Early Morning Housekeeping

Roses




As the sun rises in the morning, the house is quiet and peaceful. I love to make some tea, turn on a lamp and settle in my favorite chair to read for a bit. . . This is like taking a break before any work is done.  It is a rich feeling.

Soon enough, it is time to sweep and wash and do laundry. It is time to make food and welcome the family to a new day.

I listen to the quiet sound of classical music. It helps provide some culture in our home and keeps my mood serene. 

My morning routine includes:

1. Fixing my hair and putting on a pretty apron.
2. Washing dishes.
3. Putting the "parlour" in order.
4. Polishing the stove.
5. Sipping on hot tea from a pretty cup.
6. Starting the laundry.

Once these things are finished, I do my Bible study, while sitting by the window.

Starting the day with a positive housekeeping attitude makes it more enjoyable. It is like an act of artistic, creativity. 

Blessings
Mrs. White

I love that...I am trying to aim for getting to bed earlier so I can get up earlier and peacefully before the family. You are an encouragement and a blessing to me :)

What a lovely post! I think having a routine must be much more relaxing than running about like a crazy person every morning!

Love your morning routine :-) I think I should try to have a "break" before starting the rush of the day, too, sounds like a lovely way to start a morning!

Your morning routine sounds quite nice. As Mrs. Stam stated, having a "break" before the busy days starts sounds like a good idea. :)

It's so true that the morning can set the tone for the entire day. Thank you for the good thoughts to ponder!

Morning is my time to get housework done too. I get up early and spend a little time with my husband before he goes to work, then everyday housework and then quiet time with God. Once I get home from work in the evenings it' too hard to motivate myself to do more work when I could be spending time with my hubby!
