Part of why I'm productive is simple. I was born this way - it's got nothing to do with me. I get it from my grandma. The other part is because of The Great Declutter of 2016. Doing that, increased my productivity and creativity by a gazillion percent.
A gazillion percent. Not a typo.

Now ... onto Friday Question (one day late). FQ:
What's the chore you wish you never had to do? For me, it's dishes. If I never did another dish in all my life, I'd love it.
FQ Bonus Round
: Name this messy kitchen and win three stale Halloween Oreo Cookies, two hairy pickles and one bean bag chair (beans not included).
I hate ironing, but, ironically, I love doing the washing up. I find scrubbing dishes etc very zen. An oasis of calm in my day. But then I'm a bit odd ;)ReplyDelete
I get that. I enjoy most chores for that same reason but dish takes too long, given how much I bake and cook. So it's on my, I HATE LIST! Thanks for stopping in today, Flea.Delete
That would be the kitchen of Alice Kramden's kitchen.ReplyDelete
That is what happens when you break your chain of thought to look up how to spell "Kramden" and finish your sentence without smoothing it back over. :)Delete
It's the kitchen from the Honeymooners.ReplyDelete
Dishes is a close second. Mow the lawn is first.
Lawn first? Wow, wow. See, just goes to show how different folks can be as lawn is in my top loves to do during mowing season. Thanks for playing, Alex.Delete
I hate wrapping gifts!ReplyDelete
That's a new one on me. I tell you, I'd be happy to wrap your gifts if you want to do my dish. No? No good? lol.Delete
I dislike scrubbing the bathroom. And all housework generally. That's why I hire a cleaner. It's worth EVERY PENNY.ReplyDelete
I get that being worth EVERY PENNY, if it's something you don't fancy. Thanks, Debra.Delete
Emptying the toilet!ReplyDelete
Emptying? Isn't that done just by flushing?Delete
Thanks, guys! That's can be an un-fun one for sure.Delete
Portable toilet in a caravan!Delete
Yeppers. Un-fun for sure.Delete
Easy, peasy, it's Lucy's kitchen! I hate vacuuming, hubby does it and the dishwasher washes the dishes. Cold, windy day here today with 8" snow so far... Take careReplyDelete
I'm excited to get a dishwasher. Thanks, Pam. Wow, wow, on your snow. Dang!Delete
is that Lucy's ktichen? I hate ironing in fact I don't do it.ReplyDelete
Ironing, good one. Yeah, I don't iron either. I don't hate it, but I don't see the point. The wrinkles unwrinkle enough for me with body heat. Thanks, Christine.Delete
Ironing. Gift wrapping. The dishes are (mostly) ok.ReplyDelete
Second one for ironing and gift wrapping today. Thanks, Sue!Delete
I dislike dusting, there just isn't any way to get it done quicker without giving away all the furniture. I can't name that kitchen, but it doesn't look messy to me, it looks like a baking job is in progress.ReplyDelete
Hi River! Dusting, that's a good one!Delete
Second for dusting. Thanks, Dora!Delete
Basically I hate housework of any kind. I had a dishwasher when we lived in NC and really miss it. Cooking, on the other hand, is something I enjoy.ReplyDelete
Cooking is so fun, agreed. Dishwasher, dishwasher, can't wait to get one. Thanks for playing, Jo!Delete
I was thinking Lucy's kitchen, too, but I could be wrong.ReplyDelete
As for the chore I dislike: COOKING!
Yes, I can hear you GASPING all the way over here! :D
Whatttt? You? Not like cooking? Lol. I did know that about you and I get it. I do. Thanks for playing, Stacy!Delete
I've got no idea what that locale is!ReplyDelete
Hi William. Thanks for stopping in today.Delete
Dusting. Hate dusting. Oh, and scrubbing bathtubs - awkward, hard on the knees, thankless. Don't know whose kitchen it is, but it looks "homey" to me. -JennReplyDelete
Hey Jenn! You're the third one for dusting. Looks like that one's in the lead.Delete
Hard on the knees, Tim has that too for stuff. Not so fun.
Thanks for playing.
That's MY kitchen!! lolReplyDelete
No, it looks like Lucy coming in the door at the left there, but other than that I have no idea.
I don't like housework of any kind, but washing dishes is the worst because it hurts my back to stand for that long. We bought a dishwasher for Christmas several years ago and it saved my back and our sanity - ha ha
Vacuuming/sweeping/mopping is a close second, again because it aggravates a lower back problem. I try to do one or two rooms at a time, and I don't really do as good a job or as often as I should.
Please keep your hairy pickles, BTW :D
Having a hurting back is no joke and that makes sense that anything that does hurt, would not be enjoyable.Delete
You cracked me up when you wrote, please keep your hairy pickles. I read that to Tim, so funny.
Thanks for playing, Jenny!
That's the kitchen from I Love Lucy, right?ReplyDelete
I don't know which chore I don't like to do? I'm pretty easy going! LOL! It's when someone asks me to do something, when I had other things planned, I don't like!
Sounds like you're easy going with chores but not so easy going when someone asks you to do something when you have other things planned. Hey, I get that. We all have something that makes us nuts. Thanks for stopping in and boogie boogie.Delete
Do you know I really don't mind ironing, or dusting … not too keen on vacuuming though (thank goodness Eddie doesn't mind doing it LOL!)ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
