The Humor of Housework
If there is anything I dislike it's housework. Don't get me wrong, I love to cook, bake, I even do my own canning, all the basics for survival.
Somehow I've just never developed a fondness for domestic duties. With all of the high tech gadgets out there why hasn't someone invented a houseworker.
You know, one that sweeps, dusts, does the dishes (yes, even a dishwasher has to be loaded and unloaded), laundry, the list is endless. Thank goodness I live in a region with a winter season; that's 4 months I can ignore the windows!
In the milder weather I can escape to my garden to putter amongst the flowers. Or meander to the front porch indulging in some sewing I enjoy.
Housework cuts into my blogging time, creativity (although I guess I could daydream ideas while I'm scrubbing the toilet) and other things I would rather be doing.
Well now that I've spoken my mind, I must go. I have a date with the vacuum cleaner!
Please note any of you who employ a maid, disregard the above post.
