This winter is keeping me inside. The weather has been bitterly cold, then mild, snow alternating with rain. It is icy and dangerous to walk without ice grips. I have several kinds of those but each feels like I’m walking on spikes, so I’ve been confined to the house for the most part.
How does one stay busy at home? Books, movies and exercise have filled some time but I’ve even resorted to housework! I am on the verge of uttering the word ‘bored.’
There are few things in life I hate more than housework. I know, I should be grateful I have a house to work at and I am. However I would rather do anything than clean an oven, wash a floor or dust!
Dusting requires the movement of stuff on tables, counters and mantles. I am glad I don’t like many knick-knacks so there isn’t much to move and dust. However, even great Gran’s vase is getting the critical eye these days.
Meanwhile, I am giving serious consideration to the sentiment below as this winter confinement continues.
