I also cleared off my desk putting away pens, paper clips, rubber bands, letters, postcards, and random receipts.
Anyway, as summer quickly approaches (it is already 82 degrees and muggy here), I want the surfaces clear. I think it makes the house look cool and shiny.
This little flurry of activity was brought on by the invasion of the Gas Men in my neighborhood. Gas lines are being replaced and for days platoons of fellows in yellow hard hats have been wandering up and down my street and digging holes in my yard. There is a generator humming along in front of my neighbor's house. Every now and then a big backhoe smashes through the street's asphalt. To add to the mix, my plumber has arrived to replace antique lines (which I was told were leaking) in my cellar.
There goes the book budget for the entire year...maybe the decade!
Since there is so much commotion and noise, I thought a spot of straightening might soothe the nerves.
Plus, I do like a tidy home, don't you.
