What do you use to clean cobwebs? I'm at my wit's end (okay, I admit it, it didn't take me too long to come to the end of my wits). I've tried the FlyLady feather duster. It has done a magnificent job inside, but is useless on the rough surfaces of the stucco and the wood around the door. If it DOES manage to pick up a cobweb, you can't get the darn thing to shake off. Next I tried the rubba sweepa. It was pretty useless too. It kind of rolled the cobwebs up in a ball and left them stuck to the stucco. Third weapon: the FlyLady mop, dry. This did the best of anything, but the results are not anything to write home about. My next try is the FlyLady mop, wet. In the past I've used the hose, but that didn't work either. Suggestions, anyone?
Well, I've folded a load of clean clothes. And I've tried to do something with those cobwebs outside. Next, I'm going to wash that entryway floor. And, I haven't taken time to eat yet today so I'd better do that soon. I am thinking I have to leave here a bit earlier than planned, more like 4:30. My tires could stand to have some more air put in them. I did that recently but ran out of quarters to feed the air machine before I got the deed done. Since I try not to drive more than about 3 miles one way, I don't worry too much about it. But, now that we're into hot weather, and I am going to be driving about 25 miles today, and some of those miles will be at high speeds on the freeway, and I am going to have the grandchildren in the car, I think I had better do something about that.........
I washed my hair this morning and ended up blowing it dry with the "bangs" flipped back ala Farrah Fawcett in 1980 something. Then I very carefully sprayed them with a LOT of hairspray. The truth is I need a haircut. But, I am thinking that instead of a layered style, I might go more towards a bob. So, I've kind of been letting it grow for that reason and for budgetary reasons. But I hate the ragged "fringe" at the back where it's longer than on the sides, and the front part, the part I referred to as "bangs" is constantly in my eyes and making me nutso. (Hey, stop with the smart aleck comments. So what if I'm usually nutso? Who gave you the right to say so?)
I need to report that it's only Tuesday and that bathtub did finally drain. It is certainly no great achievement, let me tell you. I've poured two cups of that "organic" drain cleaner in there so far. This morning I dumped about 18 ounces of water into the bathtub. It was draining one small drop at a time. It may have been draining one small drop at a time a bit faster than last night, but that is certainly not enough to get excited about.
I haven't done anything at all on the doggy kit. Hey, there's nothing ADD about me! I have had an idea for a while now for a collection. And, I have just kind of shoved it aside. I want to do a collection of various colors each mixed individually with Black. Blue with black, Hot Pink with black, coral with black, and so on. Today I have done 16 papers with the green and black color scheme. One of the things I LOVE to do is to take a small, tight color scheme like this (I'm using gray, black, white, and green) and see how many ways I can use those limited colors to create different looks. And, of course, I love the high contrast of the one color with the neutrals. After my tirade the other day about recolored papers, I have to admit to you that I have recolored papers in this pack of papers. For example, I have some green dots on black and some black dots on green and like that. I do love positive/negative type designs....... But, a collection like this is the ONLY time I would do the recolor thing and the papers will number at least 20 prints, possibly more, so there will be plenty of unique prints.
For me, it is great fun to see the different looks I can achieve just by artfully mixing the same very limited colors over and over, in different ways, in different patterns. Yes, Virginia, for me, designing is truly all about playing with color. Love it, can't get enough of it.........
Alright, I need to find something fast and edible and then tackle that entryway floor.
