It’s rained, snowed, had some sunshine the rain, rain, rain. We must have a creative mind and imagination and yes love a clean home as a housewife even though I respect all women with careers I just do better at home now and it works for our family.
For sure a blog will be posted. I’ve been so busy and there’s only do much time in a day and time gets away from us plus I’m always engulfed in a book!
I’ve had this reserved at the library and it finally came in.
I’ve done so much cleaning and decluttering lately. I think that when many of us get this done is winter time. I miss my warm weather and I have to find things to do indoors even if it is cleaning or decluttering and you don’t realize how much you accumulate until you get into the task of doing it.
Still taking care of my Bella and Stubs there family. It’s been a tough task getting Bella potty train. I’m using the potty pads sometimes she does well at times not. They love each other now. I’m so grateful. I’ve also started making the homemade dog treats, and there so much healthier, budget friendly to make and we all know our bills budget soars in the winter and our low speed months kick in for quite a few months so I’m saving a buck anyway I can. Happy there happy with them and eat them well!
This is my oldest son he’s moved here permanently and I’m so happy for this. I feel more at ease with him here. He has a mental illness so I’m especially grateful and my heart no longer hurts for him. He is loved and worthy and I make sure he knows it daily.
Otherwise I’ve done so much cleaning, dusting, organizing and decluttering. These are the things we find to do to fill our winter days or so least I do.
I took a break for a while and my number 1 goal is to blog more. Yes, I’ll be doing blogs on goals for sure for 2019. Most bloggers do, just remember they must be realistic. That’s the trick to it.
Dinner this evening was beans, cornbread and fried potatoes, it was delicious and a very fulfilling meal I added shredded carrots for color and they turned out nicely! Very filling with even some leftovers. Good for the budget when we can reuse left overs.
I love my counter display I even put my own twists on them and add southern charm always! Organization and order in life is a have to for me and a must! Make it fun !
I change mine up at times probably to much.
I’m looking forward to all of our 2019 goals end anxious to see what we accomplish through out this year !
Let’s have a wonderful year and endure the persevere thatd6yhe key to weather the storm no matter and still praise Him through our storms.
Way past my bedtime and until next time dears! We do live in the country and sleep peacefully however, it’s late!
I have a loving husband that is my best friend, my son is happy here and:
Welcome to my blog “My Journey as a Housewife! I’ve thought about this long and hard as I decided after all these years I may as well write and blog about what I do best and who I am which is a stay at home housewife.
I’m Vicky and thanks for visiting and welcome! So happy your here!
My husband and I married when I was the age of 47, in which I have been a stay at-home housewife the entire duration of our marriage of 6 years. It’s such a true blessing to be able to stay home and be a stay at home housewife.
I love and enjoy it. My husband works a minimum wage job and we managed to purchase our first home last year with 3 acres of land, another out building, and a workshop for my husband.
I love to write and this is my haven, where I write about all things within my life along with “my journey as a housewife” here where I am able to do a daily brain dump and write and blog about all I love and enjoy doing and pursuing future goals, hopes and dreams.
If this is ever something you hope and dream of doing you can and be almost as perfectly happy as I doing it. Only God is perfect right? I hope you’ll decide to sit and have a coffee, latter or tea for all I have to blog about! Coffee with cream for me!
We all know exactly what I’m talking about when I combine my passions with what I also love to do which is cook, I’ll blog about my grocery hauls with ways to save, be organized and this is an area of life I have to be organized to live successfully as my husband and I do. I have a passion for experimenting with different recipes, making fresh bread while my family gets to enjoy enjoy the goodness of delicious food. I love to read many, many, books along with a hot cup of coffee strong or any type of book that is beneficial to my life!
I’m going through some changes which is deciding to blog about my “journey as a stay at home housewife . I’m excited about my whole new blog because it’s really or has turned into such over the years.
My hope is that you will enjoy all I write and blog about here and learn new things daily as I do. Oh! That’s just one more thing I love! I love to learn all about all areas in our lives!
I have always been interested in photography and I enjoy it as a hobby and love to take photos. I’m in the process of educating myself more on this area. I want to know everything there is to know about photography, videos, editing, yet I still have to tell myself “it takes time” because in this area there is so much to know and educate yourself about and within. I also have a U-tube channel” my Journey as a housewife” and believe me when I say “I’m winging it. “
Thanks for being here and this is a whole new blog I’m starting. My last blog was beehumblewithme.com and I decided to change it to this title” to add a little more excitement and as well as personality to my blog! Why not right? Being a housewife has become a passion of mine as I stated on a warm spring day like today.
