Things pile up

How do things get so backed up? This week I've been inspired by the sunshine and I've tackled a bunch of big jobs: close to "detailing" my car, cleaning out the garage, and weeding my asparagus bed and my driveway. But whatever I do, stuff is piling up somewhere. If I clean in the front yard, laundry is piling up in the house; if I stay inside scrubbing floors the weeds are growing unchecked in the yard!

And then you get piles like these: (my mending basket and the library books that needed to be read and returned before they got anymore fines)

What's a woman to do? In a sense, we are all Sisyphus.
