A Little Helper
No, she's not really all that helpful, but when you're standing there with your hands in yet another pile of soapy dishes and she independently scoots a chair over so she can get her hands in it too, you just smile and make room at the sink.
Today I determined to attack the pile of mending/alterations that had been growing in my closet. After sewing on a couple buttons I found two blouses that just needed to be ironed. Well, they were sure waiting in the wrong pile! Then I pulled out a couple more projects and made the happy discovery that the bottom half of the bag was full of the leftovers of a project long finished. Fixing and altering still took all afternoon, but it was much more manageable than I first thought!
