Everyday Life as a Homemaker can be repetitive work and today I hope to bring you along for a bit of homemaking inspiration. I hope you enjoy today’s video and post.

Enjoy The Video Version

“The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.”

Robert Louis Stevenson

Duties of a Homemaker

Today is another ordinary day at home for me. I have meals to cook, dishes to wash, and as always a daughter to tend to. Every day can feel like a blur when you are home doing the same thing each day. But there is so much to be said for living intentionally within our little dwellings.

It is important to make sure there is an effort not just in accomplishing tasks around our homes. But also in bringing about lovely things to appreciate and working towards a joyful mindset. It’s what separates a fulfilled homemaker and one who feels burdened by the workload.

On The Menu

Today in particular I am baking a Mushroom Swiss Quiche for lunch which may possibly be lunch and dinner today. Or perhaps lunch for a few days. Making foods ahead of time is a great way to help keep balance as it is always helpful when you have something you can quickly heat up for a meal. I am not one to meal prep per se but it is good to have at least an idea of what could be made.

After lunch is served, I immediately clean the kitchen. Something I have found to be quite helpful come the later afternoon. There is nothing like starting dinner with a sink full of dishes. So instead of thinking I can clean them later, I clean them directly after. A habit worth forming surely as this has saved my attitude more times than I can count. The sight of a clean kitchen, as temporary as that might be, is one that instantly makes me feel accomplished in my list of to-dos.

Views From Home

But beyond that, the mindset must be fixed on the bigger picture. The dishes will always need washing and the meals will need to be made. But there is something quite lovely in between all of these things that carry us forward unto new days. It is to stand back in quiet reflection at the end of a day’s work. To see the fruit of a clean home, a fed family, and people comforted by their surroundings.

All done by the hands of a homemaker. These things are worthy of praise however little one might get. There is value here beyond what is tangible. The value one brings to her family when she labors with love in her heart is like a stored-up treasure to be savored later.

“It is not so much what we have but how much we enjoy that makes happiness.”

Charles Spurgeon

Though some days are tougher than others remember that your work within your home is important and worthwhile.

Thank for spending a bit of time with me today.

Best wishes for the week ahead,
