Every Day



I do just about the same things every day, and I love that kind of life. I cook breakfast (see the lovely dishes that were my Christmas gift from the Composer!), I clean my house, I teach my children, I make a few work phone calls, rearrange tabletops, knit a little, cut out a flannel nightgown, cook dinner, think about menus, put on and take off my apron a hundred times, read to Daisy, go for a walk. That's a nice life. I love that life!

Your husband is a VERY smart man. My mother-in-law had her heart set on some pretty blue dishes one year. Instead my father-in-law bought her the worst looking brown dishes. He didn't think dishes mattered. She had to look at those ugly dishes at every meal until the day she passed away. Isn't that so sad?

Yes...you have chosen the good life. My daughter keeps up as an interior designer by designing kitchens for friends once in awhile (kitchens were her speciality when she got her degree at Purdue).

I have uh...bookmarked the site with those dishes. :)

This really is the good life we live, isn't it? The dishes are BEE-A-UUU-TEEFUL!

You are one very lucky person. You have found joy, peace and contentment in your life. What more can anyone ask for.

I think anyone who is at home with their children and have a roof over their heads can be content and definately blessed. I would appreciate it if you could tell us more about your daily life - i.e. how do you accomplish so much??? Are you all on a schedule, do your kids study on their own for the majority of time, do they help you with the house, etc. Anyone who can incorporate knitting and sewing into their work day has it figured out! And by the way, I'm still inspired by the photographs of your home and would love to see more of each room to get an idea of how you decorate. Everything seems so lovely.

Simple really is better, isn't it?

If you get a chance I would like to know the simple pleasures of your homeschool day. I know you are a protegy child (from a previous post--I have been reading for over a year now) and would love to know your philosophy.
