I can already hear the "boos" and "hisses!" Please don't hate me ~ I know I am in the minority on this, but I just love Mondays. I think it has something to do with a brand new week stretching before me, filled to the brim with possibilities. A fresh start, a new beginning!! With the weekend there usually comes fun and a lot of unstructured time and I do love that. However, there is something in my soul that just craves routine. Okay, I'm hearing more "boos" out there:) Especially with all the craziness and clutter that Christmas brings, I think I feel like my life is "cluttered" and "crazy," as well, and I DO NOT like that feeling at all!
So this morning found me doing what I love to do in my home. After my quiet time I started on several loads of laundry, so right now I can hear the the washer and dryer humming along:) The floor has been swept and mopped, counters thoroughly cleaned, trash emptied, shined kitchen sink, (if you follow Fly Lady you know how important this is;)
started dinner prep
Made bread, rolls, and a cinnamon loaf ~ I wish you could smell how good it smells here right now........ And yes, I know I'm a messy cook:)
Filled the fruit bowl with oranges ~ a healthy snack that is easy reach for my family;)
While I'm busy with my Monday morning chores I like to have some peppy music playing in the back ground and a yummy candle burning. This is my new fav~ it's called Cafe Au Lait~ funny thing is I don't like coffee at all, but I love the smell of it brewing. Go figure!!
Once I have everything clean and shiny I immediately start to feel better. (I think it's a "control" issue, y'all;) By the end of the day I'm tired, but it's a good tired. I have worked hard caring for my home, and I can't think of anything else I'd rather be doing. Okay, I'm off to clean the den!
I won't even talk about how I feel about rainy days.....................................:)
