Washing Dishes...

This is what I feel like when I come home and look at the sink full of dishes. (and the rest of the mess)  I have an uncanny ability to ignore housework until it gets quite out of control.  It's the art I'd rather be doing, the board games with the kids, sitting by the fire, chatting with the 'man of information' (husband) and of course, playing my guitar. 
Now, these are clean dishes in a simple kitchen.  Whoever lives here tends to their chores.  Maybe this is my new years resolution.  Don't know if it will keep.

BTW, these simple and beautiful photographs are by the incomparable Dorothea Lange... American Photographer.  I love her stark style and subject matter.  It always makes me thankful and reminds me I have everything I could ever want or need .

yes, dorothea lange's work is amazing. i've saw an exhibit of her work a number of years ago and it was raw and beautiful. i unfortunately have the opposite problem of needing things too tidy which sometimes keeps me from getting to the good stuff. maybe this is my new year's resolution ?!?!

I hear you there! I seem to go on spurts of cleaning then spurts of 'forget it- I have a project!' If only there was enough time and energy for it all, all of the time!