I write and blog about all I do here in my home because I am a stay at home housewife which I love and enjoy being blessed and thankful to my Savior Jesus Christ for this once in a lifetime opportunity to be the best wife and housewife I can possibly be.
I enjoy and love having a cleaned and organized home. This is my cleaning closet. I tell my husband “there is a place for everything”.
I am a bookworm and I always have a book 2 or 3 books open somewhere in my home that I am reading so I enjoy being able to write and blog about all the fantastic books I read and you will have a chance to read about them to right here with me. I enjoy reading blogs about books other bloggers read when I’m in search of a new title to select and read.
You can now order Katie Bennett’s book, Heavenly Minded Mom and it’s a 90 Day devotion about living each day with an eternal perspective. It’s an interesting read. It was great! I was in her book launch team and let’s just say I couldn’t put it down or stop reading it! One of my favorite books I’ll be referring back to for a very long time!
My husband and I live on 3 acres of land with Stubs our dog, ourrooster his name is Brave and our chickens. We live in a beautiful cul-de-sac in the country and it’s quite the comfy and lovely place here in our mobile home.
Our Rooster Brave and our chickens.

A beautiful view on our land.
The Chicken 🏡 House 🐔
Great day for a walk with the dogs on a path behind our house.
Home Sweet Home
My husbands workshop.
The prettiest Tree in Our Front Yard.
I enjoy cooking and experimenting with new recipes, baking fresh baked bread, oopsI think I already said that but the best part is when my husband and I sit down to eat one of my my many tasty meals because I just love to cook. Its just my husband and I because all of our children have left the nest and are out on there own.
I enjoy simple crafting from time to time, decorating in my home because we just purchased our home and land a little over a year ago and one day I’ll have it looking just the way I hope for it to be which is a home filled with lots of love and lots of tlc. My husband enjoys building projects and making things in his spare time when he can and has the time. I support him entirely in this area!
I’m so thankful were all moving toward the different seasons in our lives as we discover new chapters in our lives and see what God has in-store for us all. I read a devotion and scripture in the morning and I will blog about my journe with Jesus Christ my Savior from time to time to. It’s such a blessing that he died on the cross to save us from our sins and I make sure to thank and praise him daily.
I just have to share with you how grateful I am for our wonderful church family at Whitley City Church of God! We are truly blessed to be members of our church and we have such a loving church family.
I enjoy gardening, fresh flowers and growing fresh herbs to, for the food I cook here of course. Seldom do we ever dine out and were always working on eating healthier to.
Gardening is always delightful!
I also hope to start doing Yoga one of my goals, because it’s an exercise I think I would enjoy!
I love, love, love all things old, vintage or antique and being able to decorate my home in this way. I have an older style sewing machine that hopefully I’ll put to good use soon. It makes a beautiful piece of furniture to.
I hope it is!

We look at as an art, and what comes from within our heart, all while we’re having fun doing it, and it’s time at home and with our families we can cherish and never get back so we want to be the best at it and nurture, learn and be there for each other.
In the 1950s women dressed beautiful and elegant, all while they stayed home and took care of their homes and family and kept everything in place and the house up and running week by week, month my month and year by year and we’re still doing this today. Hey we like the routine and the way things were back in the 1950’s so we’re choosing to navigate the waters and still live in these times well kind of as much as we can! What matters most is it makes us happy and pleases our families to. It’s the coolest way to live ever as housewives!
Let Your Hair Down Still
I’m grateful everyday to be able to stay at home and be a housewife and take care of my family and run my home.
Right now is housewives at this time we have a 4 week challenge were doing she started on her blog and started a group for us ladies over at http://housewivesliving1950s.com/ and we are choosing to live like women in the 1950’s for 4 weeks! Me always!Its pretty neat if I do say-so myself!

We do have and make time to do other things we love and enjoy as much as loving and caring for our home, and family such as sharing our projects, and hobbies were working on like my needle point and cross stitch that’s coming right along.
Say “we have to eat to”!
However, it is the most unappreciated and uncalled career or job in todays society. Some are ridiculed some are not. Some women choose to have careers and some don’t. For some families, as expensive as child care is a family can benefit more being a one income family with a parent being in the home full-time and being with their family and each day is priceless. I know it is for me!
