I have been in a bad habit of checking blogs and emails and not getting our day going in the mornings. So, today I am going to put first things first and tackle my morning chores and keep the kids on task. After school I will have time to sit a moment and check in with the world outside our home. On my cleaning schedule today is to clean the Master bath and kitchen. The kids are in charge of the other two baths. I also need to iron all Darryl's clothes for the week.
In prepreation for Kids Mart I got down boxes of clothing to go through. It took an hour for the boys to try on clothes to weed through a box I had clothes for them to grow into. Well, the boxes are sitting in our bedroom and have been there over a week. Today, I am going to get them up into the attic. I have three down and two are filled with items to put into our garage sale.
I also need to plant my carrots and lettuce and some flowers. I have some rectangular planters that I am going to plant the lettuce in. The carrots I will plant in my square foot garden. I planted my strawberries in a strawberry pot on the patio this weekend. I am excited to see some things growing again and know fresh food is on the way. I bought some peony and dahlia bulbs to plant. I also bought some chili pepper seed that I need to start indoors.
It makes my home sing when I am on schedule with my chores. If it is not raining I might set up supper on the patio since I will be grilling pork chops. The weather was in the 70's yesterday. What are you doing today to make your home sing? Join in at Momstheword.
