Housework can't kill you, but why take the chance - Phyllis Diller
Julianne asked me yesterday how I found the time to tackle a Nearly Insane quilt with so many other projects on the go, and I told her that my time was pretty much my own, which means I can please myself what I do and when I do it.
We have a fairly structured life, I nearly always do my housework on a Wednesday, as that is the day when I have the least amount of time to sit and sew. The Mister helps out by doing the vacuuming and ironing (not that we have a lot of ironing, but it all helps).
I usually pre-plan meals and we are both quite happy to eat the same thing a couple of days in a row, our biggest meal is usually lunch and we usually have a snack around 0530 (crackers and cheese, fresh, raw veges and fruit). Pot-sticker dumplings are my favourite go-to meal when I've been so engrossed in sewing that I've forgotten about getting food ready. In the time it takes to boil a pot of water to steam some vegetables, I can prepare the vegetables, heat the pan for the pot-stickers, then cook the vegetables and the pot-stickers and be eating in 10 minutes.
Here are two quotes that I have always liked:
There was no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse - Quentin Crisp, The Naked Civil Servant, 1968
My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance - Erma Bombeck
