High achiever

I have:

 cleaned the juicer
emptied the dishwasher
cleaned the coffee machine
thawed out the bird bath
changed the sheets
put on a wash
made some toast
emptied the wastepaper basket
folded the laundry
defrosted some mince pies
made some bread
emptied the compost bin
swept the floor
emptied the recycling bin
emailed a bloggy friend
washed my hair
selected some beachcombing photos

written this post.

Marvellous what you can achieve
when you have a tax return to do.

you can put on your Dolly Parton wig
and stride purposefully into the weekend.

Drifting through January in a wispy sort of way.
Somewhat like this cloud.

Waiting for a shaft of light to illuminate
 a big (or even a medium-sized) idea.

Trying not to get too greyed out.
(This picture is in unedited glorious Technicolor.)

Trucking on like these purposeful
shingle shifters.
Their work is never done.
The tides rearrange the banks with untiring dedication.

I'm getting some new glasses.
Maybe that will help to refocus things.

How is January looking from where you are standing?

How felicitous to have been born Gladys
and then to have married a Gladwish.
