I try to keep my home clean, but boy do I have a mess in the cabinets. I thank God for all he has provided for us. This is why I need a cleaning plan, I can surface clean just fine but with working full time, and the farm sometimes I just can't keep up with the rest. I could blame it on my age, but then I'm only 53 I should be able to keep up...I've been looking at fly ladies page, to get ideas.
I sure hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Does anyone have a home binder and use it ? I need to get a plan in place to help out here on the farm. By next year the farm will be making us a little money I hope, so i need a working plan to keep things straight. I've see a lot on the web but was wondering.

It is such a wonderful day. So pretty outside, getting ready to go for a cycle ride, then back to get the raised beds finished for winter. I love fall, picking up walnuts, and hickory nuts for the new years baking, the changing leaves, but most of all the warmth of the wood stove and cuddling, hee hee that winter brings when hubby can't be outside as much.....lol. I'm going to study beekeeping as much as I can i want a hive come spring if i am ready. The new chicks will arrive this spring also, 50 little ones... slowly getting the farm to where it will be able to feed us...12 egg layers , pecan,walnut, and hickory nut trees, blackberries,cattle, garden, persimmon and cherry trees, strawberries and soon apples. I want so bad to be able to feed the family off the farm..............it's coming soon !!! Have a wonderful day !!!

As the leaves change, and thoughts turn to winter coming and what I can do to make my home warm and inviting to the most important people in my life. My family...................I want my husband to enjoy being home, our daughter to love having her friends over and at the end of my work day, feel good about what i have done. It is time to bring out the soft blanket to lay on the couch and the pillows to cuddle up with to watch TV. In the summer we are outside most the time but come winter, family movies. The candles ready and lantern lights ready for snow power outages. The freezer ready for late winter pies and stews. I so love fall and winter.
