07:00 pm - Housekeeping
This has been a day where not much has been accomplished, but some needed housekeeping has been done.

Part of the challenge today has been Master Danger's insistence on telling me that next door there was hammering going on. (The Bad Neighbors moved out Dec 31, and there have been workers trying to restore the wrecked house ever since.) One might think that the hammering itself, a shuddering rhythm that reached inside our house, would be enough, but Master Danger barked every time a hammer-blow fell. It was a piercing bark, strong enough to echo against the hard surfaces of walls and floors, and it kept going. And going. And going.

He is VERY PIERCING.

But laundry's been done, deep dusting has been done, and sweeping has been done. (Master Danger tried to bite the broom. He's had a hard day.) I have one row of drawers yet to clear out, and then I can lie on the floor and feel wearily pleased.

Oh wait, thunder's coming. Perhaps I should take Master Danger out for his evening break --

Thunder's here. And Master Danger is barking to tell me so. ;)

Before I leave, then, a quick thank you to Blue Swan for setting up a Goodreads entry for Traveller and Wish-Queen and for ALH for leaving an Amazon review. Thank you both! By the way, the book's up at Barnes and Noble now as well as at Amazon and Smashwords. :)

Bark. Bark. Thunder. Bark. Sigh.

May your house be slightly less loud than mine is, and may your spaces be arranged as you need. :)

They're still hammering, but poor Master Danger is only barking fitfully today. He's over it. :)

Hugs and happy "His Last Vow" day! :)

I need to start my laundry. I should do that instead of playing on the computer :)

Oh, my, the young master is so demanding--how, um, sweet of him to alert you to every noise that might mean something!

:hugs:

at least he doesn't bark at night. Right?

Hugs for today, and for tomorrow!

I'm sure he considers himself a most helpful dog.

With luck, things have quieted down?

Our exciting rain and fog on Saturday was a mere drop in the bucket compared to what we need (why yes, the governor will be declaring DROUGHT shortly)but it was a lovely day to stay home and knit with the house guests.

We are back to crisp sunshine, pretty but not helpful.

(P.S. It was really fun to be the first to review Traveller and Wish-Queen on Amazon!)

It's not really quieter, but we persevere. :)

I'm sorry you didn't get more rain. I wish for a Pineapple Express to sweep in for you guys!

{hugs and thanks again]
