Unfunking my habitat

So, thanks to a number of awesome people, I have been following Unfuck your Habitat.

It’s been helping get into small habits: wash the dishes every day(6 days out of 7, really), make the bed every day. The house is never Really Bad but it does tend to accumulate.

Today, I’d taken a short day to work on yard stuff, and then it rained, so I couldn’t work on the yard stuff OR sand the door. So I started working on getting rid of the finger marks on the cabinets & drawers. You know, those saponified (stop it Opera, that’s totally a word) marks around the handles where your fingers move over the wood over and over again?

And then I was down on the floor, and thought, while I’m down here….

So an hour later, 7 cupboard doors, 6 drawer fronts, the dishes, and three rows of tiles are clean, as well as the cats’ food area and the spots under the wire shelving.

I even dusted our water >.>

On Writing, Time, and Giraffe Calls

I have been having a lovely time gardening and working on the house in the last couple weeks.

However, this means that, coupled with being busier at work, I have less time for writing.

Pair this with launching my new webserial this week, and I have Almost No Time for writing (eek).

I have decided that the September and October Giraffe-Bunny-Safari-Calls will be Very Mini Indeed: In lieu of the standard call, I am going to have a 2-hour window (time to be pre-announced) on the normal day (the 15th of September, the 13th of October). In that two-hour period, I will have a livewriting window open and take prompts on a to-be-chosen theme.

Consistent contributors: is there a time during Saturday EST that works well for you?
