What is your blogiste doing instead of writing posts and working on her new book these days? She is frantically trying to make her home a suitable place for the workshop she’s running in it in a few days. That means moving furniture that might get moved and discovering things horrible beyond description. It means sorting out things that ought to have been gotten rid of years ago. It means discovering that the bottom layer of my laundry pile has entered the “composting” stage.
Of all the domestic virtues, the one I lack most deeply is tidiness. This is exacerbated by four kids under 10, the eldest with the developmental characteristics of a toddler, many animals, and nowhere near enough time to keep up with my life.
In the spirit of a new broom sweeping away the old, I am attempting a flirtation with cleanliness. Will it last? Not holding my breath – but maybe long enough for the apprentice weekend ;-).
Posting will be light over the next week, as I dig through the archaeological layers under my sofa and otherwise prepare, and then while people are here! If you are looking for more to read, you could definitely check out Scienceblogs main page and many of my colleagues!
