Back-on-Track Challenge, Day 9

Here's how things went yesterday:

* Health & energy -- kept up with the Body Clutter Investigator, ate well, didn't drink quite enough water, got 25g fiber, exercised, and got 6.5 hours sleep. Had company for supper, so did eat dessert. But it was a low-fat dessert!

* Devotional life -- continued my study of Psalms; worked on memorizing 2 Peter 1:5-7. Had a wonderful quiet time of reading the Bible and praying.

* Homemaking -- made a schedule for my day. Dusted the downstairs rooms and did more of the weekly home blessing. Planned and carried out a schedule for preparing a company meal with some complicated logistics.

* Creativity -- Made a homemade refill for a swiffer duster. Did some cross-stitch on a Christmas ornament. .

So that was day 9 of my challenge. I'm quite pleased with how things went, and am especially encouraged with how the Lord helped me plan my day. I was also encouraged with making that duster refill. I love how the swiffer dusters work, but I refuse to pay the price for the refills.

How about you? If you're taking part in this challenge with me, share your thoughts in the comments!


  1. OK, you need to tell me how to make a homemade swiffer. I use those all the time... or an old feather duster I have that keeps losing its feather... kinda defeats the purpose!

    Have a great day!!!

  2. Sounds great...and yes...swiffer refill tutorial please!


  3. Hi ladies,

    I posted the link to the tutorial in a separate post this morning. It's very easy to do. Not as fluffy as the ones you buy (at least my prototype one wasn't) but it does work very well and the price is right!

    God bless,
