Yesterday was a play day.
For the last several months I've been choosing a day a month to just do projects and look at ideas that I've saved and do something with them.
These days have quickly turned into some of my favorite days!
Jenni commented that I sure got a lot done in one day yesterday.
Well, one reason for that is because I let everything be sort of "on hold". I don't do laundry or do much beyond what is absolutely necessary to keep our home going and I use the day to play.
It is only one day a month after all.
Well today was no longer a play day and after being out of town then having company and also hosting a dinner party plus continuing to work on our basement remodel I had quite a few things that needed doing but I was having a hard time mustering up excitement or motivation to do them.
I decided that perhaps if I took photos and did a blogpost it might help.
And it did.
So today . . .
I got dressed including shoes, hair and make-up (thanks to all of my flywashing from Flylady over the years). I also put on the apron to help with my motivation as well and it worked too.
I enjoyed looking at all of these (and yes they're still up, are yours?)
put milk cups back in the fridge
(this is one of those things I find myself getting tired of doing but hello, is it really a big deal? no)
and ended up with this
(and then I did also put them away as well as another load later as well, yea!)
lit a candle because that always makes things feel more orderly and nice
plus David can say "candle" now and it's really cute and he liked looking at it away across the table while he colored
washed a really yucky high chair tray
(this was admittedly a staged shot after I was done)
and I didn't get the dishes completely done but my dishwasher was full and running and the rest could be left for the next load in my opinion
(have I ever shown you my mini size dishwasher before?)
and when I went to get the baking soda for soaking the drip pans I enjoyed my organized baking drawer which I had done a few weeks ago but which is still making me happy
It was a good day even if not as "fun" as yesterday.
So what did you do today?
