Rainy Day

It was so dark all day.  Thick, grey clouds -- thunderheads -- sat sat in the sky just above my condo.  There were periods of intense downpour.  I managed to get a few errands done without getting soaked, but mostly it was a boring day spent indoors.

When my daughter was in high school, she and a friend would play "boredom games." No one was around to play bored or board games with.

I could have done some housework.  There is always a need for dusting.  Instead I wasted time looking at Pinterest and saw a reusable duster for a Swiffer© handle.  Since I had a piece of fleece in my stash of leftover fabric, I dragged out my sewing machine.  I made one for upstairs and one for downstairs.  All ready for when the maid shows up.

  4. Oh, that's a good idea! Those 360 dusters are pricey, and I have lots of left over felt. Pinterest, you say? I have avoided getting hooked on that. Maybe I can find the instructions without getting sucked in.

    1. I saw this on Pinterest a while ago but when I sat don to do it I basically just looked at one of the old dusters and figured it out.
