I had an enormous list of things I wanted to accomplish today. It is only 9:30 in the morning, so I have plenty of time. But then I came across this photograph and was intrigued. Can you imagine how much work the typical housewife did before all our modern conveniences were invented? No wonder she was slim and fit! She worked so hard each day!
This has inspired me to make my list and try my very best to get it all done.
Would you like to see my plans? Here goes!
1. Clean the Kitchen.
2. Wash the Kitchen Floor.
3. Vacuum the living room.
4. Tidy the living room.
5. Clean the bathroom.
6. Do Laundry and hang clothes on the line.
7. Plan the shopping and menus for the rest of the week.
8. Finish hand-sewing two aprons (both are almost finished).
9. Make a pleasant supper tonight.
10.Do our Family Church time - twice today.
11. Go grocery shopping.
I think that's all I will commit to for one day. I will have the children do their own chores and schoolwork and we will spend some time outdoors. I will have to print out this list and cross off each item as it is completed. It will be a relief to see each one finished.
How much housework are you planning to do today? Hope you enjoy the process of keeping a home!
Have a lovely day!
