Need to knock this out really quick, I won't be able to blog for a couple of days and hate just disappearing from blog-land.

Today's BabyStep is to set an afternoon routine.  Check.  Did it a looong time ago.  Had to, or else (for me) nothing would have gotten done Weekly Home Blessing or Zone work-wise.  Since my change in hours at work those two things have since been moved to my morning routine, so my after work/afternoon routine looks like this:

It was a delightful way to spend the afternoon, and having my routines set they way they are allowed me to do so.  We were also rewarded for our efforts with hands that look like this:
