Monday first day of the week......

My friend Katy over at the country blossom blog posted recently about her planner and though I don't have a planner like hers I do have chore lists. I have spent all this morning and part of the afternoon, okay it was basically all day going over my lists and redoing them. I finally have them the way I want them but they are in my computer so I still need to print them out. I have also started following Flylady again, I don't care for all the emails but I do like the way it is set up on facebook. 
I have also taken some advice of Katys I got from a letter she sent me and today earlier I went to a local gym to see the details for joining. I am going to give it a whirl and pray a whole lot that I enjoy it so I won't be blowing our money.  I really liked the place it was suprisingly cool and not too smelly. They have lots of equipment and the nice lady who gave me a tour was really nice and not judgemental at all. I would like to go there just for the treadmill but may go try some of the other things. We will have to see.
Roger and I are trying to plan a vacation for this upcoming September. Sometimes I feel like there is just too much to do to get ready. We are taking the dogs with us and oh that will be it's own type of fun!!
Today is Monday and before I used to clean the living room on Mondays but I have changed so now today is the bathroom cleaning day. It's kind of nice doing it first day of the week just to get it out of the way.
I have gone to the library, post office, gym, walmart and came home. Been home since about 12:30 and now it's after 3pm its getting hot outside so I may need to put the AC on. It's only supposed to be around 95 today so no more100+ days for this week at least that's what the weatherman tells us.

I will stop writing now so I can go get something else accomplished. have a great week ahead.
Blessings, JoAnn

A regular ordinary Tuesday here in California

Today is Tuesday. There is nothing too special about today its and ordinary day around our home. The doggies are snuggled on the bed and I am trying to joyfully keep my home.
The temperature is supposed to get to around 107' yes you read that right kind of hot isn't it ? Tomorrow it is supposed to be hotter can that be 107' seems pretty hot to me, anyway I have the AC on and I'm not going outside if I don't have to. I do however need to keep my eyes on the dogs when I let them out. I don't want them out too long in this heat.
My homekeeping, well that is a whole dreadful story all it's own. Right now the keeping of  my home isnt' going that well. I guess I am the problem ! There have been many things that I think have attributed to my lack of homekeeping but really in the end it is my own fault. In order to be a good homekeeper I need to do things daily in my home to make is an enjoyable place for my husband to come home to. I want to do my daily chores joyfully as unto the Lord. It is very hard for me to remember this. I am thinking of putting a reminder of this on my refrigerator so I will see it every time I walk in to the kitchen.
This past week we well I should say Roger has been working very hard on turning our old master bathroom. We are turning it in to a closet. We went to the closet place and they came out and measured everything and we have a tentative date for the install. We also went to home depot to order our carpet and are hoping it gets here in time for the closet people to come and install our new closet system. I am very excited about it and can't wait though I have to. I will post pictures of it after it's all done as right now it's not that impressive looking.  .
