Happy Tuesday everyone!  It’s Day 2 of “A Intentional Day Of Rest”.  It’s my week of extra daily chores that will enable me to take a true day of rest on Sunday, my Sabbath. 

Yesterday, I was able to buy the ingredients for our make-ahead Sunday dinner.  I also changed all the beds in the house and washed the sheets and blankets/comforters.  I lost track of how many loads of laundry it took after load #4.   Ahhh, it feels so good to have it all done. 

Today, I did another load of laundry in my quest to stay on top of it all so that this weekend will be laundry-free.  However, that’s about as far as I got.  Again, struggling to figure out exactly what I can get done this early in the week that won’t have to be redone before the weekend. 

We do have company coming over Friday evening for dinner so that will kick my cleaning into high gear.  That will move the major cleaning into Wednesday and Thursday and leave just some spot cleaning for Saturday.  But maybe that’s how I should be cleaning anyway.  Deep cleaning middle of the week so that just light cleaning needs to be done Saturday… well, along with the yard work of course.

So, the plan for tomorrow?  Bathrooms and kitchen.  Two things that will be easy to do a quick wipe down on later.  In fact, the kids already do wipe downs every morning of the bathrooms with good ol Clorox Wipes.  So after my deep clean tomorrow, bathrooms are off my list for the week. Yipee!
