Cleaned, Organized, and a Happy Mom
Sigh. But what a happy sigh it is.
I cleaned out a small basket, that had a bunch of odds and ends tossed in it. I found my desk keys, and an envelope with family history items from my Aunt. I thought I had them all organized into one safe are, but I had forgotten about it.
I found "noters" from Youngest, from when she used to write me notes off and on. I actually have a scrapbook for them, because they were so interesting, funny, and worth saving.
I found two sets of prayer cards too. I think I will look through my wooden embroidery hoops and make a pocket organizer for a "prayer for the day." Or week.
I cleaned down the wood work, dusted, tossed out, put stuff in it's place, and unburied a basket full of saved recipes (from magazines). I have some recipes on cards and in plastic covers too. I'll most likely toss everything (expect the plastic card covers). Gulp.
A few tiny spiders made there way up into the sweeper, and the webs wiped down.
I saved the basket of recipes to tackle today. Then it's onto another bookshelf (that one is definitely not as interesting, nor full of surprises). But that's not the end of it either. I am deep cleaning two more areas.
I however, am having allergy issues with the dust. It's not my favorite cleaning job, but it must get done (and often).
Four of us made it to the gym last night. I myself, prefer to go at 5:00am, and that gears me up for the day. Hopefully, I can convince Hubby to do that.
School had another two hour delay, so roads could be cleaned off. I think we are due to get more snow later today too, but not much. I am hoping it warms up, so my hens start laying again. Yesterday we got one egg.
