Thursdays are Work Period, which means we do manual labor around the house as assigned by the Novice Master.

We always end up mopping large swathes of the building. For those who know me, you know whow ironic that is. :)

Today, I took the iPod along and was bee bopping down the hallways, and you know what? I actually enjoyed it.

At one point, I was belting out "Country Roads" and turned around and saw his Manganimous Benevolence the Reverend Novice Master (All Hail!) on the stairway giving me the most curious look. I grinned and he said, "Very naas" (in his characteristic faux Southern way) and went along.

I think I'm getting used to this place.

Heh. :)

You're more than welcome to mop up over at my place. (Grin)

Glad to hear you are slowly finding comfort in Manual Labor Thursdays (MLT). Soon it may become Wednesdays, Fridays, Mondays, Tuesdays and...of course Saturdays. Note that Sundays will still remain rest days.

Glad to see all is well, even if you are mopping to John Denver.

housework should always been done to music.

Susan: a lesson well learned! :)

Dogwood: hmm. Mop the house eh? Does that including mopping under all my stuff that's still in y'all's garage? :) And anyway, mopping to John Denver is better than moping to him I guess :)

Ha.... I can only imagine his face after you said very naas.... Especially if you were just singing (?) (belting more like it) country roads!!!!

@Mattie: He's the one who says "Very Naas!"
