Makeing Your Home a Haven - July 21, 2008

A Little Beauty

Today's Make Your Home a Haven challenge is finding a way to beautify some part of your home.
I chose to put up some pictures that I have had sitting around, some since January. (I will try to post some pictures later.)

My husband and I are picture addicts. Since we have been married, about 15 months, we have taken over 1500 pictures! (For those of you who are counting that's about 100 a month.) It's a good thing we have a digital camera. So, today to make our home more like a home, I decided to frame a picture of the two of us and one of the three of us and place them around our living room.

I would have loved to do more today, but I am still trying to get our home unpacked. It seems like there is always something that comes up to keep me from getting that done. Then I run in circles, doing tiny bits on ten different projects and accomplish nothing. So today I have set the following goals:

~ Clean both bathrooms (done)

~ Wash towels (half way done, still waiting on the washer to be finished with a load so I can start a new one)

~Complete morning routine (see my morning routine here) and I have added reading to my daughter,today's reading was Exodus 10, all of which is done except that handwashing of dishes, because I have some dishes that must soak first

~Go through craft/sewing/cross-stitching/beading/etc...totes and weed out unnecessary things

I think I just might accomplish all my goals since it is only 10am and I have only a few chores left and then on to the weeding!

Blessings to you all!

Hm! I did the weeding outside first and then planted some plants while it was still fairly cool outside and then came in to work. Has the little one memorized Exodus 10 yet? :)

Just give her another week or so. :D

Wow, it sounds like you had a busy day planned. Were you able to get everything completed?

I love pictures too. I can easily take 100 in a day. Aren't digital cameras the best?

Thanks so much for stopping by our site. We are so glad you enjoyed it!

Well I got the pictures framed but I think I would like to decorate the mats somehow, so I still have that to do. And I unpacked everything from the totes, so now it's just a matter of organizing them and putting everything back together. :D

Good job getting so much done! Some days it can be so hard to focus on tasks.

My two big chores for today are getting the grading all caught up for the year so I can start thinking about next year's schooling....a huge job for me.

And grocery shopping. The home-beutifying will have to wait for another day...however, we do have painters arriving later to power wash in preparation to pain next I guess we are beautifying our home...just not me doing!

Hello, I just came by to say hi. I saw your blog on Titus 2 and thought I'd stop by. I want to put you on my side bar so as to come by again.
