wishful Wednesday

in which our plucky heroine is a clever, if a bit wistful, monkey...

Back in the days when I lived up in OlyWa, for years and years I had the most magnificent swap ever. On alternate weeks, my friend M would get her house cleaned, and on alternate weeks I'd get a massage. Did wonders for both of us, and as all good swaps, we each were happy with the results and felt that our efforts were well recompensed. I've tried a few times here in Portland to set up something similar, but for various reasons it has not really worked out. (yet... I'm not giving up hope of a future success)

I really miss the assistance working out the stresses that accumulate in odd corners, and after the debacle of last Friday, my lower legs are feeling the trauma. M, my calves miss your skill and strength; wishful I am that I could find a local person willing to swap skill for skill - I do lots of useful and lovely kinds of things, at least I do when both hands are functioning, which should return before too long...

Speaking of which, 'twas needful to wash some dishes here... and lefthand is not yet really up for the task. I figured out that if I didn't fill the dishpans too full, and if I balanced the oven rack over the washwater, I could get things washed with minimal use of lefthand. Is slow, and a bit awkward, but definitely doable...
