This is such a cozy time of year. The landscape in Vermont is completely white. We often see thick snowflakes gently falling to the ground. It is like a Norman Rockwell painting.
I am indoors this early morning, planning my housekeeping. I will do dishes, wash the kitchen floor and vacuum. Before I start working, I will open the blinds, and turn on a dim lamp. I will be able to see the sun rise while I work.
Homemakers often do a lot of extra baking in the winter. This warms up the house and delights the family with fresh treats. I will bake muffins and brownies today.
I have laundry to do, and some organizing. I will put the wet laundry on a wooden rack, to dry near the heater. Then I will have some hot tea in a pretty cup, and sit by the hearth for a little time of rest.
We will have a nice lunch this afternoon. I plan to make a pasta dish with garlic bread and salad. Then I will enjoy some reading, and perhaps a little television, before it is time to begin the evening meal.
May your Winter Homemaking create lovely memories for your family.
