Detail Dust the Living Room – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool
Today let’s detail dust the living room. This is a little different from our Weekly Home Blessing dusting. We are going to move things around and detail dust. If you have blinds, dust them, too. If you have bookcases or curio cabinets, dust them, too. This is your chance to get detailed, but you only have 15 minutes. Don’t pull everything off at one time. Work you way around the room. If you run out of time, you can continue this on another day. Turn on some music and shake those feather dusters.

Have a wonderful day!


Zone Mission: Detail dust the living room

Weekly Home Blessings of the Day: Quick Dust and Vacuum

Menu Plan for Tuesday: Taco Tuesday and Salad

Detail Dust the Living Room – Getting Organized — 2 Comments

  1. I did it! I detailed dusting of our living room. I felt good about it right then. And not just 1 hour later my oldest son and a friend stopped by without notice. Just before they left, the friend asked to use the bathroom. (There is one) I said of course (but I didn’t know exactly what condition it was in). After they left, I looked around and saw that it was in good shape and company ready because I have been using Friday as my day to keep up with the bathroom cleaning, Monday to empty out trash, and swish and swipe. I am flying today. God bless you.
