Into the PitThursday, May 09, 2013Virginia Bilinski
The weather has finally had a turn for the better. The sun is shining, the tank is clean... err I meant, the grass is green and we are getting out of here (the house). Hubby and I spent the first nice day outside trying to grill hamburgers on the barbecue but were unsuccessful. We have a Traeger and it's a smoker/bbq type thingy and it just wans't getting hot enough. We spent the second day trying to get the bbq to work and fixing the fence so the dog can't escape. Since there is no longer any snow holding those boards down, we figured we better be safer than sorry..er.
This also means that spring cleaning needs to go into effect asap. This has been taking quite up quite a bit of my knitting time, but also seems to be a losing battle. We'll tackle the kitchen and the next day the island will be full again. Same with the coffee table in the living room. I don't know what's wrong with us or this house. It feels like we are in a time loop and whenever we clean something, it's just undone right in front of our eyes. It's madness! I'm going to try really really hard to get the kitchen and bathroom cleaned today and hopefully they stay that way for once.
I have also decided it's finally time to clean out my craft room. We moved into this house about a year ago, right before the wedding. We cleaned the rest of the house like mad since we were going to be having guests over after the wedding and the craft room ended up being the place to dump everything that didn't have a home yet. Fast forward a year, and the craft room is still full of boxes and is still the place to dump the things that don't quite belong anywhere yet. Those things should go to a garage sale, but I don't think we have enough junk to sell off yet and none of my yarn is leaving the house like that no matter how much hubby wants it to.
The craft room clean all started when I was looking for my 2.5mm fixed harmony circular needle. I KNEW I had it and it just wan't in the spot I was looking for it. I looked everywhere...that was accessible, and just couldn't find the damn thing. I finally started going through boxes and in one of them I found this monstrosity.
