Sunday house

I love my house most on a Sunday evening. All the laundry is done. The beds are made up with fresh linens. There are fresh flowers from the garden in the kitchen, the living room, the bathroom, the dining room. Everything is put away and clean. The kids are clean, with full bellies, in their beds. The trash is taken out. The refrigerator and pantry are fully stocked, as is the bowl of pretty, fresh fruit on the counter.

All is well.

This is the best thing I've heard all day! It sounds delicious.

That would be my goal but I was so tired after all the activities this past week that the bare minimum got done. With my schedule it works better for me to knock out a little bit each day. The downside to that system is while one area looks great another one is already going down hill.

I do it like Joan. Of course that means that I've got the same problem is that the whole house is never clean at the same time usually. My hubby did a lot of 'picking up and shoving other places where it's not seen' yesterday (his version of cleaning) which is nice, except that stuff actually has places that it goes....

Hmmm. I think I should strive for my house to feel like this on Sundays...
