In which I have put up my feet

Next stop, should I make it that far, is the study, with the watercolor project stage for small edition book. But I get ahead of myself. It is possible I have already used my allowance of spoons (energy) for the day.

On the other hand, the living room carpet is nice and clean, although still somewhat damp, instead of being spattered with drops of kitty's sticky medicine and other spots of somewhat food-pellet hues. It looks pretty good for a change, and there is even room on the sofa between book boxes for me to sit with the laptop. I've kind of blocked the doors, which is helping to keep Mr S and his boots out of the area as he arrives home from a Fine Day Out cutting and burning brush and covering himself with dirt and soot. As one does.

The only reason I got this done was that kitty woke up unexpectedly from her nap and went to investigate the Out. I had to whip out the vacuum which makes a horrendous noise she hates, and following the Flylady's advice, just do the middles and not obsess. This still involved moving a dozen pairs of shoes and a couple boxes of books and bags and the entire coffee table (heavily loaded) which slid into the dining room. Then as long as the floor was clear, and kitty was still out, I knew it would take just a few minutes to change the hoover into the carpet cleaner, which I have done many times before, and it really was worth the exertion. I even had a new bottle of carpet shampoo on hand. Then kitty came in and located her box, and then didn't want the sofa feather pillow oh no, had to have all the things piled on her chair removed so she could sleep in her sunny chair. As one does in the afternoon.

Unless one is contemplating putting away the vacuum cleaner and its parts, and finding places for all the stuff that was previously on the floor. And the carpet is still wet. So maybe now that I've had a bit of a sit down I'll try the study after all. Open some windows in there too. Today is nice and sunny, the first open windows of spring. Crocusses full-blown on the south wall, and tulips just coming up.

I know I haven't been posting much, but man, too much has been happening. It's all I can do to process day to day.

That sounds like quite a lot for one day. Maybe you should nap in a sunny chair.

That picture of Kitty, if it is her, looks like a famous picture of Gloria Swanson looking through lace.
