Okay, Mom, bring it on! The house has been scrubbed from top to bottom in the annual fall cleaning extravaganza. As per tradition, Gene cleans the kitchen. He volunteered to do it a number of years ago and now, well, it's expected! Of course I get the other 7 rooms and two bathrooms, so don't pity him too much. The mention of bathrooms gets me off on a side note. This house called for two smaller bathrooms upstairs, a master and one to service the other rooms. Now I don't know about anyone else, but walking two steps further down the hall instead of through the master to get to the loo is worth not having yet another bathroom to clean. Instead we have a huge walk in closet. A better use of space as far as I'm concerned. ;-)
Here is Gene on the beginning of his cleaning journey.
And the final product. Ready to turn my soup making Mother out into it!
On farm news....do I have a farm? Oh yes, there are animals out there and they are sorely neglected I might add. With all the cleaning it's been feed runs only. I did get a brush out and give the boys a few swipes each while the water tank was filling. When the grandparents come, everyone will be spoiled with treats and attention.
On weaving all I can say is my looms look quite clean and dusted. Hey Baby is ready to go, BV got a nice gentle vacuuming around the existing rug warp and the Murphy loom is getting a polish up tomorrow. Today is a town day and I have at least 7 stops that I can think of off the top of my head.
And for comic relief I leave you with these shots. Someone decided the roving hanging prepped and ready to spin on the wheel was just too tempting.
Pink mustache anyone?
