Cleaning up

Our intrepid Dawg goes into the swampy end of the pond to retrieve a plastic bottle, thus taking the lead on the big clean-up at the Mexican Chalet.
I have been so "distracted" by all the construction, gardening and outdoorsiness around here, not to mention shopping, that I have let the house go to the dogs um, get messy. Mountains of laundry, dirty dishes, doggie toys everywhere, and piles of wrappers, mail, and beer bottles are cluttering up the path to the bathroom.
Something has to be done about it and my working men are not up to the task, so it falls to me to tackle it.
 I kept thinking I would be working on something in the studio and actually did drag out the fabric one day and spent nearly all afternoon figuring out what I might make, but alas, it has gone stale on me and I fear I will abandon it.
If only it would rain again, I might not feel that I am missing out on something by cleaning up inside.
