Minor aberations

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am not the worlds best housewife and housework - hitherto-for known as the dreaded HW - is little done except when I know someone is coming. I would much rather be gardening, dyeing fabric, knitting, crocheting, planning or doing my latest project or blogging even outside walking is better than HW. So when I was reading my latest reading material 
'We are all made of Glue' by Marina Lewycka (a Christmas present which has finally got to the top of my to read pile) I read "I filled up a couple of bin bags with packaging (mostly labelled REDUCED), and the oozing contents of the disgusting fridge." pg 77.

I was reminded that a job I had planned before getting this nasty virus was to clean out my fridge. So I started it this morning just before DH went off on his weekly walk with our local walking group - why is it that he is recovering quickly after just a few days and I am still feeling like a veritable weakling after over two weeks? Anyway I digress again, the job is done and it's only 9am and I'm back to my blog. So I have a nice clean fridge, several jars that can be recycled once I empty them - very useful in my dyeing experiments and rather rough hands from being in water! Now where did I put that hand cream? 

What will I do with the rest of my day? Complete my dyeing records? carry on with the planning for two projects that will be ongoing soon, dye some more yarn which is ready scouring? Crochet? Knit? Tidy up my workroom so I can see the tops ready for a new project? The options are endless!

Sorry for digressing so much but I just had to write this down. Thank you for reading.

Oh Sheila well done for completing the dreaded fridge job.

Make sure you can't use the contents of the jars in any of your dyeing experiments before you dispose of them......

I love your digressions as much as your beautiful work Sheila. So looking forward to seeing what you do with all the hand dyed threads. Off to finish my catch up & see what else you've been doing/making. :0)
