the lone hoover


known to most as the "windtunnel deluxe", in our house this fine piece of machinery is fondly referred to as "the lone hoover".  oh, it's not his fault that he's lonely.  he's good looking and quite friendly...it's just that we really have nothing in common.  he's totally focused on cleaning, and, well, i'm not.  admittedly, he's always there when i need him (like when the dust bunnies start carrying picket signs and demand better living conditions).  i really should try to spend more quality time with him...and, today is the perfect opportunity to do just that. hoover has agreed to help me spruce up the house a bit because my little dutch boy has been in japan for the past two weeks and he's coming home tonight!  i wouldn't want him to think that i spent more time playing in my studio than on the housekeeping, would i?! 
have a great weekend!

Hahaha! I know it's time to clean when Marble Man suggests we should have friends over for dinner. (His gentle way of telling me he needs to wipe his feet before going outside!

Happy cleaning...

Housecleaning?! I just make visitors to my home provide proof they're current on their tetanus shot. Haha.
