A Small Stone NUMBER 3

The cleaning fluid shrieks yellow in the sink as work surfaces are wiped clean and the debris of last night’s supper is cleared away to the sound of Leonard Cohen. 
“First We Take Manhattan.” 
Slowly soft cloths are wrung out and the sink’s contents turn a begrudging lime. 
“Then we take Berlin.”

Nice. Music often helps me tackle the housework. :)

Love the choice of music to match the stages of housework drudgery! Very creative!
