The little things

The past two weeks Crystal, over at Biblical Womanhood, has been hosting "Making your home a haven". I have enjoyed reading her suggestions and ideas, but have had to adapt it to fit what I am able to do. My husband and I do not have any littles just yet, so I am up and out the door, just like him every day. This weekend we took the time to work together to attack our bedroom and laundry. Although we got it all done, I didn't get any before/after pictures. In the next few days, I will still be working towards completing the pile of ironing.

Today I was fortunate enough to have a "snow/ice day". Rather than sleeping in, which my sweet husband encouraged, I decided if I was going to get anything done, I needed to get up and get going. On my list was grocery shopping, baking, clean laundry closet, and clean the linen closet. Each cleaning project took just a few minutes. I am hoping for another snow day tomorrow, to tackle.

Way to make good use of your day off! Isn't it amazing how much difference a few minutes can make!?

Did you get any baking done? The consensus around the Corn household is that the "World's Easiest Christmas Candy" from Biblical Womanhood is pretty tasty.

I loved her tips, and it looks like you've done a great job of using them. Congratulations! I'm hoping for some free time in January to finish my big reorganization I started a few months ago.
