Cheerful at Home

I looked outside my window and noticed it was snowing. I am so excited. I never get tired of the child-like excitement of seeing snow! I realize I live in Vermont and I have been in New England my entire life, but still, it is such a sight to see!

I have been worn out the past few days and in pain, so Amy (14) has been doing all my housework. I just looked in my kitchen and realized I have a lot of catching up to do. "Someone" just doesn't love the kitchen as much as Mama does! (smiles) But I will make it shine!

When I am sick or in pain, if I just get up and do a little bit of housework and try to be active, I get better much more quickly.

I am so excited about this coming day. Call me crazy, but I am going to vacuum and sweep and light candles and just be happy.

The other day, Mr. White was watching TV in our bedroom. When he went outside for a bit, I headed in there and made our bed, opened the shades, polished the bureau and took out the laundry. The room looked so much nicer. When he came in, I was resting comfortably with a book. I noticed him glancing around the room. He didn't say a word, but I knew he was grateful for my presence.

I am reading "These Happy Golden Years" by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I have read the book several times and always enjoy it. But I haven't read it recently. One of my TOS Crew friends mentioned it because it has some great teaching ideas in there, from the 1800's. But the story itself makes one love and appreciate home so much more! I am going to finish reading it today, during my "homemaking breaks."

I am really looking forward to 2010. I plan to buy a new oven and will be able to bake bread and cookies again. I cannot wait! I will also buy a digital camera so I can actually take pictures.

Hope you are having a wonderful day at home!

Mrs. White
