Spring is popping up all over. Today our tulips opened. It's a glorious sight.
Miss Daily, (my little puppet helper), and I, went to school this morning and taught kindergarten.
She is such a big help to me. I love her because the children think she's real. They get excited whenever I bring her to school. Best of all they obey her.
Tomorrow is my spring cleaning day. Here's the way I like to mop. I use hot water from my deep sink in the laundry room, and squeeze the mop really well. I spray the floor with diluted wood floor soap and damp mop the flooor.
I use old towels to dry the floor. Water is a wood floor's enemy, so I do my best to keep them dry.
I think this lady is taking her spring cleaning too far. I want my house to be clean, but not to this extreme. There is a verse in the Bible found in Proverbs 31 that states that the lady in the story had servants to help her with all her cooking and cleaning. I used to feel sorry for myself because I didn't have servants like she did. Laine from Laine's Letters pointed out that we do have servants. We have automatic dishwashers, hot and cold water from the faucet, bread machines, washer and dryer for the clothes, and ovens that turn on in a second. I have so many automatic gadgets to make my job easier. I should be thanking God for them. Not complaining. Okay so I'm gonna start whistling while I work. I'll let you know if the birds and mice begin helping me like they did Snow White. None the less I'm sure the work will go much faster if I whistle, and I'm sure I'll crack a smile, even though there is weeding to do too.
"Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men." Colossians 3:23