We’re in our homes 7 days a week, 24 hours a day with each and everyone of our families, well, at times or most of the time, and there is always something to be done with home, children and animals, let’s not leave them out of the mix. We choose to do this with out ever taking a sick day, or bringing home a paycheck. All housewives do one heck of a job!
Through all of this we try and succeed at and we do I might add, at squeezing leisure time into our schedules to enjoy all of the above and quality time with the family. We’re just normal women like all of the rest of us, only we are in love with and want to do the best job we can at being a housewife. We just want to roll and tease our hair, use lots of hairspray and tease our hair, wear aprons, bake bread, wear Mary Jane’s and saddle backs (those cute black and white shoes like the cheerleaders use to wear!) A lady in our group actually has a pair and their to die for! They came all the way from California!

It seems I have to stay with beehumblewithme.com during:
My Journey as Housewife..
It’s where my blog originated from and I can’t still enjoy and follow my journey as well as others in:
My Journey as a Housewife!
I do hope you’ll still follow along. I originally wanted the wordhumble. in the name of my blog because of course I want and hope to humble others by my writing, what I do each day, the great books I read and walking through every day life as strong, empowering woman.
Great Books I’ve been reading.
Another good I picked up for bedtime and bedside reading. I’m anxious to see what she has to say about the south!
My favorite on Netflix has been what can say scintilla please!
Anne with an E and what a fabulous show!
Around the house I’ve declutter and moved things around and made my original coat closet from a cleaning closet to a coat closet and cleaned out my hall closet and stashed it with fresh towels, cleaning supplies and a very special placement for my cast iron skillets! It turned out fabulous, of course I have quite a few boxes to move to the pit building. Plenty of time it’s winter.
And of course all is well at home days I have when I just want to curl up with S book and then again I have days where I can’t get enough cleanliness and organizing in. I have yet to watch Linnaeus on Netflix because if there is anything I want my home to reflect it’s Joy! As she has started. More than like I’ll be pitching several things. I see a yard sale coming in the Spring. Do other feel like I do? I have so much! I want to and can be happy living with less! I’ll be on a roll.
My new Netflix favorite is Life Below Zero! It’s pretty amazing how these people live and a person could really learn so much. My husband and I love it! Yes we are still happily married! Joined by my son which makes me so happy!
All the family in my home seemed to want to hang there coats all over or on my kitchen chairs so I’m hoping this does the trick! I thought about a coat rack my the door but why when I have a perfectly use able coat closet that had been being utilized for a while for my cleaning closet it all worked out and I am very pleased even though I procrastinated about it for some time. Don’t we all do that?
Our Pets Stubs and Bella
Bella and Stubs are still happy as ever in the family! Bella is growing like a weed. Potty training well let’s just say it will come in time because at times she misses. They eat well and that makes for happiness for our fur babies. They’ll be even happier tomorrow when their chewy. come box arrives.
Bella is getting a new collar I can’t seem to find one big enough to fit her, a bed for her, a bed for stubs, next, some rest flavored bones, and a big hug of tasty treats! One thing at a time right. Stubs sleep with my son Bella with us but I’m hoping they’ll like there beds. Bella is going to get much bigger. Their both such great dogs for family.
Projects or hobby’s
I’m looking into starting needlepoint when I purchase supplies. I think I’ll really enjoy it.
My husband is planning to saw down trees and start and eventually built us a fence.
It really is Delicious!
New reading glasses so cool and love the colors! I read all the time. Had to have them!
Seasoned to perfection!
All in all life is grand!
My soon to be clock when I order! We got plans here in this home I love this kitchen scale from ltd. commodities.com and their cheap with great prices!
Well yes, I am well stocked up and I have found me some new authors even though they have been around for sometime and even though I just recently learned of these authors that have some great reading material and there’s nothing more I love than being lost in the greatness of a novel wrapped in throw to keep me warm and a hot cup of coffee or tea!
This is quite a start and there’s more to come. Don’t mind the back ground decor because we live in an older mobile home and besides were southern and we don’t need much. Plenty of hearty healthy meals, good TBN religious shows to to watch and plenty of good, good reading material. We love John Gray! My husband doesn’t miss a morning without him.
Now for my next TBR stack of books here we go! I have many great reads ahead and more to come as hour as your welcome to check on Goodreads.com for my account to see and follow along with me about all I read.
