Today is the day to rest and get ready for another busy week. Go over the list above and work on things you really didn't have time to do during the week. I still have 4 sets of windows to clean and I'm going to wipe down my bathroom-(darn kids). Then sit down with a good book and a glass of wine and know you are going to be ready for Thanksgiving. Now you can understand why I call my book The Joy of Green Cleaning- I didn't say it was totally fun, but once you get a system, you can feel a lot better about "keeping your home". That's why we call it homekeeping.
