Each May for the past 20 years, give or take,  the hubs’ fishing buddy arrives for two days of fishing and male bonding for them, and blissful peace and quiet for me.


My home office/studio doubles as the guest room so there’s a major cleanup before said fishing buddy arrives.


This involves dusting the bookshelves that run along two walls. An annual cleanup is sufficient as there’s not much dust up there.


When a significant chance of rain moved the trip up by two days, less than a day was left for clean up. No, I do not work ahead on housekeeping.

Alas, the bookshelves did not get dusted. Oh darn. . .
