Simon and I spent the entire (and I mean almost five hours!) morning getting the place ready. While Simon blew snow and shovelled and did god knows what else out there, I cleaned. No point really in going into details – I don’t think you want to hear about fishing slimy hair out of sink drains….
So let’s just say that I did the most thorough cleaning I have ever done here. One nice thing about that is now that it’s all done, it certainly feels nice to have a totally spotless home. Even the dogs didn’t escape unscathed – brushed to within an inch of their lives!
We abandoned the house at about 12.45 and while Simon had lunch I took the dogs for a walk on the Carpenter Creek Trail. They were most appreciative. And then back home.
And now I am sitting here feeling immensely proud of the work I did.
By the way – it snowed all morning (hence the vigorous snow blowing) and stopped for about an hour while the realtor was here with his clients. It started again as soon as we got home. Talk about luck! Although I’m not sure if it’s so terribly lucky that the clients saw seven-foot snow banks around the homestead.
My job now is twofold: I need to write another story tomorrow so need an idea. Also, I need to do what I dislike most – get my stories out there to agents and/or publishers.
I shall tackle both items tomorrow. Then a full day at Strawberry Pass on Friday!
