I do love the routine of Saturday mornings and cleaning. It gets us ready for a quiet Sabbath and a fresh, new week. I also love that cleaning is a change of pace from thinking, grading, and writing. It's a different kind of work. When the whole house is finally clean, we settle in to enjoy the new week. We've dusted, shined things with vinegar water, vacuumed, scrubbed, and organized.
And we'll do it again next week. In the meantime, it feels so good to have a clean little house.
