15s with the timer this afternoon

✓Kitchen
✓Dining Area
✓Living Area
✓Front Bath

second round:

✓Master Bedroom
✓Master Bath
╰☆╮Hall & Stairs (switched)
✓Dd11's Closet

I got to the hall and realized the decluttering was HRHs, not mine, and the cleaning was current. So I convinced puny-feeling dd to go with me to her room where she laid on her bed and guided me through some decluttering of her closet.

Smile, I ate so well through the morning but got a little off-track with a BLT for late lunch. (white flour) Anyway, your post made me think that we really do our homemaking a favor when we eat right, 'cause we're going to be ready and able to do projects when we feel "light" and well.

Either today or tomorrow I'll finish these:

Next up 15s:
Master Closet
Quiltmaking Studio
Dd11's Room if she's up to it

❦ I'm impressed! You got a lot done, Harriet! You're right about eating. It certainly effects my focus and productivity. I ended up taking a nap, finishing a book and talking with dh for a couple of hours - a real treat. My tank is full - ready to start the week. Since it's already 9, I'm going to pack it in for the night. Start fresh in the morning.

Lynlee your keyboard got well! :)

I'm so tickled, because I gave 15 minutes each to 10 areas of my home today.
✓Kitchen
✓Dining Area
✓Living Area
✓Front Bath
✓Master Bedroom
✓Master Bath
✓Dd11's Closet
✓Master Closet
✓Quiltmaking Studio
✓Dd11's Room

I think I'll probably remember what I was about to do when the timer rang in each one. So if I can get to them again soon, I'll keep up momentum and keep on plan for sprucing up.

Lynlee ~ I thought you were very resourceful and creative in how you adapted to the pc glitch. :D I'll have to remember that little trick.

❦ Hope you're staying nice and toasty, Lynlee.

New week. New day. New plan. My plan is to stay disciplined in my morning routines, so that I can have fun and indulge my flexible and impulsive nature in the afternoons. Morning pages/bible reading/walk/15 outside are done.
