39 You will embroider the coat of fine linen, and the turban will be made of fine linen, and belt of needlework.

40 For Aaron's sons you will make coats and belts and caps for glory and for beauty. 

41 You will put them on your brother Aaron and his sons, and anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, so they can minister to Me in the priest's office.

42 And you will make them linen underwear to cover their skin from the waist to the thighs.

43 Aaron and his sons will wear them so when they come into the Tabernacle of the Congregation, or when they come near the Altar to minister in the holy place, so they carry no sin and die. This will be a law forever to him and his children after him.

Today's work in Romans 


23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?

25 But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 

27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.


23 And not just the creation, but us too, who have God's Spirit as our first gift from Him, also groan in our hearts, waiting for the day we have full rights as His children, including the new bodies He has promised us. 
24 We were given this hope when we were saved, but if we already have something, we don't need to hope for it.

25 But if we are hoping for what we don't yet have, then we are patiently waiting for it.

26 In the same way, the Spirit also helps our weaknesses because we don't know what we should pray for like we should, but the Spirit Himself pleads for us with groans that words can't express. 

27 And He that already knows what is in our hearts, knows what the Spirit is saying, because he pleads for us saints according to the will of God.

Today's Hymn

? recorded steps yesterday. Didn't wear the phone/

Chicken Polka Dots Update:

  • Joy (#1-26yo), who started it all with the shingles, is doing better, finally. 
  • Josh (#9-6yo) is bouncing off the walls and his spots are fading.
  • Jackie (#7-13yo) is in the most miserable stage; unbearable itching. She took an oatmeal, chamomile, calandula bath at 6 this morning to try to get some relief.
  • Jim (#2-23yo) doesn't feel good. 
  • My arm hurts so bad I actually took painkiller last night and slept in the recliner (deep muscle pain is the first sign of shingles :-( I haven't injured the arm and can't think of any other reason it would be hurting like this)
  • Andy doesn't feel good either. 

To Do:
  • all the normal chores
  • finish setting up the newsletters for the blogs I am doing
  • put price tags on all my inventory
  • switch my son's phone
  • finish prepping the beds for planting
  • list things with craigslist

Tuh Done (what I've finished for the week):

  • did a detailed inventory of my Lilla Rose stuff. (I have decided that I need to go back to a detailed inventory to better protect myself from accusations of credit card fraud)
  • Pulled music for worship service
  • watered my trees
  • made the puppy gates
  • Set up loyalty cards for BeST Clips 

Egalitarianism’s dirty secret: the sexual objectification of women

Poverty or simplicity?School shootings, teacher's strikes, anxious kids; solution? eliminate cumpulsory schooling

Flylady often blames our mothers for why we don't dust, but I disagree. My mother never made me dust, much less "dust the right way," (move everything off, wipe the shelf down, put everything back after cleaning it). I think "dusting the right way" is just unpleasant work (like cleaning a toilet). No one enjoys it by the nature of being human. I do agree using the feather duster is fun, though. It makes the job much better. Oh, it doesn't get all the dust and what it does get a good deal is just wiped off the shelf onto the floor. But, duuhhh, dust first, then vacuum up what you knocked off. So much nicer. Not perfect, but nicer.

For my Daily routines, see the sidebar.

Monthly Habit we are building:

Moving for 10 minutes a day

I try to walk around the block everyday we have school. That takes 25 minutes (half of it is up hill, so slow). I need to find a way to get my moving in on non-school days.

Weekly zone focus:  

Master Bedroom
(You know, my "moods to clean" run about a week behind Flylady's schedule. I think the week of reading about doing a zone makes me want to tackle it. I may just set my zones to be a week behind hers and work with it instead of trying to focus on what she says.)
(This is the zone we are tackling all our monthly and less often chores in this week)

Today's Meals:

  • SOS
  • SOS
  • quesadillas/burritoes

FlyLady Daily Mission

  • Clean the nightstands

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

  • Declutter the closet
"Do it Now."

"To take the first step in faith, you don't have to see the whole staircase: just take the first step." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This applies to a clean house, too.

"Anything worth doing is worth doing Imperfectly" - Flylady

"Baby Steps."

"You can do anything for 15 minutes." 

"You are not behind. Just jump in where you are."

"Your house didn't get this way overnight. It won't get under control in a day. It takes time."

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

Do you use a feather duster? Do you like it? 

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.
