This is a random post day:
1) Little Dan has a cute new quilt from his Grandma and Aunts. He loves it!
2) I am back on my routine that works for me and my house is so clean. This tip is super simple, but really, really works (at least for me). I spend 15 minutes in the morning right after everyone leaves tidying, doing dishes, sweeping, whatever needs to be done to make the house presentable. Then, right before bed, I set the timer again for 15 minutes and tidy everything up. This one routine alone does wonders for me. I have been doing it off and on for years...it always works until I get too lazy or tired one night and then it is all down hill until I revive the routine.
This time I have added setting the breakfast table during the night 15 minutes. This has helped breakfast run more smoothly, too. Partly due to the fact that now I know before I ever go to sleep what I am making for breakfast, since I already set the table!
3) Finally, I think we are enjoying the most beautiful weather on the planet! It is sunny, 75ish degrees, a slight breeze. It is so gorgeous! What a blessing! It is the most beautiful weather ever!
