Time, at Home


Today I would very much like you to notice a new poem by Housewifely Haven blog. You can find the link on my blogroll.  Yes, the home has no schedule but we all have to guard against some of the thinking ingrained into us that we have to run the home the way Clarence Day described in his book "Life With Father." It was an era where invention and efficiency were all the rage. This was made into a movie showing the family being regulated by time schedules. The poem at Housewifely Haven is more apt for the lady at home.  Slowing down does not mean slothful, and it is best achieved by heeding the advice in some of the other posts on Housewifely Haven.  Mrs. Housewifely Haven lives in Great Britain.

Thank you for sharing this with us, Lydia. I popped over and read all of her posts; so encouraging. I am glad to have added another homemaking blog to my reading list.

PS The Stephen Darbyshire painting of the cottage is my idea of the perfect home. I would love to live there.

I also like the teacup with the clock face - beautiful.

Mrs.O has left a new comment on your post "Time, at Home":

I am writing,"slowing down does not mean slothful",1 in my journal this morning! Thank you. I always feel if I am not rushing from tasks to tasks I am being lazy. This is proving more difficult as I am middle aged and I become frustrated with not being able to get things done fast!
God bless
Mrs.O

My first comment did not seem to get through. I was thanking you for mentioning my poem and blog. Yes, the post is apt for ladies at home - or those who wish to be.

At my home since last December I've been babysitting my two great grandchildren ages 3 and 4yrs. at least three days a week from 5pm to 2pm the next day. When I'm not supervising and working with the children I must rush through my work and run to catch up on things that didn't get done while they are with me. I never get to enjoy my house work anymore and there is never any time to sew or mend. Things are getting out of hand. Do you have any ideas? I have been in prayer and must do this in the wee hours of the morning since the girls get up rather early in the morning.
