Multitasking At It’s Best

 

Middlemarch by George EliotA quote from Middlemarch:

“Mrs. Garth at certain hours was always in the kitchen, and this morning she was carrying on several occupations at once there – making her pies at the well-scoured deal table on one side of that airy room, observing Sally’s movements at the oven and dough-tub through an open door, and giving lessons to her youngest boy and girl, who were standing opposite to her at the table with their books and slates before them. A tub and a clothes-horse at the other end of the kitchen indicated an intermittent wash of small things also going on.”

Sound like a typical day at my work only with different tasks…
