Today's Bible Study- Genesis 27 
and Romans 1

Today's Hymn This is a hymn written by Charles Wesley for Easter Morning service.

5000 Steps yesterday. (a lot of sitting this weekend working on teh computer, getting ready for my first Facebook party.)

I did the minimum of my morning routine this morning.

Today's schedule includes finishing my morning routine, breakfast, school, checking both the church and my own books (I think I have them caught up but need to be sure), working on the church's music, weekly chores, and working on the facebook party.

Some Super Bowl! It says a lot about Tome Brady that every one of us thought he could pull it out until that last throw.

Need to list some more books on eBay as well as things on craigslist. I'm not really so concerned with the money as the fact that our local thrift stores are simply getting too selective with what they will accept as donations. These things are too good for me to be able to throw them away and I can't give them away, so I'll sell them.

I still need to make some videos in preparation for he FB party.

Death is not the worst thing

  Early Morning Routine: Finished

  • Dress
  • Swish and Swipe the Master bath (change trash bags in Master Bath can, wash the mirror, wash the toilet)
  • Made my bedand changed my sheets
  • Straightened up my bedroom.
  • Started a load of laundry
  • Fixed Hubby's KoolAid for supper
  • Fixed my coffee
  • Devotions time
  • Worked on my Dad's book for 5 minutes (I literally set a timer)

I still need to:

  • Dry and Fold laundry(My norm is one load a day)
  • Do my emails, deleting everything I won't need in the future
  • Check off the children's computer school work
  • Clean the Family bath
  • Make the 6yo's bed (its a loft bed and he can't reach it well enough to make it)
  • Vacuum the kids rooms and hall
  • Water my plants
  • Shower
  • Cut up veggies for munchies
  • Walk around the block
  • School

Later today: (having trouble getting to these at all)

  • Practice my music
  • Do an herbal lesson
Evening Routine
  • Fix the coffee on the timer for the morning.
  • Fix water for Hubby and I (big, 100 cups like you buy at convenience stores. This is a day's water and we aim to drink the whole thing.)
  • Shine my sink
  • I'm adding "clean up 'hot spots'"
  • Set all the mouse traps.

Monthly Habit we are building:

Decluttering Daily: need to clean out the basement, attic, garage, storage? Set a timer, making an appointment with yourself to spend 5 minutes a day working on it.

I think I will start with the cars that are storing books. These need to be listed on eBay, so its a bit more involved than just tossing them in the trash.

Weekly zone focus:  


(This is the zone we are tackling all our monthly and less often chores in this week) 

Today's Meals:

  • sos
  • sos
  • Pork chops and mashed potatoes

 Today's FlyLady Mission:

  • Clean the stove

Tami's assignments (Tami is a homeschooling mom of 6 who is a partner of FlyLady):

Monday - Declutter & Wipe the Kitchen Counters (Kind of did this over the weekend just because I was in the mood)
Tuesday - Declutter items from 1 drawer (I also did these over the weekend. Well, except for the three drawers that hold attachements to my mixer I seldom use. The mice have been in those, so....)
Wednesday - Decutter leftovers from the fridge (I do this automatically every couple of days.)
Thursday - Declutter items from 1 cabinet (I really only have one that needs it, and it will take less than 10 minutes)
Friday - Wipe stove top & microwave

Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!

How about you? What's on your list today?

Have a great day!

I highly recommend

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
