10 Daily Habits - 10 on the 10th

I'm linking up with sweet Erin today for her 10 on the 10th link up.  July's is
10 daily habits.  Well, since I'm such a creature of habit, I had to link up this month.

1 - My first daily habit is heading straight to the coffee pot once my feet hit the floor, around 5:30AM.   I can't imagine imagine starting my day without a cup of coffee.

2 - With coffee in hand I go to spend some time in the Word and in prayer. I struggle at times to make sure that, even though this has been a habit of mine for years and years, that it is more than a habit. I want it to be a special time for me and the Lord to begin my days.

3 - I am then off to shower, do my makeup, grab another cup of java and then make the bed and tidy up our bedroom.

4 - Normally, it is my habit to go and get on the glider for 30 minutes and enjoy a Hallmark movie while doing so.  But, right now, while my eyes are healing that isn't allowed, but I'm hopeful after Aug. 5th to be "back at it."

5 - I then get dressed for the day and depending on what my plans are as to what I wear.  But, it's my pretty much my habit to wear earrings, necklace and bracelet with whatever I wear.  I do love accessorizing. ~chuckle~

6 - I have a habit of making a list for any errands I need to do each day and shortly after dressing I'm usually off to get started on those.  I like to get errands done early in the day. And, 4-5 afternoons a week I go and spend some time with my sweet Daddy.

7- I stop by my desktop computer 2-3 times in the morning and another 2-3 times in the afternoon.  Those stops include checking my email, scanning through Facebook and doing any needed Quickbooks work.

8 -   I take a sweep by the laundry room to see if there is any that needs to be done.  I do not generally do laundry every day.  It's just the two of us, so I probably do laundry 3-4 times a week.

9 - I always think about what we'll do or what we'll have for dinner early in the day.  If we're going to actually have a meal then I want to take the meat out of the freezer in the morning and sort of think through what we'll have with it.  But, least you think this is a daily habit, let me tell you that 2-3 times a week we enjoy a sandwich and chips while watching the news in our comfy  chairs. Ah, we earned this right and we enjoy it. ~chuckle~

10 - If we have no plans after our dinner then I change into what I call my lounging clothes, settle back into my comfy chair, play on my laptop, watch a little TV, head to do the face washing and skin care routine and eventually off to bed so I can get up and do it all over again. ~smile~

So, in my last 2 posts you have learned even more about me, be that good or bad. ~smile~

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Lounging clothes are the BEST!! Happy Monday beautiful!

  2. Ha! I like to accessorize, too, no matter what I'm wearing! I feel naked without my watch and bracelets!!

  3. You are so organized but I did know that about you. Watching a Hallmark movie while exercising is a great idea. I've never been in the habit of having coffee or tea in the morning. Most days I never have any at all and now I'm only allowed decaf. I usually do laundry one day a week and I never watch the news.

  4. I USED to like to accessorize too, but not anymore, lol. I USED to put on my make-up every day as well. But these days, I only put it on if I am leaving the house which is just not everyday..more like a couple times a week (now this does not include week-ends...hubby is home on week-ends, and we are usually on something and then it goes on right after my shower) Morning time prayer and time in the Word is ALWAYS a good start to the day though. I wash our towels every other day, but other then that laundry is only done once a week. Sheets and I rotate rugs are done every other. When I think of the days of laundry for 4 kids, goodness I feel like I barely even do it these days, lol. Have a good week Lea!

  5. haha, I love the we earned the right to do it, and we do, I am so going to use this :) What?! No Hallmark movies that needs to get fixed fast :) Those are my favorite.

  6. Starting the day off with coffee, in the Word and prayer -- I'm right there with you.

  7. Love love love your daily habits and I smiled at your "chuckle" notes. I totally want to come over and watch Hallmark movies with you and enjoy a sandwich by the tv! You have earned the right and I hope to someday too - chuckle ;). So glad we connected! I will continue to pray for your eyes to heal in good time! xoxo ERIN

  8. I love to get into my "comfy's" once dinner is cleaned up and we are home to stay. I love that you stay active on your glider. I have a stationary bike that I'm not very good at remembering to ride... someday hopefully.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
