a fullfilling day

I went to work this morning, but when we got there, the conveyor lines were not running, and obviously wouldn't be for some time.  So they gave the processors (that includes me) the option of coming back home.  Most of us did, since we'd probably have swept floors all day if we'd stayed.  It's OK, since Monday is the day I've chosen to "bless my house" as the Flylady calls it.  That's just a general vacuuming, dusting, washing rugs, etc. of the whole house so it "hugs" you when you walk in.  Cliff is very impressed.  I'm still working on uncluttering the upstairs, but I jumped into the zone for today... the bedroom.  I may not get to everything, if I work the rest of the week; but at least I've started "flying"! 

The two horses are best of buddies, with no fighting at all.  If I take one out of the pen, the other goes nuts wanting to be with him.  These boys were meant to be together, I believe... just like my dog Mandy and her hound-dog friend from next door, Buddy.  I've tried to take pictures of the two dogs playing, but they move so fast it's impossible.  Below is about the best I've been able to do:  The kids who own Buddy leave toys outside, and he brings them over here so he and Mandy can tear them up all over our yard.  Here they have a doll Buddy stole from his owners.

I love the saying 'bless your house'  !  I too am trying out Fly Lady's plan.  I have sooo much clutter and find myself being very lazy as I'm here by myself. I thought it might encourage me to get something done !   Nice you had an unexpected day off !  'On Ya'  - ma

Glad to hear the you started "blessing your house" today. I was worried that you just went home to play with your horses..LOL. By the way,  I think that the conveyor's started working by 7:30 but not real sure and not a clue if you had any work.

Hey, those aren't *HER* horses!  Just kidding.  I wanna see my horse!  Friday is too far away!

I visit the fly lady website about 3 times a year, to get my encouragement lifted and get some reminders.  It helps me a lot.  For example, when I'm just pooped out and discouraged over the house "getting away from me", I can just take the baby steps of setting the timer and slowly getting things done.  Then I'm flying again.  

I guess my house gets blessed every Saturday morning.  The house and I "bond" once again.  I miss this time when I don't have it!  LOL! And it (the house) misses me - it's easy to tell.
