Doing the dishes

I have a crazy kind of quirk. Well, I have many, but this one I'll share with you. I don't like to do the dishes unless I can sing while doing the dishes. I don't know when it started, but I find it very relaxing. My kitchen is pretty much set off from the rest of the house and the sink is at the end of the kitchen and to wash the dishes I have to turn my back to the rest of the world. We have a dishwasher, but it doesn't work, but I don't really like them anyway-it takes too long to do the dishes! I don't hear very well, so with the position of the sink I tune everything out.

But for the last week or so I've been sick, sounding like a frog with a frog in it's throat. I couldn't even go to choir practice last week because about everytime I opened my mouth out came a coughing fit. But tonight I just couldn't stand not having any silverware (we've been eating lots of sandwiches on paper plates so just the silverware gets used--Oh, and the picture isn't of my sink either, I found it in a Yahoo search) so I put the soap and water in the sink. I started singing a song, and to my suprise, it was decent. I'm not quite up to my Saprano voice, maybe somewhere between Alto and Saprano, but I managed to sing the whole song without coughing!

It's nice to get back to normalcy!

I think you snuck into my house and took that picture.

Glad you can sing again and get the dishes done. LOL

I'm that same way with vacuuming and lawn mowing! If I'm walkin', I'm singin'! I'm sure the entire neighborhood has gotten an earful of me over the years but I don't care. That mower gets humming along and I just SING!!!
