with pretty plants and things.
Looking at that window gives me great satisfaction. You see, for me, that window was a can't, but I canned it. I hated that window. The wood where the left rod bracket was nailed was deteriorated to the point of disintegration. The curtain hung crookedly and looked... sad. It made me sad to look at it, because, I thought... I couldn't fix it.
I could! I did! I turned my can't into a can! You can too!
Speaking of Miss Queenie, it amazes me the number of my Spark Friends who genuinely care about me and my rescued cat. Thanks to all who have asked how we are doing. I promise an update is soon to come.
