This morning i was able to do my routine fairly smoothly, sneaking in making the guest bed before i headed downstairs. I hung up my 2013 calendar at the office and got to work on boring logs, excel tables and other not very exciting engineering tasks.
After work i helped unload the dishwasher as the Husband and i discussed our days. I watched some of the first season of Downton Abbey as i cut some of the t-shirts from his clothing purge into rags. This weekend some of us are going to watch the second season as a marathon, so i wanted to re-watch the first season. Gosh i hate most of the characters! But watching it does make me appreciate modern technology, and how much formality we’ve dropped in our day to day lives. No worrying about lighting fires to keep warm or cook, no need to polish everything or iron newspapers or any of that.
I’m hoping to use some of the rags to replace the disposable cleaning wipes i use in the morning for the bathroom, although it seems a lot of folks have to do these in small batches or they encounter issues with mildew. I guess we’ll find out when i run out of the latest package of disposables, which, admittedly, will be a while.
The picture is something i saw on Facebook today, and i think it’s truth. The work i’m doing is mostly internal, and is for self, home and family. Not always physically, but spiritually, much of it is within the realm of home.
