I know that it’s pretty late in the day for a blog. To add to the inconvenience, it’s Friday and everybody’s probably in weekend mode already! The day just got away from me because I had an early appointment followed by back to back engagements that kept me occupied until dinner time. So, I’ll keep it short and sweet.
Allow me to let you in on a little secret that it took me several decades to learn: Nothing bad happens if you neglect your housework. Honest! Just last week, I finally put away the last of my Winter decor. My bin filled with springtime things remains unopened. My hampers are full (again) and I haven’t’ vacuumed in a few days. There’s a box of stuff in the corner of the kitchen, waiting to be taken downstairs. And let’s not even talk about my bureau, other than to say that I haven’t seen the surface in weeks.
Does anyone care? I doubt it. The thing is, I don’t really care (anymore). Why waste time putting little porcelain birds around the house, when I can be outdoors with real ones? And that dust? It will still be there whenever I get around to it. Or even if I don’t.
So, get outdoors this weekend! Call friends and arrange something – anything! Take a walk, find some live music, plant some pansies. And, about that dust? It will still be there on Monday morning. But what do you care? You’ll be back at work! Why not take some good memories along?!
