in the winter i teach wednesday and friday afternoon. so thursday is my "domestic" day - cleaning, groceries etc. for weeks now, every thursday has been sunny. the light streaming into the house is strong. it guides me in my cleaning but also shows me just how dirty the house has got. so - in may when my orders are complete. when i've had a chance to do a good cull. i'm hiring someone to come in and help me clean. the floors. the walls and baseboard. the woodwork and windows the furniture moving. the in-behind and underneath. a good old-fashioned spring clean. a gift to myself.
