I started a ragu this morning. So much chopping and cooking before it can be put to simmer. But now it is simmering and will be there for hours.
Now, I have to clean the kitchen. I put all the dirty dishes in the washer, but now, the kitchen really needs to be scrubbed from tip to toe and counters cleared off of collected debris
and floors cleaned etc. etc.
I don't want to.
But there is a bright blue sky and cool breeze and all in all it's a lovely day.
I stayed away from making complicate things from scratch for a long time
