It's that time of the year....

It's that time of the year....

I am…

getting later each day.  I even thought about not posting today and then I remembered I am on a streak here,  I think this will be 143 posts in a row.  I will have to check the math on that.

The reason I am late today is because I did something utterly ridiculous like doing some cleaning in the kitchen.  Now I don’t like to clean period but I like a nice tidy house and so I do such mundane things every now and then.   This morning was a ‘then.’

I turned on the iPod hooked up to the Bose speakers and I guess my alphabetically programmed list has worked its way down to I as about half a dozen versions of I’ll  Be Home for Christmas played in a row.  I love Christmas music anytime so I didn’t mind singing along with the music.  My bro from Boston said he was surprised to hear The Rolling Stones playing on my site.  I like them and I love their version of Drift Away.  In fact I like just about anybody’s version of Drift Away.

It was too cold to even hunt garage sales today as it was low 30s with a heavy frost when I got up this morning. It has warmed up to 51 degrees as I am typing this.   The sun is shining brightly though and that is a big plus.

I hurried and did 2 loads of laundry starting at 7AM so I could get that over with.  That combined with my temporary spurt of energy in the kitchen is all I have accomplished  today.  And I do believe that is enough!

Stay safe and be happy!!



  1. I don't like to clean either. But like you, I like things neat and tidy. -sigh- Soooooooooooo......

    I'm envious of your spurt of cleaning energy, though. Me, I got behind on laundry and have been playing-catch-up with that, for a couple of days. So sillllly of me. No reason to let it get behind like that. Duhhhhhhhhhh meeeeeeeeee....


  2. Hi Beth,

    I am generally playing catch up at the moment.

    Hope you have a nice restful Sunday, it is cold here too.

    Hugs Nita

  3. Hi Beth.
    I've learned that when you get the sudden burst of energy, you really need to go with it because who knows when it will be back again. Now you can feel good about your accomplishments.

    1. That is really true. My sudden bursts of energy are few and far between.

  4. I do when the doing hits me, too. ;)
    What a streak you have going! Whew! I'm tired from the A-Z thing in April and I get Sundays off. ;)
    I hope it doesn't get too cold over your way. I heard it is snowing up in the east. Crazy spring.

  5. I have cleaning spurts, also. Less often than I use to when my hubby wasn't retired. Now, he does most of the cleaning while I am at work....NICE!
    I like the Rolling Stones, too, but it surprised me, too. It was a nice surprise. I guess we just like MUSIC, huh?
    If I play my mp3 player in alphabetical order, I have a bunch of songs that are the same by different artists, too. I didn't realize that until it played alphabetically.
    Have a wonderful, restful Sunday!
    And congratulations on having made a post EVERY DAY this year!!! Even when you really didn't feel like posting!
    Leave It To Davis posting anonymously so I can upload to Youtube!

  6. I have a good blast once a week, going round all the edges with anti bacterial spray, a quick spray over the carpet too before I vacuum, as having dogs I'm a bit paranoid of them trailing anything unsavoury on their feet, apart from that it's just routine, of dust and vac a couple of times a week in between, , more of a duty than a love. I haven't got any music players, I have to rely on radio and my CD's
    And well done also for regular posting, I take my hat off to you.Keep well XX

  7. Better late than never. I don't enjoy cleaning either but I hate the alternative more so I clean.

    Have a blessed day.
    Like you I try to post often and do my visit simultaneously.

  8. I have to do A lot of cleaning! BRRRR it is cold there. I hope it warms up soon!
    Blessings, Joanne

  9. We will be hitting high seventies and eighties this week at last and I'm truly pleased with that. Evening are still pretty cool but there's hope on the horizon now. I've been using my random setting on my i-touch lately and then when I'm on my computer doing the same but it's via the collection of everything on the terabyte drive...bliss! Have a wonderful day my friend!

  10. 140 some odd posts in a!!!!!! I have beeen gone for a year. Didn't actually delete my blog,and decided to come back. But I'll never get that consistant. I'm just too lazy,lol!( I love Christmas music anytime,too!

  11. Well done Beth you are a trooper 140 posts wow!!
    Cleaning yes I don't like but as you say it has got to be done.
    I think you have the right idea though, playing your music while you are in full spring with that duster.
    Hugs Sheila and Wile-e xx Gosh it's a cold day here with rain.

  12. You my dear rock with the post. I use to be so good, lately I've been a little blah on it :(.

    I need some of your ambition to get motivated :)

  13. She cooks... she cleans... she has good choice in music... bubbly personality and awesome sense of humor........ you are just the complete package!
    I'll still never know where you get all your energy! :)
