What I Have Done Today

I piddled around and but-firsted (do not read that wrong or it will sound really dirty) and did this and that and finally cleared a workspace and pulled out the material I bought months ago for a project and looked at it and ripped a bit of it and cut a bit of it and went crazy and ate leftover pizza and then I just started messing around the way I do and got out my beloved old Singer which works like a charm, runs like a sewing machine, and the next thing I knew it was six o'clock.
How did that happen?

Here's one thing I did when I was procrastinating-

I ran all of my Cozumel sea glass and the vase which holds it in the dishwasher! I swear, I'll wash anything in that machine. And now it sparkles, it shines, it's beautiful! 

I will never get over the wonder of my dishwasher. Never, ever, ever. 

And besides that and giving the chickens fresh water, all I've done is sit on my ass and sew and and stand and iron and kneel and rip and cut. 
So it goes. 
It's been completely delightful and I might do the same tomorrow. Although I won't need to run the sea glass through the dishwasher again. 

And in the chicken report- I think the dewormer did the trick. The weird poop has been replaced by normal-looking chicken poop. Good thing I'm not adverse to poop, huh? 

Poop is important. Life is good. 

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. I have never felt a need to have a dishwasher ... until you started reporting on everything else you can clean besides dishes!

  2. Em... I once cleaned my toilet seats in my dishwasher...

    I got the idea from Marge Simpson.

  3. Oh wow, I might have to try the toilet seat thing. Gail

  4. Jenny_o- See below.

    Jo- No way.

    Gail- But you have to use tools to unscrew those bad boys.

  5. Been a long time since I have sat down and sewn.

  6. Yes, I know. I installed one for my Mom once. I'm not sure I want to do all that just to put it in the dishwasher. Gail

  7. Oh my. I definitely read that horribly wrong. There is no emoji for the face I made...kinda surprise, wtf and shit! all combined! whew. Glad your day was just a lot of ass sitting and not the other. Unless that is yo thang. No worries. OK moving on. Bye.

  8. You are one of the most industrious humans I know. I love that you washed your sea glass in the dishwasher. I think I'm going to try that.

  9. Also, Jo's comment made me laugh out loud.

  10. This is a funny conversation tho I was interested in the washing of sea glass wondering if all the little pieces would get lost. But it seems not. I am so tired Ms. Moon and I have to be up early tomorrow again. I need a little vacation. I must just breathe for now.

  11. I love the sparkly glass in the dishwasher idea. But not the toilet seat. I could never eat off my plates again after that.
    Off for a run.

  12. I really like your sea glass. Sparkling like you.

  13. Ellen Abbott- I think it's good for the soul. I really do. But then again, you do creative things with your hands all the time.

    Gail- Just give me some bleach water and a rag. Thanks.

    Angie D- Hahahaha! No. Not my thang.

    Elizabeth- Household tips from Marge Simpson. She is a font of wisdom, that crazy-haired woman! I used a mesh colander to hold the glass in.

    Joanne- See above about the colander. Oh honey- do you have any time-off coming up?

    Mwa- I've heard you can cook salmon in the dishwasher too. Why? As May said, "Cook the salmon in a pan and then wash the pan in the dishwasher."

    Angella- A baby blanket. Of course.

    Syd- I wish I could run MYSELF through the dishwasher. Get rid of some of the grime of the years. You are sweet.

  14. Well, you have not convinced med of the wonder of a dishwasher, never had one, and will probably never get one, but ok, I understand the potential qualities ! but the singer machine, we have just the same one and I have used it for patching all my dear jeans jackets and not least overalls, it is really a machine for good people ! greetings from the small farmhouse in DK Niels

  15. DK Niels- Hello, dear fellow overall-wearer! You will be happy to know that I am wearing overalls as we speak! As to the dishwasher- I have had every dishwashing situation known to mankind. Almost. I have washed my dishes outside because that's where the hand pump was. I have washed dishes by hand in the kitchen. I have gone years and years and years with no dishwasher. In fact, I sort of thought I didn't want one.
    Then I got one.
    I adore it.

  16. ok, I take that ! I see it makes sense! it reminds me of the time when we didn't have washing machine, even at the time when we had small kids, and we washed all our clothes, including wool diapers, and our linen in hand, because our machine crashed and we could not at that time afford a new one, then we made it a "simple living" thing (we were young !), not thinking of millions of people around the globe, who are washing all in hand!, so I like washing machines, and there is not a big difference to a dishwasher, I must admit! so ok :)

  17. DK Niels- Exactly! And I never, ever take any of my machines OR running water for granted. Never.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
