What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

I don't know where this past week went really. I'd like to think I accomplished a lot, but I can't really name anything in particular except feed the children. do the dishes. change diapers. do laundry. homeschool. change clothes. That sort of thing.

Actually, "that sort of thing" makes a nice long list (and fills my days up very well) if I actually list it out-but that sort of list is not a very exciting one to make.

I do know every single room in this house seems to have a post-hurricane-esque feel to it. Which means, this weekend, however NOT fun it sounds, is going to be filled with cleaning and tidying-and especially-SORTING.

I don't like keeping things around just to make messes and post-holiday FLUFF always drives me crazy right around now. If it has been on the floor all week then I have a right (and daresay, RESPONSIBILITY??!?!) to toss it or set it aside for a yard sale.

I function SO much better in a tidy house.

I very much hope to squeeze in a few (winning) games of checkers, a couple quilled letters, unearthing my sewing machine, a walk or two and THE perfect Friday night: a bowl of popcorn and slightly melty ice cream after the children go to bed and the Mr. and I are snuggling on the couch watching a movie.

Any plans for your weekend?
