Someday 1 - 7, 2011
This week we are in Zone 4: The Master Bedroom
This month's Habit is: Swish and SwipeZone 1 Mission #1 Monday
Dear Friends:Today is the day that you will spend 15 minutes in the entrance way of your home. Grab all the mail, shoes and jackets and put them away! I am always so surprised at how much stuff seems to accumulate in that one area! This is one area that when you tackle it and you are finished that you feel such a huge accomplishment because it is what you see first as you come through the door.
Set your timer and .......... GO!Zone 1 Mission #2 Tuesday
Dear Friends:Let's have a Fire Drill on the flat surfaces of the dining room!
Do you have a hotspot in there that is burning? Get out the trash bag and an empty laundry basket. Toss the trash and put the things that need to be put away in other rooms in the laundry basket. Once you have cleared the hotspots, deliver the other items to the proper rooms.
This might take a little longer than 15 minutes if so than work for 15 minutes, take a break for 15 and go do another 15. Let's put out those fires!Zone 1 Mission #3 Wednesday
Dear Friends,Today you are to sweep your front porch area around your front door. Shake out your welcome mats and wipe down your front door. This makes a huge difference in how your home looks. We have a tendency to neglect this area and yet it is the first thing that people see when they come to your home.
Spend 15 minutes taking care of this, you will be pleased with the results!Zone 1 Mission #4 Thursday
Dear Friends,Today, let's sparkle up the Dining Room Table and Chairs. If you don't have a Dining Room set, no problem, do this mission on the kitchen table.
Set your timer for 15 minutes. Wipe down the tops, the edges, and the legs on your Dining Room Table. Give the chairs a wipe too. Don't ask us about cleaning chemicals, use whatever cleaning and polishing supplies you normally use for your furniture.
When you are done, put on a pretty table cloth, flowers from the garden, or some pretty candles. Your table will look lovely!Zone 1 Mission #5 Friday
Dear Friends:We are in the home stretch of Zone 1 and today seems like a good day to pamper ourselves by taking a 15 minute break and enjoying a cup of tea or a tall glass of something cold. Read your favorite magazine, bible, or book and just take a time out just for you.
If you don't take the time to take of you, who will?
