Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Domesticity reigns

Today was a day for working through accumulated household jobs:

  • Clean bathroom (not the usual slap-dash, "just enough that I can stand to use it," but thoroughly)
  • Clean kitchen (ditto)
  • Weekly laundry
  • Balance checkbook, and pay bills
  • Clean out and refill bird feeder
  • Dust family room (oil coffee table)
  • Sort and deal with (put away/toss out) accumulated piles & clutter
Even adding a nap-- curling up like a cat in the warmth of an unreasonably gorgeous afternoon-- I made it through the whole list (well, the laundry is still in progress-- but that's normal). Then we capped off the day by cooking dinner as a family (the boy is turning into a respectable young grill master). Nothing adventurous or exciting... just a pleasant day, and a list of various parts of my life and surroundings put "decently and in order." And it's amazing how good that feels.

I did a lot of that today, too. It felt good, didn't it?
