Middle of November


Apple Wreath Cleansing Hand Soap, at Bath and Body Works

QUICK THINGS TO DO TODAY:

  • Clean out your fruit bowl - any spoiled fruit you need to throw out? Need to put fresh fruit on your grocery shopping list?

  • Is it time to get your snow tires put on your car?

  • Do you have an ice scraper in your car?

  • Return any phone calls you may have missed over the weekend.

  • Try to clean out your email inbox (if needed) today. Answer and delete or archive emails.

  • Need to wrap and label any Christmas gifts tonight?

  • Thanksgiving is in less than two weeks. How are you doing with preparations for your meal, guests, or your own travel?

  • Do you send out Thanksgiving cards? I have just a couple families I want to especially tell that I'm thinking about them on Thanksgiving. So I'll mail some cards off today.

  • Start thinking about making your New Year's Eve reservations. In some major cities, by now it's already too late to get a reservation at the swankiest hotels and trendiest restaurants. But you can always try!

TODAY'S PROJECT: Overall Cleaning

Today I'm doing a quick once-over on almost every room of the house. This way I can have fun going out later tonight and not worry about any housecleaning projects when I get home late.

I'll quickly vacuum both of my living rooms, put a freshly laundered tablecloth on the dining table, empty my kitchen and bathroom trash cans, declutter my mail table, do a quick mop on my kitchen floor, run around the house looking for mugs and drinking glasses, put a few dishes into the dishwasher, and make my bed. I won't have time to deal with my messy home office, so I'll just shut the door to it before I leave!

What overall housecleaning projects might you need to get done today?

LOVELY STATIONERY: Papaya Art


At more than $5 per card, I can't afford to send out these gorgeous sparkly glittery cards to every single person on my Christmas list. So I picked up just a couple of the peacock ones (my obsession over the past 3 years has been peacocks!) to send to extra special friends. I love this company's beautiful cards - and now they have matching gift bags too!
