My To do List for the day
2. Start this week’s laundry washing
3. Put away a basket of folded laundry from last week
4. Bake bread – rising now
5. Tidy up house – our home always seems messy after the weekend…
6. Vacuum upstairs
For laundry tips, I’m not sure I have any. Usually I do about 2 loads a day minus a couple of days in a week. I also try to have the laundry I wash, folded and put away too. It is so easy to wash and dry laundry, but folding it and putting it away is a whole nother story! So keeping up with a couple of loads a day has worked well for me, most times anyways! Now for ironing, I’m behind on that most of the time! Maybe once my girls are old enough it will be a chore for them to do and the days of being behind will be gone forever! In the summer, I just do a load or two a day, since my clothesline only holds that much! So I need to keep that going in the wintertime too, even if I do use the dryer.
Ok first update! Well, I have been able to get three loads of laundry washed, two of those are dry now and one load is tumbling around in the dryer. I have most of the laundry folded and some put away. Now I need to go and bring the next load down and set the washing machine back to work!
Update again later!! I’ll post a few pics too.
Ok, here my last update for the day. I just tucked our sleeping baby into her crib and all the others are in bed too. It was another good day here, didn’t get everything on my list done and the kitchen needs a bit of tidy up done yet too. Anyway, I thought I would first share some pictures from our Monday here.
First my boys helped me sort the laundry. This is something I do every Monday, I usually wash just a couple of loads a day, but I like to sort everything first on Monday and put each load into a basket. Then when I’m ready to wash that load all I need to do is bring it down to the laundry room.
Watching the washing machine do its job! Our new laundry maids have been fun to use! The newness hasn’t worn off yet! LOL I guess we have had them just over a month now….
Today I did a couple extra loads of laundry, which also reminds me I must throw the last load into the dryer. Please check out Crystal’s Blog for more laundry tips!!
Also I posted more pictures from today here.
Blessings to you as you continue to make your home a haven!!
