While I was showering, Eve "wiped baby Benny."
I love her. And this cute guy...
I'm always impressed with my kids. They are really good at things. Jakob watched a you tube and just carved this swan out of an apple. Isn't that fun?!
Today I want to clean and decorate my whole house, mop and organize my garage (yes, really), finish organizing my toy room, finishing pulling all the dead flowers out of my outside flowerpots, and then start cutting out a quilt with my girls after school. We'll see how that goes... (Please don't remind me of all the posts I wrote about keeping my To Do list small. Thank you.)
Someday I will blog about all the things I love about my new house. I really love it here. The previous owners were good people and you can feel their touch all around. I'm so grateful for them.
Just a few things I love...
It's a cup holder- for little plastic mouth rinsing cups.
The previous owners left one in every bathroom. At first I thought they were too country for me. But, I have grown to love them. My little ones drink all day long! I need to fill them back up today because they are so well used.
I smile every time I see 20 plastic cups deliberately arranged around my sink.
Built in ironing board. Love it.
(I had Eve all dressed and it looks like she has changed into her Christmas pjs.)
We have hooks in our closet too. It is so nice to hang my pajamas really fast in the morning. She used a lot of hooks and they're handy I tell you.
This is my needing to be mopped and organized garage. It is beautiful and I love it. I actually use some of those shelves for food because we don't have a walk-in pantry. This house has great storage.
See- another empty cup holder. My kids love these things.
It's a central vacuum. I love it- although I still haven't figured out how to empty it. I even have a vacuum port in my garage!
Maybe I'll add, build a new mantel to today's To Do. Ha!
See this little door? It's in my master bedroom next to Ben's changing table. Yes, Ben us with us too, for now.
There are at least four of these little storage rooms hidden around my house. They all have drywall and carpet scraps and slanted roofs. They are wonderful! I store all my fabric and individual file boxes of special things I save for each kid each year in this one, extra picture frames and decorating stuff in another, extra blankets and pillows for movie nights or company in another... Love these!
When I get done shopping, I throw a bag of bags into my little storage area in my bedroom. Every morning I grab a plastic bag and Eve and I empty all the trash upstairs before we come down. I love it.
My trashcans are almost always empty and clean. It's easy and starts my day with one small accomplishment. Why do I find joy in empty trashcans, storage space and country cup dispensers? I just don't know.
Time to start my day!!
Try to empty your trash cans first thing in the morning, see if it makes you happy.
Empty trash cans, shiny mirrors, clean sheets and vacuum lines are a few of my favorite things.
Ha! Maybe you're weird like me.
Happy Friday!(I know... Yucky iPhone pictures. Just read this post on your phone and they will look crystal clear. Ha!)
