Company Girl Coffee

Thanks for stopping by!  I feel like all week I have been running late, so this is even being posted a little later than usual.

It is early afternoon and I just came from lunch with a friend, and I am having a handful of trail mix.  Well, to be accurate, I am picking out my favorite things from a bag of trail mix.  So I'm eating cashews and peanuts, but no M&Ms or raisins.  My husband always wonders where the cashews go.  Hehehe

It's been a crazy week with my 9th grade daughters working hard to finish a huge science project that is due tonight.  It will consume the rest of my day, hence taking the time for virtual coffee and cashews.  In spite of that, I managed to keep up with Home Sanctuary.  I have noticed that with each "small thing" I participate in, I find myself looking around and taking it a step further.  The task of sweeping baseboards soon had me using an electric broom on all the floors, then a quick mop job.  Not only did it get me up and moving (when did I become so out of shape?), but my floors got the cleaning they needed.  After following the challenges diligently all month, I can say that there is a difference in our home and in my attitude toward keeping up with things.

Prayer requests today:  B., stroke victim whose health is declining; the family of Ella, a toddler who died as the result of an accident this week.

In the meantime, have a great weekend.

Blessings,

Cheryl

Wow, you did go a step further. I didn't get to the base boards. After cleaning...uh, scrubbing my bathroom floor...I was pretty done for. Glad you were so motivated though!

Oh, the science projects! This week has been a major homework/hockey/golf/school week...so exhausting! (For my son, too :) I mostly just stay up late with him and keep him motivated with snacks and pep talks and stuff like glue and scissors.

I tend to eat more, late at night, so that's not good.

I love when the small things take on a life of their own! I also remember how little time some past small things took....therefore they are easy to repeat when needed. I never knew how easy cleaning a microwave was, but now I've done it several times. I did not get as far as using an electric broom on all my floors, but I'll bet that felt great.

I'll take the M&M's you don't eat!

Hmm...I go straight for the chocolate in trail mix! I like cashews though, too. I managed to do every small thing this month in one form or another. I love how they get me moving and once that happens I make progress from there. :)

Have a great weekend!

Now I want some cashews. haha I'll have to go over to my parents' because they always have some. I hear that school projects demand a lot of time nowadays. It hasn't been that long since I've been out of high school, but sometimes I wonder if it's just too much, and if it's necessary. I'm glad you got through your Small Things. It does make a difference. Great job!
