I might end up moving my sewing tips to another day in the week. It's below this post if ya wanna check it out. Boohoo, no visitors yesterday. I guess you were all out enjoying the beautiful spring weather!
Yesterday, my husband gave me a rare compliment on my housework. It's not that we don't compliment each other on chores, it's just that we sort of take it for granted. But I had the house (esp. the living room) particularly clean. I figured out the difference. Instead of taking one task such as "pick up trash" and moving all around the house doing it, I concentrated on one area at a time. I have a little tray table next to my chair and it was full of papers, trash, etc. I stuck with it, right down to wiping it clean, until I was done. Same with the coffee table and a few other places. Instead of work spread out that is hardly noticeable, each area really stood out!
So I'm redoing my ta-da lists. If you're one of my rare frequent flyers, you know I love that site. "My Ta-Da Lists" lets you make up your own lists, any length, any kind, for free. I have lists for most of my rooms, broken up into many little jobs. Now I'm changing over so that the lists direct me to work on one area at a time until finished.
It's a trick of the eye. You know how much cleaner your bedroom looks even if all you do is make the bed--a large, clean surface attracts you more than little bits of cleaning here and there.
Much as I believe down time can be found time, and in multi-tasking, I am also coming to realize that when you concentrate on one job, you do it better.
Hope everyone has a nice Sunday! I've got yellow daffodils, purple crocuses and these cute little purple flowers called "Glory of the Snow" coloring my yard!
