30 Days of Thankfulness Day 12: Our Home

I love our home. It’s a compact house on a rather busy residential street in small town Kentucky. We had to convert a bedroom to create a dining room, and I have to share that dining room for my office, but I love our home. The backyard is big enough to hold the dog, the kids, and a relatively large garden. We utilize every single room inside, and have a huge basement that holds way too much storage (I am so enamored of the simplicity & less is more mindset and am making the basement my goal for the year.)

This is the Time of Year…

…that floors go unswept, dishes sit in the dishwasher, and laundry is lucky to make it from washer to dryer before having to be re-washed. That ground gets tilled, seeds get planted, and flower pots and beds get filled.

And the Winner Is…

Back when we did our first giveaway, we had few enough entries that we printed out the names, cut them out, and Kaylee drew a name from a hat. We had TOO many entries this time! So we used Random.org.

3 Chores You Should Do Every Night

Evening chores are the hardest. Most of us have put in a long day and our bed beckons. It’s so easy to think that you can tackle it in the morning refreshed and ready for another day. But when you put it off, then you put it off again and put it off again until you’ve lost the control of your environment. If you can accomplish these three chores evening, before retiring for the night, you can keep a handle on your household. These are the three main areas that typically get out of control and bog down our time when it’s time to clean. If they’re already done, then we can focus on the actual cleaning rather than catching up.

3 Chores You Should Do Every Morning

I accomplish these tasks before I even pour my first cup of coffee in the morning. These three chores will take less than 10 minutes out of your entire morning, but they will make a world of difference in how your home feels, and will help set the tone for the entire day.

Clean Sweep

Spring cleaning made a lot of sense for centuries. When homes were heated with wood or coal, the winter heating season brought a build-up of soot and ash on walls, furniture, and fabrics. Spring cleaning marked the end of the heating season, when the entire house was aired and scrubbed clean, when windows could be opened and the winds of spring would blow through the house, refreshing it.

Easily Amused

The more I stared at all of those beautiful, shiny cleaning machines, the more I realized that buying our own steam cleaner would actually be much more cost effective that renting one about every other month.

Changing Seasons

I love the change in seasons. As summer ends and the mornings cool, the leaves change colors and school routines fall in place, my mind turns to — seasonal housekeeping!
