I am finished playing with my Roomba for today. The floors are relatively clean but robots are still not as efficient as a human being. Aren’t you glad? We are not dispensable after all. Granted, it is my first day with my little friend so I am not proficient or efficient with it. It is a little time consuming getting acquainted with its parts, learning to operate it and cleaning it. I am liking it even though it left some of Sheba’s hair here and there. We will be better tomorrow.
At long last I am able to sit here, sip my tea and tap out some words. I am pooped! It’s been a long and cold day. It has made walking Sheba an arduous task, fighting the biting wind and trudging on the hard-packed snow. I’m feeling exhausted from hunching my shoulders so much. I will have to hit the swimming pool tomorrow. The warm water helps to relax my neck and shoulder muscles.
Supper is done, the dishes, pots and pans washed and put away. The bread is still cooling on the rack. I have made my usual 6 loaves. No wonder I am tired! Yesterday, I baked 3 dozen cookies and a dozen muffins – late Christmas offerings. I think I’m done with the baking for awhile. It’s the cleaning up that gets me. By next week I will have forgotten about it, and be ready to start all over again. There’s something about a winter’s day, kneading dough and the smell of baking bread. It soothes and nourishes me. It makes me feel content. What works for you?
