From "On The Banks of Plum Creek"
"After Laura and Mary had washed and wiped the dishes, swept the floor, made their bed, and dusted, they settled down with their books. But the house was so cozy and pretty that Laura kept looking up at it."
- Laura Ingalls Wilder
Human Frailty of the Godly Soul
"The life of Luther might suffice to give a thousand instances, and he was by no means of the weaker sort. His great spirit was often in the seventh heaven of exultation, and as frequently on the borders of despair. His very deathbed was not free from tempests, and he sobbed himself into his last sleep like a greatly wearied child."
"As for her, like most women, she had but one ambition. To be a good wife and a good mother, and to be beloved by her husband and children, was all she asked. [She was] a busy, affectionate, cheerful little housewife, whose voice would never be heard in the streets, but whose memory would always live in a few faithful hearts."
I am listening to classic old music while I clean my kitchen, and stare dreamily out the window. Did you ever see the Movie "Young at Heart" staring Doris Day and Frank Sinatra? This adorable 1954 movie was a remake of the classic "Four Daughters" starring John Garfield.
I love watching about home-life in those old movies. Frank's character was a guest in the home of a family of talented musicians. It made me wish we had a large piano in the parlor for our visitors to entertain us!
I have always loved Doris Day. She is such a cheerful, smiling presence in every movie!
Right now, I am getting ready to bake banana muffins while listening to Frank Sinatra serenade me. (smiles)
I love to create just the right ambiance of the Good Old Days at home!
