Scrubbing the slate this morning. On my hands and knees. I LIKE cleaning that has a good result (as opposed to one that does not, like, for instance, trying to vacuum with a plugged up vacuum tube or the nearly useless task of trying to get burnt popcorn off the bottom of a pot). Grime on slate cleans up beautifully. As does the grout. I used an abrasive cleanser, a toothbrush, a bleach pen, an old body brush and elbow grease. The only trick was making sure that Jack didn’t walk through it while I worked.
Inside and outside don’t look that different today. This is the blue stone pad outside our side door this morning.
Next days are crowded… A commission to start. A shop appointment to prepare for. A missing item sold on Etsy to find (oh, St. Anthony, St. Anthony come to me now!). Not to mention the four file folders of applications for various services that I will be sorting through with my sister tomorrow.
So, it is time to get busy and keep myself away from the screen for a bit!
