Lazy Stick

Lately Dan has expressed concern over my climbing ladders and such. One day he was obviously really annoyed when he came home to find I had been painting on the high side of the house. I asked why he was so upset. He explained it worried him that I might fall when I was alone. I resisted speaking the thought that came to mind. “Is it okay to fall when I am not alone?”

I will have to admit my balance does leave something to be desired. I am prone to vertigo. My eyes are and always have been a big problem. On the outside chance he might be right in his concern I bought a lazy stick this week.

One of my most challenging chores inside the house is cleaning the ceiling fans. The playhouse also has a lot of high windows with hard to reach sills. I tried out the stick yesterday. Judging by the dirt that stuck, it wasn’t a minute too soon.

In some places it seemed to be more trouble than it was worth. Minus the climbing on ladders and the like that is . Over all I think it will work out fine once I get the hang of it.

What is this lazy stick? It actually is one of those dusting contraptions that advertisers claim make any chore seem like a breeze. Don’t they all? Maybe I will call it a stick of convenience. Better yet, a safety stick? That sounds better doesn’t it? Now--about those floors. Maybe a roomba?

Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience....Colossians 3:12

Ooooohhhhh, I like that idea! Since I am alone now, that sounds like a terribly good idea. I know my siblings will be happy to hear I might finally listen to reason! Ha!Ha! Love that cat!!!! LOL!!!
