Weekly Home Blessing
Good morning! How do you feel about Monday mornings? Sometimes they seem to sneak up on me and I'm faced with a huge t0-do of chores, school lessons and errands. One of the things I try to do on Sunday afternoon is a weekly home blessing (also known as a tidy-up), to help things go more smoothly for the coming week.
I put on a favorite apron.
Light a candle, so that by the time I'm finished cleaning, the scent is all through the house.
Often, I fill a small ziplock halfway with baking soda and a few drops of essential oil, mix and sprinkle over all the carpet. Here are a few more things I take care of:
Finishing up any laundry leftover from the weekend, especially the kitchen towels and dishcloths.
Gather school supplies and books together.
Water the flower pots.
Tidy up the fridge.
~Empty garbage buckets
~Dust the living room
When I'm all done, I relax with a favorite book and wait for the new week to begin.
Do you do anything special to get ready for Monday?
