Happy homemaking, ladies! I thought I’d share a bit about my Sunday morning today, which is a bit different. I usually concentrate on weekday mornings, but I did get several things accomplished, so I thought I’d share!
To us, Sunday is the first day of the week, and therefore is a regular work day. Our faith is more messianic in nature, in case you were wondering.
I started off the day bundling up so I could jog outside. Oh, I am not cold natured at all. In fact, I woke my husband up at 4 am, wondering if the heat was working! I am not sure how I feel about the weather turning cold again, although I certainly believe that all of the Lord’s seasons are good and needful.
After jogging, I dressed in a denim skirt and flannel shirt. I needed warmth! I tried a kerchief on my head, and got Moses dressed. My husband and oldest son were headed to Home Depot to pick up a few things, and I asked to come along to stop by Walmart. I needed to purchase a few warm pieces of clothing for my children, especially my eleven-year-old. He has hit a growth spurt.
While in Walmart, I picked up flour sack towels for a few Etsy orders, jackets for three of my children, and a handful of shirts for my son. I also purchased Moses the cutest dinosaur hat, and new shoe insoles for my daughter.
Satisfied, we went to Home Depot to purchase lumber for a shed build and smoke detectors. On the way home, my husband surprised me by buying Subway for an early lunch. I ate a Veggie Sub on wheat bread with baked chips. Yum!
Once we got home, my children excitedly tried on their new things while I cut Makynlee’s insoles to fit her boots. I then took a look at my kitchen. Ladies, there is so much organization work that I need to do in my home! Little by little I’m chipping away at it as we come up with storage solutions.
Today I decided to bring some canned goods to our basement in order to clear the counters of items that really belonging the cabinets. After taking multiple trips, I was able to fit our fruit, granola bars, and box of homegrown potatoes into our kitchen pantry. Hooray!
In an mood to organize, I decided to tackle my husband’s bedside table as well. It wasn’t too bad, and I was able to find rightful “homes” for everything in about fifteen minutes.
So, that was my morning. Buying clothing for my family and organizing!
I hope your day has been a good one. Remember, every little thing you do for your family matters. The Lord (YHWH) sees. He sees the heart you have for your home.
I write these posts as an encouragement, but also to remind myself of the small blessings and accomplishments that happen around here. Remember, small things become big things. You have a great purpose within the walls of your home.
The wise woman builds her house, But the foolish pulls it down with her hands.
