A Day of Tending the Nest
Monday - my very favorite day of the week. In fairness it's likely because I don't work outside my home, or it might be my least favorite. Monday seems to me to be the day to 'put everything back where it really belongs'. It's been a day that I've often tried to shove too much into. So I'm going to try something new - starting this week - set aside Monday as a day of blessing my home, my husband, and my heart.

Here's what I see going into Monday: clean the house, not deep cleaning, but enough to make the house smell and look good. That will involve some vacuuming, mopping the kitchen and bathrooms with water scented with peppermint oil. Then vacuuming and dusting most surfaces. Next, the laundry will be washed, dried, folded and put away. In fairness 'laundry' for us is only two or three loads, and I've always loved doing it, so it's a pleasure chore for me. What's more satisfying than taking smelly socks and clothes nasty from yard work and transforming them into something that smells fresh by evening?

Then I'll throw together a loaf of bread and put together some kind of soup or stew in the crockpot. That way supper will be ready when DH walks in the door. I love for him to walk into our house, and smell something yummy.

After that, I'm done. Ready to spend the rest of the day sewing or quilting or reading or knitting or scrapbooking - one of those activities I truly love but don't often spend an afternoon enjoying. Today it's quilting!

So Monday was already my favorite day - and it's about to become even more so!
