Good morning fellow Mylotters! It is a bright and sunny day here in my place. I heard from the radio that it will be 30°C today. I could feel the hotness of the weather now. I am so sorry if I have not interacted with you these past few days. I was busy working at home. Cleaning the house, washing the clothes and curtains and doing the most unliked household chores that I have which is cleaning our glass windows. I don't like cleaning windows and it is a challenge for me every time I do that. I have been here on Mylot when I was about to go to bed only for half an hour. Well, I am going to work in an hour and maybe I don't have many clients that I can interact with you more than these last few days. Anyway, I hope I have not miss something and that you are all in good health. The photo above is my terrace in my home country Philippines. Take care all of you. Ciao!

Yes @SIMPLYD I can relate to that. When I start being online., it's hard for me to stop. So I made it a habit of drinking tea every hour and every time I do it, I see to it that I accomplished a house work .

You have a very beautiful home in Phillippines I think the most challenging housework for me is cleaning the house. As I need a few days to finish it and it is so tiring.

Thank you @youless. Maybe your house is too big. I only need 2 hours to clean our flat here in Germany. In the Philippines, I have a help to do what I don't like to.

@thelme55 My house is not big but it is messy and I like everything in a good order. This is why I have to spend longer time.

@prashu228 I see. You reminded me of washing the clothes tomorrow in the washing machine. I have bought new clothes and I have to wash them before putting them on.

You have a beautiful terrace. Sounds like what I call spring cleaning. In early spring I usually clean windows and curtains, clean cabinets and put in new lining paper, rearrange pots an pans and generally tear everything apart and put it back together. My better hates to see me cleaning.

I would have to say doing dishes is my most hated chore, though it might be dusting since I do that even less. I need to get busy and get all my house chores done. Very nice picture.

Doing the dishes is the most hated chore we do at home @just4him. I don't like dusting as well because of my dust allergy but I have to do it. I just use a mask.

I hate washing the dishes. It is not the difficulty of the task though, but rather the frequency of the chore. By the way, that terrace just looks so good to spend an afternoon with.

I am with you @Yadah04. It's annoying to wash the dishes 3 times a day. Yes, it is indeed. I usually sit at the terrace when I am there. Watching the birds and butterflies flying around from plant to plant. Thanks.

@thelme55 exactly. Washing 3x a day with all those dishes is just tiresome, like a never ending task. But anyway, it is still great to be able to have a terrace watching butterflies. Stress reliever. Only prob is i do not have a terrace like your but i do have a vegetable garden and i can just sit there all day feeling destressed as well.

Your photo is so beautiful and tropical. I love it! Here, we hire window washers and have a cleaning lady. I just keep up between their visits. I don't like the time it takes to fold laundry, which is a never ending job here.

Thank you @DianneN. I love that, too. I could have asked the woman who cleans the outside floors in the building where we live. All neighbors pay her for doing that. I am sure she would be glad to accept the window cleaning job but you see, I am too stingy to pay for a window cleaning job. Anyway, it is not often.

@thelme55 I would rather pay her to do the floors outside. They are a nuisance to do, especially when it's hot. I do them when we first arrive in Florida, but it is difficult once the furniture is placed on it. Windows are more of a squirt and a wipe. lol

The most challenging household chore for me is cooking. I don't know how can I cook a perfect or even an agreeable meal. Haha! The last time I did that, it turned out to be a disaster.
