(and in between reading) the Varieties of Religious Experience today, I have:
*washed several loads of laundry -- I've actually run out of bleach
*washed many items by hand -- esp. the vintage eveningwear from the 1950's and 1960's that's been in the garage for quite a while
*hung to dry three vintage quilts in the sunshine
*cleaned the bathroom
*washed three loads of dishes -- including the crystal that looked a little "greasy"
*polished two silver candlesticks and one silver bowl
*made great inroads to cleaning the Dining Room
*played around with the guitar
*read BBT's "Leaving Church"
*cleaned out the electronics drawer next to the sofa that has all the misc "electronics" stuff
*folded all the clothing and put it up
After all that (and in between all that ) I did indeed manage to read all my assigned readings but I have a conclusion:
William James is very good for the housework motivation factor.
