Sunday’s are my favorite day of the week. A day with friends and family in fellowship.
A day to start over, begin again, refresh, renew…
So that makes Monday my second favorite day of the week…and today the house needed a fresh start after a long high fever from my little guy, E, 105.1!
The dishes piled, the clothing strewn, books scattered, toys tossed…and what started as a tidy has turned into a spring time purge…a “thinning out party” according to a dear friend.
Spring winds howl around our distinguished farm house–whistle through the window casings–and I am piling bags of “extra” on the front porch for the visiting turkey and deer to ponder.
This is beginning of a huge project we have undertaken on the farm–Farmhouse Remodel! (more on that in the future)
To prepare for the live-in remodel, I am thankful I began organizing my life over at Power Of Mom’s. I participated in a free webinar last month and have been a busy bee powering through all those random thoughts in my head and random notes in my life…the webinar is encouraging—well if you consider crying a sign of being encouraged. Here is the link to the webinar–they do have a paid portion of the website–it may or not be beneficial to you to have a step by step plan to getting organized in all aspects of your life–for me it was TIME.
I realized that if I am going to help Boss Man with his tasks on the farm–I needed to prove my abilities with my own tasks first. This is not a new idea–but it was the first time I was ready to take this serious–as soon as I began undertaking being organized, we decided it was also time for a remodel at our home.
Already it has been a fun journey–I love meeting people–and learning new information. After having five different companies look at our basement I have the pleasure of spending the afternoon with a structural engineer next week. Sometimes I think I just like to pay city people to visit me in the country.
Time for my break to end and the focused purge to continue, here’s to a new beginning!
