it's 9:00 p.m. in the holy city of zefat. i am still drinking the same cup of coffee that i made about eight hours ago. who knows what's in it by now. a little soap, or windex perhaps? i didn't want to leave you with the idea that zelda is a slacker so i decided to let you know what i've been up to this afternoon.
after i finished the blog, i put away all the purim costumes and props that were on the bed in the computer room. i rearranged the closet and make it more organized for future plays or purim. i even made a list of all the props and costumes that were not returned to me after the purim show. after pesach, i will try to track them down.
after i rearranged the closet, i took out all the chatchkas and cutglass from the living room and washed them all. i then cleaned all the pictures and furniture. i washed the black leather couch and covered it with one of the couch covers that i bought last week. it's a a bit chintzy but i didn't go for the big bucks this time. it was $45 for three pieces. i want to cover my t.v.couch with the smaller one and hopefully, the last piece will fit on the big ripped black chair in the t.v. room.
i took out my mini steam machine and steamed all the couches and chairs. they're all pretty ancient, but i think they're a bit fresher now. i couldn't be bothered going upstairs to drag down the vacuum cleaner. i washed around the window sills and wiped down the screens. i couldn't lift out the windows, so i simply wiped them down. i opened the windows to air out the room. i'd like to start hanging out in the living room again, now that the weather is getting warmer.
the gas company delivered the gas balloon today instead of tomorrow, so i was able to ask my neighbor to schlepp the full balloon downstairs for me. apparently, i need to have a gas inspection and put the balloon outside of my storage area according to the new law. this way, i avoided the inspection and the cost of installation. am i smart or what! i am really blessed to have nice neighbors.
so you see, i haven't been idle all day long. i think i broke my toe today. i banged the same toe twice, while i was steaming the couch. it really hurts right now, and i'm too tired to pull off my sock and see the damage. i am heating up the rest of the kasha and brown rice from shabbat and some turkey meat. the kids don't want any part of it. i guess i'll share it with the dogs. and then i'll call it a night.
