A quote

I just found this quote and I love it!

"I've never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat. "
RebeccaWest, 1913

It pretty much sums up my feelings on the whole feminist thing.

Man is the weather nice here!

I am writing this now so I can look back on this in July and remember that the temperature is not always blazing hot. It is probably in the low 80's out today and the sky is a beautiful clear blue. I have the windows open all over the house and the ceiling fans on. It has been so nice all week that I think I am going to have to go shopping for summer clothes for my son before too long. Although we always seem to have one last cold spell after it starts to warm up, so we'll see. It is so nice out today that I even hung the diapers on the line. I love the sight of my diapers drying on the line. Makes me feel all earthy and environmentally conscious (which I normally an not too great at).

Last week

Well last week was pretty good for me. I decided to write out a schedule of daily chores since I felt that I was not getting anything accomplished and I always felt that I should be doing housework when I was taking some time for myself. I did really well with the schedule, it wasn't a full flylady weekly home blessing, but it was more than I had been doing and I felt good about it. I even managed to work in anti procrastination day on Wednesday. I had not cleaned out under my dryer since we moved into the house three years ago so I pulled the dryer out and cleaned and vacuumed out the duct, although I didn't get much out and I am probably going to have to call in a professional. I also finished the knitted wool soaker that I was working on for my daughter. I am very proud of myself, it turned out great and didn't take as long as I thought it would. I bought the wool for it on January 17th and finished the soaker on February 3rd. I have already started another soaker for her. I have been enjoying using the wool covers for her.
