Please enjoy what you need to do at home while I discuss the importance of becoming less dependent on commercial products and services and doing as much as you can, yourself.

Thoughtful Times at Home

Early Morning view

Please enjoy doing things around your home while you listen to the message about eliminating stress:


Here are some of the kitchen mats I was showing you:

The old:

New one:



The subject today was how stress prevents us from living our full potential at home.
It prevents us from
believing in the answer to prayer
following a course of study or activity

To decrease the effect of distress:

Lose dependence on the world--quit waiting for politics to settle down
Depend less on human beings to give us relief
Have deliberate thoughtful times
Create a daily course of some kind  and follow it as though you were in a class, from things you want to do, or from books you have on hand.
Get ahead of the enemy of stress by creating your own future:  What you do at home today will make the future, tomorrow, much brighter.
Make time slow down or stand still by focusing on doing something you like.

We Are Keeping Quite Busy

The last week has been madly filled with work at home, getting the house and property in good repair while the weather was dry.

The Home Butler plan is going very well: everything in its place and everyone on their best behavior, as Emma would say.

As you can see, it is our dry spell here, and here is a photo of a lovely barn across one of the farm roads.  

I hope to take time soon to talk to you all. Thank you for your comments!

Courage at Home

The root of the word courage is cor – the Latin word for heart. ... Courage originally meant "To speak one's mind by telling all one's heart." Over time, this definition has changed, and today, courage is more synonymous with being heroic.

Here are some samples of the "free-hand sewing I talked about." This is done
without patterns, zippers, facings,  interfacing, buttons, ironing, and no pre-ruffle preparation.

Finding Better Ways to Do Things at Home

 Hello Everyone,  I stole away for a few minutes to give you a short broadcast. I hope you will listen while you enjoy your home today.  The video had a few stops in it (my editor is not here today) but if you will keep listening, it will continue with no problem. 

As always, I appreciate your listenership and your comments.

Summer at Home Slide Show

Greetings, Ladies.
Today my technician is here and she has created another beautiful slideshow for you.

My accompanying message is this: Each home can be reflective of personal preferences and deep values. 

It may take awhile to acquire, understand and appreciate the things that make your home “ just so you”.

It takes some of us a long time to settle on the arrangements in a room that we are very content with. 

I’m using furniture and  decor from my olden days and I got into my fabric stash to stage some areas with cushions and decorative blankets, curtains, etc.

 The impression I want to leave in this slideshow is to just relax and not stress over decor but use what you can find, and afford. 

The curtains in the guest room are outer shower curtains ( not the plastic liners) and the folded green plaid blankets and cushions in the boys room are pieces of fabric. 

I like outdoor furniture but in winter, even the hardiest items need protection so I bring in the chairs and tables and use them inside as part of the decor and for extra seating and project places ( tables).

This is not the way it always looks around here. I got pictures right after I cleaned up.
