When Others Turn Their Back On You For Being a Housewife

I have had the pleasure of communicating with countless ladies who have decided to become housewives or are in the process of trying to become one. One of the biggest problems they've faced is having to listen to others scrutinize their choice. A lady, Kayla, who was an attorney and became a housewife told me that, coming from a family of doctors and lawyers in Manhattan, no one supported her choice. This seemed especially harsh to her since she was partially raised by the customary upper-middle-class nanny ...

My Goals Are So Much Simpler These Days

There was a time before I was a housewife that I had lofty goals similar to those of many other college girls. I thought I wanted to make gobs of money, climb the ladder, and be somebody, as if I already wasn't somebody. But as I went along, I slowly found that the old traditional nest-making skills would bring me to actual satisfaction in my life ...

Happy Easter Everyone!

I hope you all are having a blessed day, whether at home, church, or anywhere else! I've missed you all.

Tonight for Easter dinner we will be having ham, sweet potatoes,cole slaw, stuffing, deviled eggs, and apple crisp, and of course my first batch of iced tea of the season.

It is always nice to see nature come back to life in Spring. So yesterday, with my husband, I got started direct sowing some flower seeds in the garden.

I am also planting tomatoes, spinach, and scallions aplenty this year. There is a lot of garden work to do, so we're doing a little each day.

We planted two apple trees last year in our front yard -- a red delicious and a granny smith. One of them has blooms this year, which means, we might start to get some apples on them already!

It would be so nice one day in the future years to have apple pies, apple jelly, candy apples, etc. to look forward to.

Enjoy your day and I'd love to read your questions and comments below!

Emily Dickinson: The Honorary Housewife

When I was a college student I lived down the street from Emily Dickinson's house on Main St. in Amherst, MA. The poetess lived in the stately colonial home in the 19th century, and much like many housewives, she didn't want to leave it ...
