Monday’s Fresh Start

I have said many times I love Mondays~ a fresh week, a reset day. This week I am getting back on track (really I am)! Chore charts are back effect, schedules and routines all starting with me. The more in control and organized I am, the smoother this home will run. It is MUCH easier to get this accomplished with the hubby out hunting with our boy for the week. It has been 2 MONTHS on Saturday since I have been at work, I am looking forward to going back to the job I love and when I do I want our home to be ready for the smooth transition. There have been 6 long months of neglect have built up around here. Summer is an easy time to let things slide, enjoy the sun and do it later. If later is never planned to be dealt with, the jobs never get done. It is overwhelming on the whole… I am sure that there are troll hoarders living in my basement because I have not been down there in 3 months and it looks like a BOMB went off. (they do love their Barbies & Hunting)
Today’s tasks… personal schedule, chore charts & Octobers goal/job list. A little bit everyday, doing what I can, when I can.

My store is in God’s hands

Prayer-Hands-God-ADThis is an interesting week for us. We are still in limbo about weather or not we have a building to rent for the upcoming year and at what cost that year would be. Your prayers in regard to this matter would be greatly valued. I believe in what we do, I believe there is a great need with in the community for a place to donate to and an alternate place to shop from…. (side note: on the 15th of July we celebrated our 6th year open!)

Fridays upcycled RaNdoMnEss

I had no theme today so I went with what struck my fancy. Being able to see and think outside the box is what draws me into upcycling, a new life in something old. I love Pintrest for the creativity it shares, it is like a magazine full of ideas that never ends.
