Brightening Up Daily Chores

Laundry ~ it's one of those things I'm not fond of, but always seem to find myself doing...

After I finally felt human again following my flu episode, I decided that it was time to decontaminate the linens and all of our clothes. I had started the least fun part of laundry ~ folding ~ when the phone rang. I returned to the basket to find the previously folded load of clothes strewn about the floor and this adorable package in the basket instead...


Little imp! Oh well, at least it was only one load on the floor! I just continued folding clothes and stacking them on the couch while being totally entertained by the basket party happening next to me.

Oh, and ladies you can all be jealous! Today when I got home from preschool my darling husband had steam-cleaned the carpet in the living room, loaded and run the dishwasher, washed a load of Kylie's clothes, and had flowers on the counter. I asked him what was up and he said simply, "You've been really tired since you've been sick, I just wanted to be helpful." Love that man of mine!!!

I love that man of your as well! Oh, to be able to make such fun out of ordinary things - a laundry basket seems to have become a house for Kylie to have a party with her friends! What wonders we keep seeing through her little eyes!
