Monday mornings usually find me happily doing household chores. Today I found that baking soda is the best cleaner that I have ever used on my stainless steel sink...it shines. And Murphy's Oil Soap on the cabinets, desks and wash stand...can't beat it, plus I just love the fresh smell it leaves behind. I also cleaned the windows in the living room and kitchen and Tomer took down the blinds, scrubbed them and hung them out back to dry in the sun. Tomorrow, we will tackle the bedroom windows and blinds.
Since the cooler weather has seemed to settle in and the days are getting shorter. I am now looking inside my home and preparing for winter projects. More painting and maybe a little re-do in the living room. Nothing elaborate but a change of color would certainly be nice. Recovering the throw pillows and new curtains are thoughts but not an absolute.
I could go on and on. I reckon, because I was blessed to be a housewife and stay at home Mama, this place has always been the center of my life.
"Taking care of what you have, keeping things neat and tidy" Daddy said "honors the Lord." And I feel, it shows gratitude for the things that He has blessed me with. Certainly much more than I have ever deserved. Not as much as some...but everything I need. I have never known hunger or lacked anything. God has blessed me, given me a husband who takes care of us all. And Daughters and their families to share our days with. As the years of my life go quickly by, I am thankful for everyday, every chore accomplished...and for love...for surely the greatest of these is love.
Love to all!
