Homemaker Challenge 6

Please enjoy listening while you go about your home keeping today.

The video ends rather abruptly. We are fixing that problem soon!

Today's Challenges: 
Find a sit-in-a-chair exercise and follow as best you can.
Make a list and do everything on it.
Clean out something you use every day, such as your personal care container.
Read something aloud.

Very fine weather today.

By now you should be able to make your own homemaking challenge for one day.

This bright moonlight made a nice glow on the road.

The clothing I wore in the video:

This was an outfit I bought 20 years ago, natural fibers, very comfortable. It was used as semi formal wear back in the day, but it works well for the home.

Home Challenge #5

Today is the 5th homemaker challenge, and I hope you will make up your own challenges and try to follow them. 


Challenge #5:

Exercise 5 minutes--find a video on YouTube that suits you. I use Fabulous 50's.

Personal care and preparation before beginning the many duties at home.

Create a master list.

Do your daily work (the things most urgent) and add one thing from your master list. 

Put something away that you have been neglecting.

Reduce Anxiety before bed:  Stretch exercise before bed . a relaxing bath, something good to read, 
or a pleasant movie after retiring.

Remember, as I said in the video:  Do not allow your mind to shut down.
Do not allow your muscles to shut down. Do not allow your creativity to shut down.

Here are some videos I like to watch when I have time:

The Princess Home - Soothing and Inspiring
Painting - Sometimes just watching these are relaxing but I hope to actually do one of the paintings soon. 
Living in a Ghost Town - Young man rebuilds an abandoned town
Weather and Climate Sounds -  "The Relaxed Guy" records Rainforests, beaches, rivers, meadows, etc. I listen to them when I have to be indoors doing slow, tedious type work. 

These are the books I read from in the video:

Don't rush to judgement and say it is impossible, because you could do one of each! Look around on her site for 5 minute easy, beginner workout routines.

Beautiful Days

This is the yard on the south corner of The Manse, which is recovering nicely from the smoke and fires. God sent rain in abundance and the land is looking good.

Eventually I want to make a video tour of The Manse and the surroundings. Also I am gathering my notes for another radio talk so you can get your kitchen cleaned up without knowing it 

Right now I will share a photo or two
Crafty pumpkins 

I hope to talk with you soon.
