Dusting not Knitting

I love loft living-------- it's great! The only downside is the open duct work, while very cool and loft-like, those suckers get dusty. Fast. I promised myself on the first (or thereabouts) of every month I would dust the ducts. Even on a monthly basis it is dirty work, stuff flies everywhere and requires a thorough carpet vacuuming immediately afterward. I procrastinate a bit this month because, TA DA, starting today I'm on vacation (as much as I can be) through Sunday at mids. I've been working like crazy to work through a long list of items in order to be in really good shape to kick back and enjoy the fruits a bit.

How better to kick off a vacay:
  • dust the ductwork
  • vacuum the carpet
  • as long as you are already sweaty and dirty;
  • clean the bathrooms
  • dust the furniture
  • give the kitchen a spit and polish
  • use the carpet shampooer to get those couple puppy spots
  • might as well toss in a load of laundry
Do you see how the morning has gone?

On the upside there will be:
  • freshly shampooed hair (refer back to dusting the ducts)
  • an incredibly clean loft (I not only love the look of clean but adore that really clean smell!)
and I've saved the best for last:


I'll be knitting with the girls this evening and I hear that there will be most hands on deck, projects finished, new projects started (mine among them), the new Vogue Knits as well as the new Interweave Knits on hand. Add coffee, beignets (yum) and knitting and I'm in heaven.

Your loft is so cute!!! I can see why you love living there. Knitting with girls tonight sounds like fun. Haven't seen the new IK other than the preview but the recent issue of Vogue is wonderful. Enjoy!

You are so good. You dust every month?!? I figure if something collects that much dust, it is sucking away dust from the air and should just be left alone to do its job.

I love the loft look. Sooo cool. I laughed at dust the ducts. lolol
surely you can come up with some sort of dusting equipment for dusting ducts and make a fortune. lol

Have you tried the swiffer dusters? My mom kept bringing over boxes of them, then I got the hint, dust more before she comes over, ha ha ha. But they don't let the dust fly everywhere. Your loft is very cool. And I love your knitting!
