On Tuesday before we left for our 4th of July picnic, I spent five minutes tidying up the "hot spots" in the entry and dining room. These two rooms are usually kept up because they are the rooms that are seen upon entering the front door and back door. This was a pretty easy task! In the dining room I replaced the seat cusions that had been removed by the children at breakfast. This is usually part of their morning chores, but I did it for them so that everyone would be ready to hit the road in a timely manner. I swept the entry and watered the plants, and I was done!
