Jeremiah 32: 39-41, "They will be my people, and I will be their God. I will give them singleness of heart and action, so that they will always fear me for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good to them, and I will inspire them to fear me, so that they will never turn away from me. I will rejoice in doing good and will assuredly plant them in this land with all my heart and soul."Lord, please give me a singleness of heart and action - that I may fear You. For my own good and for the good of my sweet children and their children. Thank You for Your Word! Amen.
Next, the ladies were up and we stripped their beds right away and got the first load of laundry going before getting Samuel up. He got up, was nursed and changed and I began fixing breakfast.
The girls couldn't seem to wait to do a workbook page/color - so they did that while I toasted leftover Applesauce Pancakes.
We enjoyed breakfast and our Bible reading/book for the day.
I emptied the dishwasher and dishdrainer, switched the laundry and began on the huge mound of laundry to be accomplished today:
We read books, got dressed and by the time we'd done all of this - it was time for Samuel to go back down for his morning nap. While he slept - we worked on making some closet dividers for clothes that fit now and ones that we're saving for later. I traced a CD on a piece of construction paper (the girls share a closet, so the color is my clue whose clothes they are!) - then they colored to decorate the circles with markers.
We cut them out and laminated them with Contact paper. I let them watch a short movie while I did the Contact paper and put the sheets back on their beds: (note: I realized the dividers showing in the picture are the ones I made for Samuel's closet)
Next, Samuel was up and we all headed into the ladies room to start on their closet. Oh, yes - they are little ladies - they wanted to change their clothes the entire time! It was cute - and challenging to get much done! But, I did manage to sort the clothes into Emily Now, Emily Later, Rachel Now, Rachel Later. After that - I folded a load of clothes and got them put away, nursed Samuel and we did his closet as well.
Next it was time for lunch - and play and clean up, etc... When everyone was quiet, I waxed the top of the china cabinet and polished the silver. Then, I pulled out the filing and did all of that plus the needed shredding.
Right about that time, David called and said he had arranged a babysitter and was taking me out to dinner! It was so much appreciated and it was a blessing to have some time to spend with just him! So, we'll have hamburgers and oven fries tomorrow night!
After we got home from dinner, I loaded the dishwasher, make pumpkin pie popsicles (recipe to come tomorrow) and continued on the laundry. Four loads are put away, two loads are waiting to be folded/put away. I did not do any mending today or any ironing. Those still await.
Hope you all had a great day!
Updated: I forgot to mention that my sister is my motivator in closet organization especially where little clothes are concerned! She suggested the closet dividers and has a great idea for inventory too!
