I watched a show, some time ago, on the CBC (I believe), and the crux of it was that artistic, intelligent, creative people are most likely to live and work in an extremely messy environment. The story went on to say that we, the messy, are the norm. I've been thinking about this for a while, and I am here to say that my house is quite often a flipping nightmare. But.. I can put my hands on almost anything that matters to me; and quite quickly too.
Yes.. I have dust bunnies (or, some might say, dust elephants). The bathroom is a nightmare. There's 10 pounds of potatoes in a 5 pound bag (per se).
When I think of the messiest people in my life, they are (as a rule) the most creative.
I made a few inquiries around the store tonight.. whose house is a pig sty? You'd be shocked how many hands went up. It was a relief to admit it. We're all for one, and one for all! Alike.
So, how about you? Are you neat as a pin, or do you need 2 days notice (minimum) before anyone steps foot in your house?
Knitting? I'm stalled on sleeve 2 of my Ravelympics project, but.. making some really great progress on a sock that I'm designing. It's beautiful I think.
