I love that we are preparing to welcome a new little one into our home, and He is busy prompting me to make changes that will benefit my whole family. I am home a lot these days. Between homeschooling, a not-so-easy pregnancy, and limited finances, I have fewer commitments than in the past. Tackle It Tuesday is a way I hope to document my strides to bring glory to God through the little things -- like being grateful for my home, and keeping it well.
As a quick explanation of Tackle it Tuesday, I used to read a couple of blogs that did weekly 'Tackle-It Tuesday' posts, and I was very motivated by these moms and what they accomplished. So if you're looking for a little motivation of your own, here it is! I'd love to know what projects you are inspired to begin!
This is the buffet in our kitchen. It is also a great catch-all spot for....well, just about anything, as you can see. I have been dreading this task but decided today was the day. 45 minutes later.....
Success! Afterward, I rewarded myself with a 'fun' project -- putting all our Christmas pictures on display so we can enjoy them. A relative gave us the idea of choosing a picture each night, talking to the kiddos about who the family is and why they are special to us, and praying for them together. Now I can't wait to start!
(ps - No, I didn't also paint the wall in that 45 minutes. The change in paint color is the difference in daylight and nighttime lighting. No flash used. Crazy, huh?)
