It’s Monday and guess what that means? That means it’s time for our weekly deep-cleaning project! Every Monday morning this year, I’ll be assigning us all a deep-cleaning project to tackle (well, that is, if want to join us!)
Today’s project is to deep clean the kitchen. Do as much as you’re able to do — whether that’s a complete deep clean or just getting the dishes down, the countertops wiped off, and the appliances wiped down.
We have a really full week this week. We’re prepping for a big filming project next week that a whole crew of people are flying in from out of town to film/produce (I can’t WAIT to share more about this course we’re designing — I think you’re going to love it!), we’re back to our normal extracurricular activities now that the snow has finally melted, we have multiple get-togethers with friends (which I’m excited about — we were cooped up at home because of the snow for almost all week last week!), Kathrynne has an all-day swim meet one day this week, there’s a film crew coming in for another short film project this week, we have a few different appointments, and I’m training my brand-new local assistant whom I just hired (She starts today — I’m so grateful to have found her!)
So needless to say, I’m making sure to streamline thing, simplify as much as possible, and keep my expectations for this week on the low side. 🙂
With this in mind, I got an early start on today’s project and did some of it this weekend. 🙂 I already cleaned out the fridge and microwave and swept the floor. So this morning, I just need to do the dishes, wipe down the outside of the cupboards, and wipe down the countertops.
Here’s my plan for this morning:
- Exercise, shower
- Bible reading/journaling
- Breakfast/Morning Time
- Chores/quick house clean up
- Clean the kitchen — dishes, wipe down countertops, and wipe down the cupboard doors
- Get girls started on their independent work
- School with Silas
- Work on laundry for 15 minutes
- Ready to go — lunch made — head to work at our office space
This evening, I’ll share a post about how my morning well and give you an update (with pictures) on how my kitchen-cleaning project went.
