The Grime of Daily Living

Julia’s eye rolling line quoting “Dear Mrs. Ferguson” in the 1963 Haley Mills classic Summer Magic, has been my mantra lately. ” Keep high thoughts and don’t let them get soiled by the grime of daily living.”

I have a great many things I want to be working on. My blog, learning how get better at blogging, writing my book, working on my Stampin’ Up! business. However, the grime of daily living keeps getting in my way. Julia and her line played on repeat as I cleaned my kitchen, again, straightened up and thought of all the “grime” that needed cleaning and doing. It can bog down and soil one’s high thoughts that’s for sure!

I worked on thinking of things to blog about while doing my cleaning today. Thinking it might be a good time to focus, instead, on what I will write about or what I want to learn today. The way some people get book ideas in the shower I’m thinking I need a notebook and pen nearby as I clean the kitchen, dust, make dinner, yet again, and maybe I can write my own Cinderella type masterpiece!

Keep high thoughts and don’t let them get soiled by the grime of daily living…..

  1. What fun! I have two pages of a short story collection that I started many months ago…you may just inspire me to get back on that horse!