We’ve also gotten a new bulldog and he doesn’t like his new sweater even though I can not get him to wear it or get used to it, maybe another one sometime I hope in time. She’s a female and not wanting any part of this pretty purple sweater so hopefully soon. It’s winter and cold here and my babies have to be warm when going to the potty see, I’m sure you understand dogs are family to here in our home.
It was such a pretty day on this day that we had traveled from Whitley City, Ky. to Oneida, Tenn. and we had just gotten our first snow and boy did it continue to snow here and I wanted to share some photos because I know that I enjoy seeing photos from all others blogs and their lives and knowing, learning and understanding about and where we all come from. I have edited these photos to make them smaller because I didn’t realize until later that the pictures in this blog were huge and I have nowdownsized them some for my readers.
Here is more reading material so I have plenty for at least a couple weeks.
We had an errand day in the cold pretty photos though. Other wise I am enjoying my faith filled journey as and being a housewife for as long as God’s grace fills me and equips me to keep spreading his word and love along with faith and spreading and blogging about all he’s blessed myself and our family with.
Until then I’ll be enjoying my journey as a house wife and blogging about all things domesticated, housewife, vintage and all things we love in our kitchens and homes and taking care of my family as I love all of the newest things I can because I just love to learn, write, and blog about all new things!
Until next time I hope you’ve enjoyed and please come visit again bad keep returning! God Bless…
Come visit again I have many things to blog about coming this winter season! Thanks for stopping by…
He was napping here taking it Eazy he’s still a baby and my other dog Stubs continues to growl every time Eazy gets near him he growls and I hope they make friends or brothers soon!
We have church in the morning and my son will be here. He wanted the dog but I’m keeping him no matter what. At times my son had been known to move around and live with room mates or live with friends and even travel so Eazy will have a good life here with all of us.
This is the litter of all of them and I thought the back and white puppies were so cute even though all of them were adorable!
A lady from my church Gabe me this dog. He’s S bulldog and I knew hell get nice and plump here in the Garland farm! He’s so lovable and I’m so happy to have him in our home and I thought I would share some more pictures. A dog really is a man’s best friend!
Well there have been some things I have been unsuccessful at thus far thought our summer here in the country here in KY.
We tried our hand at raising chickens and all were gotten by predators but we do plan to try again in the Spring. I had a mama that had 18 babies and all were gotten by predators. So sad but that’s what we learn to do move on, try again and not give up.
I’m am planning to have several projects going on through out for Fall and Winter.
I want to paint our entire house with my husband and myself being the painters of course.
I have an extra bedroom here in our mobile home and it has a big bay window and the bedroom has no much more light and of course I’m thinking of moving our bedroom in there.
I’m planning to take all decor down off my walls and paint, paint, paint, until our little hearts are content and bring some fresh style into our home.
I’m really leaning towards transitioning into the farm house style and look for our home.
We live in a mobile home on 3 acres and I am in love with all things vintage, farmhouse and old so this should be fun and entertaining to say the least.
I haven’t been writing much I am in need of a new laptop and I will be purchasing one soon. I’ve been researching and reading reviews on this as I want to get the best deal. This is why I haven’t been blogging so much but I plan to get back to it.
I figure it will take me through Fall and Winter to bring this new loom into my home and I will share my journey along the way.
There are several shops here and a vendors mall because I surely won’t be running out buying all things brand new I am a thrifty, frugal shopper after all and I like and enjoy things that have some wear to them and they always look great in my home.
I’m also planning to add some different furniture to our living room. My husband and I have had the same living room suite since we got married years ago. We now have a sectional and I’m thinking a couch and recliner would work just fine for us and honestly I am so tired of this sectional!
I could add a different touch to our kitchen because actually with just my husband and I, we could definitely use a smaller dinette set in our kitchen. I’m thinking and island on wheels well see!
Before I can do any of these things I hope to do through out Fall and Winter the painting has to be done first and then I’ll work on adding a little bit at a time.
I believe I’ve been in a rut and it’s time to get a grasp on ten projects I’ve been so desperately pining about each and every day.
I’ve had a battle with depression over the last few months also. I know I’ve heard it said that this time of year others battle with seasonal depression and I’m trying not to allow it to keep me this way for long.
I’ve read many, many books through out the summer season and many Amish novels to. I have to say I just love their simple way of life!
What are your plans as far as goals or transitioning into Fall and Winter. I always try to change or decor up in some way as the season change even using what I already have at times. Yes, I’ve done this many times in my home and you’d be surprised how easy it is to change the look in your home with what you already have.
This is all I have for now and great day to everyone and thank for stopping by!
