live up to my motto day

hello - you all are so sweet and kind to be concerned and offer advice about that nasty stomach bug.
Currently, to the best of my knowledge,  all my family members are virus free and no one else has gotten sick.  So,  I am cautiously optimistic that a most unpleasant situation is over~!


Monday,  I spent most of the day cleaning our home with Lysol and Bleach.  - to obliterate any lingering germs.

Today,  our home wasn't really dirty but it definitely needed some attention,  just lots of things needed put away, etc.  So I wrote out this list and got started



Before in the living room
after- toys put away, blankets straightened, some clutter cleared and the Valentine decorations all packed away  

well - there doesn't seem to be a before in the master bedroom but here is the after- bed made,  clutter dealt with, everything dusted

laundry room before- just little laundry
all laundry done and put away
kitchen- before
after- there were lots of odds and ends on every surface- all put away now!

Pantry- this wasn't on my list but it should of been.  It was messy
after an hour,  the pantry is much better and I found several things I thought we were out of. 


dining room before
dining room- midway- I had time cut out a kimono top for me from an internet tutorial.  Ill let you all know how it turns out after I sew it.  It was very fast to cut out.
I also found a square tablecloth while I was looking for fabric. 

I cut down the table cloth and made a super simple and fast table runner.  I've been wanting to do something for this table for awhile and this project was just the spruce up I was hoping for. 


That's my day.  I did some stuff and stuff got done. 

hope you all are getting stuff done that you want to do too!

  1. You're always so organized, Rhonda. Everything looks ship shape in Bristol fashion. I love the gingham and lace in your pantry.

    1. I'm not always organized Jane but I do try and I sure prefer it this way.
      I put the red check shelf liner and lace in the pantry before grands so it is at least 8 years old. It has held up really well.
      The shelf liner is the slightly textured vinyl kind.
      The lace is strips cut from the vinyl tablecloths sold by the yard in a fabric department.
      It all wipes clean ❤

      The pantry shelf decorations are not quite as old as I thought, just about 7 years, but that's still a good bit of time for it to hold up as long as it has

  12. My goodness you got a lot done. I feel like I need a nap after just reading this. ;) I am so glad you are feeling better now and I too pray no one else gets it around you.

  13. Hi Rhonda,

    Your home is beautiful and so organized. That is the way I love to live too. I am so happy that you are feeling better. I hope no one else comes down with it.

    I love you pics. I have been organizing too but at a slow pace because I tire easily. I guess I am not as young as I used to be. But it doesn't stop me.

    I am hoping to get an organizing post up with lots or pictures later today. I have been doing so much that I just fall into bed very early.
