autumn cleaning day #3

We’re getting somewhere.

Nice white walls:

Cleaning the crates that will be used for storing yarn supplies:

Iced doughnuts for morning tea:

But the patio is more of a horror show than ever – pic taken 10 mins ago:

There’s a good chance I won’t be doing any crocheting tonight…

    Grab a donut, a hook & some yarn; then hide away with your tea?
    It looks like good progress actually ~ and you have a team of assistants ~ woohoo :)

    Be brave, as you said earlier, it’s nothing you haven’t seen before. But with nice clean white walls and an empty room I sympathise with the urge to keep it all nice and just put a match to the stuff on the patio! Actually, I think you deserve 2 hours with the crochet hook AND a doughnut before you start to tackle that lot… This is where I wish I could come and help. I’m GOOD at organising this stuff…

        Got a nice bottle of kerosene here, if you’d like a swig? For the bonfire, you understand, I’m not suggesting you drink anything less ladylike than a nice muscular Pinot…. By the way, do you have a ball and chain in that heap? Only I need to borrow it to keep me at my quilting station. I’ll do almost anything rather than hand quilt at the moment, whilst at the same time being desperate to get the dratted thing done…

        Why don’t you schedule breaks – helpful commenters on my post have shared this idea! Plan to stitch for 45 mins, then break for 15. But ONLY 15. Then back to stitching….. Right now, I’d swap with you in a heartbeat. Which is why I’m still sitting at my desk.

        I stitch for a bit, then load the dishwasher, stitch for a bit, do the dusting, stitch for a bit, clean the ceiling fan… You get the idea. All sorts of hitherto neglected jobs are suddenly getting lots of attention!

        Well, it’s got large woolly clumps of dust on it… Which normally I’d be able to ignore quite happily, but in my desperation for displacement activity, I couldn’t avoid it. Three more rows to go…
