The majority of my day was spent
blessing our home...
I intended to only vacuum the dining room
but saw the flooring around the rug
needed to be swept and cleaned.
So I pulled out the furniture from the wall,
swept and hand mopped the flooring.
As I was doing that,
I noticed the six windows in the dining room
needed a desperate cleaning,
so I was able to do that (inside and out).
When I finished the floor in the dining room,
it looked nice and white
but being next to the hall and kitchen,
there was a distinguished line
marking where I had stopped, so...
I continued on... mopping and drying. phew!
Afterwards, I tackled the tons
of paperwork and books that had accumulated
in the dining room on every available space.
Then I decided to wash the windows
that were in the living room, too,
after vacuuming that room and the reading room.
I was, also, able to squeeze in two loads of laundry.
It was a real blessing to get it all accomplished.
Ally worked on schoolwork most of the day
and is being a sweetheart by making supper this evening.
She was excited to finish her medieval dress
over the weekend and is all set to wear it
next week for our trip...
The younger ones helped with some cleaning
and enjoyed creative play and educational games,
along with silent reading.
Here they were during one of those times of play...
We were, also, excited over the weekend
to get a couple of postcards from Daddy...
The one on the left cracked us up.

He wrote that he was in a similar situation recently. lol
Now I'm off to eat supper
and read more of our read-aloud this evening.
I hope y'all have enjoyed your day. ;o)
