15 Minutes

Before at 10:29am
One of my favorite sites is Flylady.net. One of her premises is that you can do anything in 15 minutes. So, I took on that challenge. To the left is my before taken at 10:29am this morning. 

I set my timer and set out on my journey. First, emptying left over drink cups and throwing them away, filling the sink to wash dishes, sorting through mail and throwing out what was junk or trash and
putting the stuff to pay and keep in their rightful places. I put away food left on the counter, threw away empty cartons and stuff that just plain needed to go. I put my Bible on my bedside table, put away my candles and teapot. Did my dishes and placed them in the space saving dish drainer that I've written about before. I emptied the coffee post and wiped down the counters.

After at 10:45am
So, what was the end result? To the right is the photo I took at 10:45am this morning. I think I did pretty well. 

So, here is my encouragement to you: set that timer for 15 minutes and see what you can do in what may seem like just a short amount of time. Let me know how that turns out for you.
