“It's sad if people think that's (homemaking) a dull existance, [but] you can't just buy an apartment and furnish it and walk away. It's the flowers you choose, the music you play, the smile you have waiting. I want it to be gay and cheerful, a haven in this troubled world. I don't want my husband and children to come home and find a rattled woman. Our era is already rattled enough, isn't it?”
We had a wonderful four day holiday together with lots of good food, family time, naps and birthday cake. And now, as Alfred returns to work, I will begin dusting off my rusty homemaking skills now that I'm a full time housewife.
And it feels wonderful!
With my meals planned out for the week and the grocery shopping done, I am free to declutter, clean, and reorganize to my heart's content. I also plan get some baking done.
You will never hear me say I am bored at home. There is always something to do. This is where my creativity comes into use. This is where I am most appreciated.
Home is where I shine the brightest.
