Today I start the year out by cleaning my house and catching up on laundry. Tobin works today and I have just too many undone things around here to just do nothing.
I am eager to get back to homeschooling and back to normal life. I have lots of soap that I want to make, and aprons to sew and menus to plan, and organizing to do. There is something refreshing about a new year, a new start. I am not one who really likes resolutions but I do like to look at the year ahead and make some goals and see what areas I can improve on.
Another one of my goals this year is to read the whole Bible. I have done this many times over the years but have not done it in the last couple of years. I like those Ã‚â€œOne Year BiblesÃ‚â€. They have a little Old Testament, a little New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs to read each day. I donÃ‚â€™t have to keep track of where I am, simply open the Bible with my cup of coffee each morning and read. Sounds like a great start to each day this coming year.
This is also the month where I work to get my childrenÃ‚â€™s school work to the half way point by the end of the month. We started late, had lots of days off around the holidays so we are behind a bit. But I always figure January is the perfect month to get back on track. We have these cold, short days without any big interruptions and all the kids know it is time to focus, focus on the school work!
I wish you all a blessed New Year on your homesteads!
