Musings from the Laundromat: A Full Heart and Fridge edition

It was so lovely and quiet here this morning – and my laundry lady is back!

Then other patrons started filing in. Now there’s a hum and buzz and a chatter.

I did at least have a few moments alone with my laundry lady – able to ask about her health and tell her I had missed her.    She said in her absence, (she’d been filling in for other people due to a shortage in staff) that she had told the people working her usual Sunday to be sure to have coffee made for me.

How sweet is that?

Yesterday I was extremely busy.  Ended up going to bed at 8 p.m. on a Saturday night exhausted.  The only thing I didn’t get accomplished?  My room and bath of course.

The rest of the house is spotless and the fridge is full.


I actually teared up at one point.  I had put all the groceries away and in between cleaning, I was also cooking.


Then it dawned on me.

Where am I going to fit these finished dishes???

And it was such a “1st world problem” and such a wonderful puzzle – because I knew with my whole heart what that meant.


I had a bounty.  I was blessed with amazing food and a home in which to cook it.  I didn’t even mind cleaning.  Because that meant I had a shelter.

This morning I sure am feeling the labor of yesterday though.  Tired and aching.  In a good way.

When I’m finished here – I’ll be going home to pack.  I’m house sitting today and tonight, which means my bedroom and bath won’t get done again, but I will get some time with my parent’s cats and of course, the pup Meesha.

Guess that also means I won’t be attending the Oscars 😉  I’ll just leave my ball gown on the hanger and send my apologies to the academy.

Happy Sunday everyone!  Hope your fridges are full and your hearts are peaceful.
