It is raining and pleasant this early morning. The lush Vermont landscape is inspiring. It makes one want to shut off all technology and enjoy the pleasant tasks of homemaking.
I will sweep and polish by lamplight in my old country kitchen. Our little homeschool will start in just a few minutes. While my teenage student is working on math, I will do some baking as I listen to the rain falling and the birds singing.
I will do a little laundry and delight in the folding and the sorting. It is lovely to put out fresh towels and do those little touches that make this place a home.
I will set the table for the noon meal and have it ready hours before it is needed. This will inspire me to take my time and create an atmosphere of a happy kitchen!
Perhaps I will wash the kitchen floor before enjoying an afternoon rest. I plan to drink hot tea, and read some Amish fiction before getting back to work in the cool of the day.
