Home Keeping: Daily Work
Every home has its daily work.
At our home, we don't have a certain day we do certain chores. We do a bit of everything everyday.
Laundry is everyday work here. Dishes are too. Cooking, yep. Animal care, yes.
We also do our schooling at home, so we have the daily work of math, history, science, reading, music etc…
It just seems to flow - most days without too much chaos, but other days it's very chaotic. It is just life here at our cottage.
With switching the bedrooms around, I have added the extra work of sorting through years of accumulation and deciding which things must stay and which are able to be passed on. Old sheets and old clothes are becoming rags, furniture is being arranged. I like this kind of work. It is work to go through your things and decide if you really love something, and if you are keeping it because it is a special family item, or if this thing can go and be a treasure in someone else's life.
Yesterday generated 2 more bags for Goodwill, a few pictures to my parents house that I no longer was ever going to hang here in my house.
I am excited by the possibilities of the great space in my new bedroom.
Little by little it is all being accomplished. Daily work helps us to keep our home tidy, our clothes clean and put away, and it helps us to be ready to welcome guests without us rushing crazily about to prepare.
What kind of daily work do you do?
