I’ve found keeping house one of the greatest joys of life. For as long as I can remember, I’ve delighted in making ordinary things beautiful, penciling in order where there is chaos and finding ways to make things work smoothly.
(Of course, though, there are plenty of times when I don’t want to laundry … my most detested chore)
You cannot imagine the joy I had when, after being away for several days for our honeymoon, I was able to get back into routine. The laundry pile had become a tumbling mountain on top of the washer, floors were needing vacuumed and bills asking to be paid.
Of course, when all’s done and the broom has been put back into the closet, I also enjoy the pleasantness of having an afternoon to blog, drink coffee and watch Sense and Sensibility. I keep dreaming of chocolate cake in the future, too.
What kind of woman are you? Do you enjoy keeping house? Have you discovered your favorite and least favorite task?
With love, coffee and a clean house (woot woot!),
