The Evening Housework

Housewife and Mother Barbara Barkin, Washing Dishes in Her Bright New Kitchen in Built Mobile Home

The day is almost over. It is time to begin making supper. I will make beef stew in just a little while. I will also wash all the dishes, in my pretty, old kitchen.

I have a small lamp near my sage green canisters. That dim light sets a mood that makes me want to stay and work. There are a few chores I must do in the evening:

1. Clean the kitchen.
2. Tidy the living room.
3. Sweep floors.
4. Finish up the laundry.
5. Make iced tea for the night (for my teenagers).

I expect this to be all finished by 9 p.m. tonight. Then I can rest and enjoy a good book with some hot tea.

I hope you have a lovely evening!

I just love how you talk to happily about cleaning and tidying up. I appreciate how you are positive about your chores, it helps me to remember to be pleasant as I'm cleaning my own house.

Hi, I'm a new reader to your blog. This made me feel guilty, I have every thing done by 7:30 and then I sit down and put my feet up. No late night house from me !
