103. Systematic Housekeeping

A friend of mine who has a six-room
apartment delights in taking care of it in sections, one room a day. On

each of the six days in the week one room is thoroughly cleaned and put in

order. She plans, if possible, to add some little touch of adornment, a

new rocker, or vase, or table cover, or pincushion. In this way there is

always something new to notice and admire, and yet no new and startling

changes and never any accumulation of hard work.
