Slowly, I feel my homemaking spirit being revived. The ten months I worked outside the home did a number on me, but I now find myself once again longing for simpler, gentle life.
Though we live in town, there is much I can do to make my ideal a reality. We have nearly an acre of land. I want to put in a garden this year. I want a clothesline to line-dry our laundry.
I want to get back to making most of our foods and snacks from scratch and to try new recipes, like homemade granola bars and 5 minute artisian bread. How lovely it would be to make homemade jam!
I want to go for a stroll with my husband or for a country drive. Get back to cross-stitching and embroidery handiwork. Work on puzzles, play board games with the kids, go on picnics in scenic places, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
What is your ideal of simple living?
