Making your home a haven ~ Friday Edition

In our Making our Home a Haven today the challenge is to reach out and share it with others. Here are some of my ideas to work on that today:

~Writing some more letters to try to encourage.

~We have invited a couple of international students over for supper.

~We are hoping to make some homemade presents for some other new babies.

And this evening I have planned to go to a scrapbooking event with an international student and another friend. I am praying we have some fun and edifying conversation while working on pictures together and sharing about our families.

Other things on my list today are:

  • Organize and clean the boy's room. We plan on going through toys and clothes to see if we can downsize and give some away.
  • List a thing or two on Freecycle.
  • Calling a friend.
  • School of course. :-)
  • Dusting and washing pictures and mirrors.
  • Cleaning the Master Bathroom.

And now I am off to get busy!!

Hi Abbi. It sounds like you will have a great day of sharing and caring for family and friends. My day started with helping my mom, who has recently broken her foot, clean out a storage room and her kitchen cabinets. I e-mailed a very ill friend, wanting to cheer him up and now I'm about to start dinner for mom and me tonight. Have a wonderful weekend. Take care.

You sure had a lot to do today--hope you accomplished most (if not all) of it!
My big achievement this week was to haul off two bags of stuff from the attic to the Salvation Army store. And I actually managed to only bring back two things I bought--one is a Rudolph video and one is a nice metal box I'll use for a gift package. Trading roughly 20 items for 2 is a pretty good way to make my home a haven...even if it is from the attic, LOL!

Sounds like you had a very busy day. I've been doing a lot of cleaning and sorting of things to get things in order before my surgery. I really enjoy your blog.

Thanks everybody for commenting! We did have a busy day and didn't get quite everything done but we did do most of it. I didn't take many pictures though and then didn't make it back on to report. :-)
It sounds like you all have been busy as well!
