Tackle it Tuesday *cleaning the wood floor


With a renewed energy that is still baffling the floors had just left me working on them. 
Just could not stand it another moment.
It was not hard today very easy.
Moving the sofas showed how very much my house missed me
The smaller dust mop is for the dry sweep. It also has a pad for washing.
The washing of the floor is done with the wide sweeper.
The pad is held on by velcro.
When soiled it comes right of and rinses out with water.
Water is all I use on these floors.
The smaller dust mop folds and the pad comes off for laundry.
It has 2 pads for dust mopping (this is a large house) and one to wash small spaces like the bathrooms.
Grab your chin...yes it really was this bad.
Oh what a difference this health is bringing to me and to my home.
Once the sofas cleaned an under them it was the kids set to task.
Yes I am learning to delegate and give them some opportunity to learn.
So Dove goes out to fill the blue pool for the dog and I see her fully dressed with long pants and a very nice shirt get into the pool and "slip" :) ya on purpose into the pool fracturing the sides of it. 
Daddy man epoxied it last night. 
Well so much for the pool.
It is so hard to maintain anger at these times. Having a special needs kid leaves questions like
"really? she did that and then tries to hide the act"
she chose to do it
Oh parenting, all of the laundry was done for  only 15 minutes!
Now dog jeans and a shirt and a special hand was for her b*a.!

The freshly mopped floor? 
The garage was opened up and she removed the wet things in there.
The floor had not even dried yet! 
I had to re-mop  it!

Good thing it was easy to do. 
I did get in a huff over it. 
Dash had unplugged the vacuum I was using and plugged his in 
and I over reacted.
Anger got the better of me when he walked in and announced
"I'm hungry and ready for lunch!"

"oh well that's nice... do you just want to snap your fingers then or perhaps ask nicely with a please added in there."

Deep breadth and here I bow to balance eating crow for the anger and dispensing of the anger.
Dash coming to me to apologize helped.
Dove came to apologize that helped even more.
lunch time

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • "HOME IS WHERE YOUR STORY BEGINS"
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
