I was sitting in the parlour when the sun came up this morning. It was like a slow burst of gentle light through the drapes. The house is quiet and cozy.
I am sitting here planning all the lovely homemaking tasks I want to do this morning. I only wish I could wake up even earlier each day!
I will make meatloaf for the children to enjoy this afternoon. I will also bake muffins and prepare fudge. I will clean and tidy, while chatting with the children, as they go about their day.
I will play games with my darlings, at the table, and do puzzles. We will play cards and Boggle and checkers. We will sit in our favorite chairs and read books, while sipping on hot chocolate and eating freshly baked treats.
We have taken the day off from formal school to enjoy a precious, unhurried day at home. It will be an ideal day of cheerfulness at our old Vermont estate.
