Out Of Order

“Wipe, wash away the evil. Leave a pure, sparkling space.”

Today is another glorious day, as pretty and bright as yesterday. I went out to the deck to chase the spawn away from the feeder and stayed a while taking in the sun and the warmth. Henry joined me. We played his game for a few minutes. He comes up one set of deck stairs, I pretend to chase him and he goes down the other stairs. Repeat.

When I was on the deck, I noticed the herbs in the deck boxes are coming to life. I saw oregano, basil and the tops of mint. Spring is here just about everywhere.

Yesterday I was possessed, possibly hexed. First, I finally took down the outside Christmas lights and the giant ornaments on the side tree. I wound the first set of lights on the spindle which came with the lights. Easy job. I then tackled the second set. I swore more times than I care to admit. I got both ends unwound but the middle was a jumbled mess. I was reminded of all the sets of Christmas tree lights my father cursed about when I was a kid. Every one of them was always tangled when the lights came out the next year. I sat on the stairs and worked on that set for over an hour. I was sweaty when I finally gave up and wound the mess around the spindle. I’ve moved this task to a future to-do list a long way off.

I ordered my mid-month groceries. They arrived in the early evening. I hauled them to the kitchen and put them away which entailed trying to find freezer space. I helped the cause by eating a drumstick ice cream cone.

Next, I moved heavy empty clay pots to the deck and rearranged a dining room shelf. I washed a tea set I found in a wooden box under the hutch. I don’t even remember it. The set is for a child. It is Limoge and is covered in tiny pink flowers. The whole set is intact. It is also clean.

My landline kept losing the dial tone. I checked and found a cord in the back with a wire which had frayed a bit. I have a similar phone upstairs. I bent down and reached under the bed to the power cord, but I couldn’t reach it. I got to my knees and finally found the end of the phone cord. Getting up from my knees was a project of its own.

Finally, I cleared below the cellar stairs. I had been throwing dirty towels and even dirty clothes down the stairs. There was a pile. I put everything into the washing machine.

This morning I woke up with the worst backache I have had in months. I moaned so loudly I scared Henry and Jack. Both of them sat without moving and watched me with wide eyes.

Today is a sloth day. I choose to do nothing because yesterday I did everything, far more than I usually do in a week or even a month. I hated it.
