Each day select a few tasks from the cleaning checklist. A download for the cleaning checklist is on my Facebook Page (My Heart’s at Home) under the Files tab. You can access it from the Files tab on this page. I printed a set and put them in page protectors. I keep them in my planning notebook.
Today I have a trip to Lavender Fields with the wonderful ladies of In His Garden, a gardening Bible study that combines information on gardening from Master Gardeners and wisdom from the Master Gardener so I am cutting this short to get ready to leave.
Have a lovely day!
Hugs,
Mary
Interesting Quote I read today from Adrian Rogers: “If you are without offense you are without effect.” What do you think?
