Home: Tidy




















I am joining Monica in her Lady Wisdom Series this week. Yesterday's theme was Tidy and here is my list of accomplishments:

Quiet Time: Tea Time with God pg 8&9
Breakfast: Chocolate Silk Coffee (Folgers) & Banana Oatmeal Bread
Laundry: Wash, fold, and put away 3 loads of laundry- towels, husbands & I, and daughter #2
Tidy, tidy, tidy! I walk around my house and put everything away that is out of place each morning and again before bed.
Read: I have been reading Christmas themed books all of November and the one I am currently reading is The Gift of Christmas Present by Melody Carlson

My Office: Clean off the top of my desk and put thing away.
Planning: Gather my cookbooks and cooking magazines so I can menu plan later this week including for the holidays and special treats.

Decorations: collect, box up, and put away all the fall decorations. I like to clean up the seasonal decorations and leave the house bear for the week while I clean and plan for the next season. We will put up the Christmas decorations this weekend so today the day to get it done.




































































 Lunch: Leftovers

Computer: Check email

Master Bedroom: put things away, and do a detailed cleaning.
















































Kitchen: Pick up the kitchen and put things away. Wash, dry, and put away the dishes. Wash the top of the stove and the refrigerator shelves.

Baking: I baked 2 dozen oatmeal chocolate chip cookies from dough that I had pre-frozen.
Dinner: Leftovers
Date Night: My husband and I went to the Annual Christmas Walk. We looked at many downtown stores and even enjoyed some cookies. This was a free event and we didn’t buy anything and the cookies were free also. My husband got lots of ideas he said of things I liked that could be Christmas gifts. I seen a really cute tea cup wall hanger and a matching tiered tea cup stand that I may have to go back to get soon since my husband said I could go back for them so I wouldn’t have to wait for Christmas. They were about $17.00 each which is a little pricy to me but sometimes you have to go for it.

Computer: read blogs and blog.
Tidy, tidy, tidy! My before bed routine.
