The Cross House
Today, I arrived at the Cross House…
…and had no idea of what to do.
Well, this never happens.
Each day, I arrive with plans for X, but now that I have finished the NE corner I was not sure of what to do next. The scaffolding is set up to do one edge of the east facade, yes, but I actually think I should start instead on the south facade.
Thus flummoxed by indecision, I wandered around the house looking for something to do while my little mind percolated on the ideal What Next.
While wandering and percolating, I was listening to my latest fix: PODCASTS! A few weeks ago I signed up to receive podcasts from the Joy Reid show (LOVE Joy!) and Chris Hayes and Ari Melber and Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell. These are all MSNBC shows and I love listening to these highly intelligent and articulate hosts detail what is going on out there, politically.
My wandering concluded in the basement, as I stood suddenly transfixed by the workroom. Dominating the room (under the dining room) is a 4-foot-wide by 16-foot-long worktable. Yea, pretty fabulous! But this huge table was a friggin’ mess. Which is really not like me. The table had, somehow, over the years become a repository of stuff and very little of its surface could be used as a worktable.
However, with MSNBC in my ears, I suddenly had a focus: CLEAN THE DAMN TABLE.
