All I wanted to do this morning was sit in my parlour chair, with a cozy afghan, and read from Dickens. We have heavy snow covering the trees and grounds of our Vermont property and I wanted a day of leisure. But this will not make my home beautiful.
Before I have my pleasant time of recreation, I will do some housekeeping. The family is still slumbering so it will be a quiet time of work.
I will sweep the floors, dust the parlour, clean the kitchen and do some laundry. I will do a few little touches that make it feel lovely when one walks into a room.
Then, and only then, will I allow my laziness to come through as I sit in my little chair and delight in an 1800's classic, English, novel by Dickens.
For Home-keeping Inspiration, order my book - For The Love of Christian Homemaking.
