Lenten Cleaning...

I try to deep clean our home as much as I am able during the weeks when we fast. I find that it is really wonderful to enjoy having everything clean and organized for the Great Feasts of the year.  For the Nativity Fast (which began on November 15th) I have made a master list of all the things that I want to accomplish before Christmas (with nothing scheduled Saturdays or Sundays).  With one task planned for each day, getting everything tidy should be pretty easy to handle.   Here's my list:

I love your little Nativity set. I've been looking for something "just right" for our home, but there are so few sets out there anymore it seems. Also, I like your list of goals. Wish I could get motivated to do the same!
