This Old House


When one is procrastinating from editing, the best thing to do is something else that one tends to avoid: CLEAN! And the great thing about living in an old ass house is that there is ALWAYS lots to clean!

Kitteh helps with the cleaning prep. I gonna warm up da bucket for you. See how much better cleaning is already? I see you giggle!

Can you see the difference? Yeah, I thought not. But it would not be the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Room if it was not CREEPY!!!!! Right Molly?!?

I am also in the process of slowly trying to winterize my old house. I never anticipated winter with such dread until it became MY JOB to make this house a fortress of WARM. So I am caulk gunning, caulk roping and cellophaning up the windows, preparing the gardens, turning off the hose water and crossing my fingers that the chimney does not fall over until spring when a mason might have time to come and deal with it.

Winter, you are a stern mistress. Please be kind to my dear old, tattered home.

Yes, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre room must remain creepy. Don't make me start a petition!

I think a cat in a bucket is scarier than a TCM room.
