Exodus 23:14 Three times thou will keep a feast to Me in the year. 

Leviticus 23:1 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 

2 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, Concerning the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy assemblies, even these are My feasts. ...

4 These are the feasts of the Lord, even holy assemblies, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.  

God ordained three holidays per year.

Today's Bible Study-

Exodus 23c-Land Sabbath

Romans 6

Today's work in Romans 




nothing. I worked on the lesson I'm supposed to give at church tonight instead.

Today's Hymn

7465 recorded steps yesterday.

Worked in the garden yesterday, but I think I'm going to have to ask for help. I don't think I can get it ready in time by myself.

I think I need to go to the hardware store and buy a sheet of plywood and some hinges and latches. We are having trouble controlling Pepper, keeping her out of rooms we don't want her in. I never did this with toddlers because they grow out of this stage so fast it wasn't worth the work. Dog's not so much.

To Do:
  • Pull music for worship service
  • got stuff posted to fb
  • all the normal chores
  • clean out the cars so I can mothball the volvo wagon that will take too much money to fix and have a couple other storage vehicles hauled off.
  • finish setting up the newsletters for the blogs I am doing
  • switch my son's phone
  • order new eye drops
  • weekly home blessing

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

  • Cleaned a car
Nursing on demand and parental authority
My take? Newborns absolutely must be nursed on demand. No exceptions. But older babies need to be eased onto a schedule. There is a big difference between a newborn crying because he is hungry and a 9 month old doing the same. 


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:  

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

Today's Meals:

  • SOS
  • SOS
  • Turkey

FlyLady Daily Mission

  • Clean the silver ware drawer

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

  • Monday - Declutter & Wipe the Kitchen Counters
    Tuesday - Declutter items from 1 kitchen drawer
    Wednesday - Declutter leftovers from the fridge
    Thursday - Declutter items from 1 kitchen cabinet
    Friday - Wipe the stove top and microwave
My version that fits my house:
  • Straighten the cupboards
  • Clean the fridge
  • Clean the stove
  • Move books from one storage to another.

"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.
