Serious inquiries only please. Thanks for reading and understanding…

5. Window cleaner
6. Vacuum cleaner
7. Dish washing liquid

Wow! The woodcarving is beyond amazing, isn’t it?
I could not be “on top of the world” – I just couldn’t get up there like that!
And you finished with a laugh! Great links today! Thanks!
I am dying reading that list… and as much as I’d like to help you out. I can find nothing on that list that screams “you need me in your life”!! LMAO
Phil and I can relate with an aversion to putting down a good book only to clean. With the pandemic, lockdown and stay-at-home orders, we have not had company in a year and a half inside the home except for my older sister who was in our bubble. This month I bit the bullet and was fortunate enough to find a helper to hire. Together we put in 40 hours of cleaning, including the basement. Rugs were first vacuumed and then wet-vaccuumed. I even painted a bit of the trim in the bathroom. Decluttering, fridge cleaning and wiping our cupboards was on the list as well as washing the insides of all our windows. It feels really nice in here, and I have hired Douaa to assist me once a week starting in September so it does not all build up. I have a list of things to de-clutter next, and that spice cupboard needs cleaning. I need the commitment of someone else coming to put away the pleasure of reading among other things that I love to do, such as baking and cooking. Those all put on weight, too! But your post had me laughing out loud, and i read it to Phil. he concurs that there are more important things to do than clean (but eventuallly it does need to be done). Thanks for the laugh!
Please don’t share any parts of your collection with me. It will just be that much more for me to divest when I give up my own…
(And NO WAY NO HOW would I have stood on that building. Just thinking about her doing it is making my knees shake!)
Wow! Great links!
You have my sympathy – I had to give up my collection years ago and as I look around, I still see the effects…
I’ll take the scrub brushes. Don’t worry though, they’ll be as neglected – errr, their personal needs will be as respected here as in your own home. I hope they’re in good condition, as everything in my collection is as near to brand new as I can keep them (especially when they’re “put away” in a “safe place”).
And no. I will not climb for an hour to stand on top of a really high building. Just ain’t gonna happen. But hey, the thing with the whiteboards – they could drop in words in any language! But what if she dropped them? I wonder if there were strings attached?
you are a riot! I’d take a11 those c1eaning items. Mine are a1ways breaking…and
that Coming up Short carving is amazing
