Haiku Friday: The chore I love

Isn't there something, at least one thing, that you love to do around the house? People often talk about the chores they hate, but I know there are some that we love-- or at least like better than the others. Let's haiku about that this week.

Here, I will go first:

Cleaning out gutters--
Handfuls of wet, icky goo
So satisfying.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 syllable formula, and have some fun!

Inhale fresh laundry:
Sheets and towels, socks and shirts.
I adore that chore!

Sitting in my chair
Watching baseball on TV
Do I get credit?

Her hands loved the dust
But mostly what she uncovered
With an ancient shirt

A photograph of
A baby's toothless smile,a
Depression glass sugar

Bowl from Aunt Ida
A single mother in the 30s
A tiny book of

Burns her ex-husband
Gave her it's red cover told
What might have been,this

Is why I cry when
I dust,remembering,remembering
My tears are like wine.

Cleaning the garage
A treasure trove of surprise
And lots of cobwebs
Our yard is quite small.
Our mower is a reel one.
Soft clickity-clack.

Shoveling driveway
At dawn, the streets are quiet
I start my rhythm
