I thought those of us in frozen landscapes could use a little encouragement.
We are stuck in a dreary cycle. The temperatures have been mild but damp. We have rain in the forecast for tomorrow. This is a bad thing in Minnesota, for it will freeze. Some may remember the awful winter I had last year because of ice. My poor horses suffered terribly.
I have been running several projects at once, which leads to havoc in the house. I'm not entirely done with the painting projects but my right shoulder has been unhappy; an unhappy shoulder does not allow for comfortable painting! So I have the finishing on hold but have done a lot of de-cluttering.
I have wrapped and boxed lots of items that had graced my living area. I realized I had not changed much of anything for the entire time we have lived here. So I swept the place clean. It was a good thing to do.
My office is a disgrace. I should be ashamed, but I'm more horrified. Somehow my blinders have been working overtime, allowing me to ignore the dust and clutter in total contentment. Once started, the enormity of the mess has come home to roost. How can I live like this? It seems, fairly easily.
Still no membership application from the saddle club. I'm going to begin to take it personally. Or realize someone may have a life and sending me an application isn't high on the list of priorities. I'd rather self aggrandize and think it's me!
If you see a swirl of dust on the horizon you will know I got back to work in my office. Take cover, save yourself. I think it's toxic.
