A Little Break Here

I am doing some vacuuming and mopping the kitchen floor and the hall. So I am getting tired already and decided to take a short break here before I go on. It is so cold today and although our furnace is at 23 , I am still cold even with doing the vacuum. My hands are blue thanks to the Raynaud's Syndrome and I have to constantly reheat my heating pad in the microwave so I can warm them up. A nuisance to say the least. Are you doing any cleaning today or just relaxing?

@marlina Yes, I agree relaxing is great! I seldom do it too often. I often feel stressed out.

I don't think it needs a lot of focusing to be just lazy.

Nope, no house hold chore here. Were just waiting for the Fire works to run out so we could go to sleep.

We're at a condo in Myrtle Beach, SC, so I'm just chillin'. But in a much warmer place than so many myLotters around the world. Stay safe and warm as you can.

Yes, I did. I had my apartment cleaned by the stroke of midnight. It was a pleasure to wake up on New Year's Day and not have any cleaning to do.

I always clean and vacuum every morning which takes about an hour, and that plan works out pretty well for me. It is really cold here too, but your area is probably a lot colder.

@marlina Well, my husband and Molly are gone for about an hour and a half at the dog park, so it is the perfect time to clean in the morning. When both return, I am free.

@Corbin5 It is true that it is easier to clean when no one else is around.

Yes, it is a bit cool. I went to my place of worship this morning, came home, and haven't done much except eat and typing on myLot.

I've been busy in the kitchen also, but instead of cleaning it I was using it. I baked a batch of cranberry-muffins and made a bath of broccoli-cauliflower soup. The soup is to warm me on my lunch break next week when I go back to work. Now I'm relaxing, soon I'll take a little 20 minute nap so that I'm ready and raring to go out for supper in a few hours.

The little nap should help you a lot. Enjoy the supper later on.

@marlina Thanks, we're both really looking forward to supper. We've been going to the same place for years, but now that we've moved here to London, that place is way back in Chatham. So we found a nice little place up here a few blocks from where we live. Enjoy the rest of your day, the next time you stop to warm your hands, pack it in and pick it up another day.
