I’ve been doing my annual purge of our file cabinets, not one of my favorite things to do, but when my dear husband decided to paint my little office work space and put up a new light fixture it encouraged me to keep going and get with my new neater look.
I’ve filled two grocery bags with paper to recycle, two tall kitchen can sized garbage bags with shredded papers and one bag to take to take to Savers. I even bought a new desk chair and scavenged a lamp that wasn’t being used from another desk. I have a picture I will have Dan hang above my desk tonight.
This was one of the projects we had decided to do during our planning time in January. It always blesses me when Dan jumps right into projects we’ve talked about. The girls will have him do some painting in their room too and they will do some much needed organizing too. We do consider this school since we hope our daughters will be caring for their own homes someday and the skills they learn here will serve them well when that happens. A lifestyle of learning turns everyday things into learning experiences.
I didn’t get a good before photo, but take my word, there was a mess. I had piles all over my desk and there was no breathing room on any of my shelves.
I’m hoping to attack my bedroom drawers before I totally run out of inspiration.
So instead of writing something today I’m going to share two posts I saw this week that really encouraged me.
The first is a video of a Super Bowl ad. I was raised on subsistence farming and farmers have a special place in my heart.
So God Made a Farmer
