Tree with owls and pots


Just to prove that I am home and playing a bit.
Actually it has been several days of trying to get the house in order, with only two in it I am constantly being amazed at how filthy it gets.
It has rained, it is now cold and wet and of course people will track mud and wet into the house. Sometimes I wonder why I wash the floors.
Any way, after a day of 'deep cleaning'. in other words not flicking a duster around but actually dusting everything in the house I needed a break and this is what came out of my head!
If I only had some cupboards a lot of stuff would go into them. John thinks a garage sale would be more appropriate.
This is a huge, inconvenient house with far too much stuff in it. I have just added a heap of new shells and rocks, what a dill!
Winter rains
mud on floors
a new beginning.

Like the tree penny. Yes we too live in a big house with just the two of us, and yes it does get mud trampled in and things left about. That's life I suppose but like you sometimes I wish for somewhere smaller.

Neat haiku to go with your situation. I hear you on housework...it NEVER FREAKIN ENDS!! I am sick of it. Much rather be outside in garden or playing with grandkids!!!

Hello Penny,
It is so cold that I'm staying indoors mostly, and my youngest son and I did wonders with the computer room, throwing out stuff, but I'm slow as I tend to read old files/stories/poems but I've found some lost things too! I've thrown out about 10% of my stuff and 90% of Peceli's old files while he's away in the sunny South Pacific!
