it feels like months since i've sat and relished the peace of a clean house. today i mostly stayed away from the studio. tom and i ran errands together. we bought our christmas tree and some ornaments. i bought plants because i've been craving the smell of green.
and tonight i hunted down dirt and dust. i washed and moved things and scrubbed and bleached. i vacuumed and rearranged. and put out all the tacky little ornaments that tom loves so dearly from his childhood. they are his memories of christmas and over the years they have become mine as well. it's 1.30 a.m. .... later than i usually stay up. but i had to get this place clean and christmas-y. i will put away the dishes and go to bed.
