Although the rain makes things seem peaceful and calm outside, things inside have been a bit hectic as we spend our third day in a row mostly inside after getting used to the joys of being outside so much of the day. The volume is rising, indoor obstacle courses are being made and the cushions are not staying on the couch.
The young ones do go outside for a little bit at a time to feed the ducks, check on the toads, or visit with the baby goats.
I have taken the opportunity to do some cleaning. After feeling overwhelmed about where to start in terms of housekeeping, above and beyond the dishes, laundry, and sweeping - I think I am going to have each day of the week be reserved for a particular room.
Monday - Our Bedroom
Tuesday - Dining Room
Wednesday - Kitchen
Thursday - Upstairs
Friday - Living Room
(dear husband deep cleans the bathroom on Thursdays and I give it a quick wipe down nearly each day)
So today, I washed our windows in the bedroom, shook out the lace cover on our bedstand, washed down the lamp and clock and our bureau. I don't plan to get to too caught up with this and fret if I miss a day because if it were nice today I would be outside planting more potatoes and the bedroom dust would have to wait until next Monday.,
Warm wishes, Tonya
