Oh the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful. Since we’ve no place to go…let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
It hardly ever happens this way. Always it seems, there is some errand to run, some job do, some place to go, but somehow… not today. Let’s make the most of it by going all out- going no place. We can actually take it easy and do nothing for once.
After we vacuum the living room and put away yesterday’s dishes, we’ll do nothing. After we wash the windows and mirrors, we’ll reorganize the pantry and do nothing. No, no, seriously, we’re just going to slow down today. Go no place. Do no things.
After we’ve dusted everything and watered our dying plants, we’ll start a load of laundry and be done with it. Might as well take it easy.
We’ll just fold the couch afgans neatly and prepare to sit down. Because we will sit down- once the living room’s rearranged and our first load of laundry is put away. After we’ve sanitized the kitchen counters and garbage cans, we’ll have some corn for popping (and notice that the microwave needs cleaned too.) Don’t show signs of stopping.
Scrub the shower. Scrub the stove. Scrub the linoleum floors. We’re really going to treat ourselves today. Strip the bed clothes and wash them too.
Go all out. Bust out the Dunkin’ Original Blend and sip it as you clean while it snows, while it snows, while it snows. Around eleven-thirty we’ll be begging for someplace to go.
