QUIET CLEAN HOUSE
As a working mom. one of favorite little selfish pleasures is to be all alone in my own home. And if it’s nice and clean, then that’s an extra treat! I sooo enjoy sitting in our living room and looking out of the house at the trees in our front yard. I’m blessed to have such a sweet family of boys and I love every minute I have with them, but, on occasion, I do enjoy being alone in a quiet clean hose.
I’ve always kept a little book to write down favorite, random quotes I find. They can be about anything – love, friendship, God, life, etc. It’s fun to refer back to quotes that spoke to me at different times in my life. Now my quotes are more likely found tucked away on the computer in a file all their own.
Little bits of memory that are sewn together with love. Some of my earliest memories are of bedding down in Mama Moland’s back bedroom with five or six quilts piled on top of us during a cold winter’s night! There were always cousins around to share the fun and if we were lucky we got to sleep in the big feather bed up front! And when a storm ‘came up’ we’d head to the cellar and bundle up under quilts and tell ghost stories by the light of kerosene lanterns. I love quilts - whether they are full of fond childhood memories or newly purchased – they represent a tradition of warmth and caring in my family.
