What’s On My June TBR Summer Reading List…

What’s On My June TBR Summer Reading List…

This is a book that is so well written and interesting that I read and I got it from one of those little tree house or corner libraries at my church that says: Borrow a Book!

It is called The Bookshop On The Corner By Author Jenny Colgan and I had never read any of her work but any novel about a bookstore one of my favorite places will pull me right in.

She’s a librarian and their switching over to all things technology and she loses her job after many years. She decides to leave the town she lives where she goes and looks at this vendor bus to purchase and she turns it into a mobile bookshop and stays in the village where she purchased the bus where she meets a mysterious man that is in charge of the train in the  that comes through where he leaves her mysterious poetry and beautifully written books to fill her days.

She has a hard time with her landlord but they kind of grow on each other and she makes many great friends. It’s such a great summer read! I don’t want to give away everything in this book I just about read it in one sitting it was that good! This is just a great read that I read and I wanted to tell you about and maybe you would like to put it on your TBR List!

This is a book that is on my list because I enjoy reading any book that makes my home and family run easier and I am intrigued by this book!

The Housewife's Guide to Frugal Food: How to Eat for $10.00 per Week by [Bontrager, Bethany]

This book is also on my lists for ways to save conserve and be more frugal! I was on Kate Singhs blog Coffee With Kate and she had blogged about how she is dedicating herself to read this and I dedicate myself to read this to! I find these books interesting and useful for my home personal and family life.

This is a memoir that is very highly rated and I’ve heard so much about all that she perseveres through it should be a satisfying read!

 

Furious Hours: Murder, Fraud, and the Last Trial of Harper Lee

I think this new read by Harper Lee will be a smashing success!

20190602_103728

This is my BOTM choice from Book of the Month Club for May. It set in war and over 500 pages and I think it will be a delightful read!

20190602_103722.jpg

I have read The Great Alone by author Kristin Hannah rated the best book on amazon.com 2018. It’s about a young girl, her family doesn’t have much, her father a Vietnam vet inherits land from a man he was in the military with and they up and move to Alaska where they learn the true meaning of survival and how much strength it takes to survive here. They spend their summers preparing for winter but Lenni I think that’s her name endures so much more but truly grows to love Alaska!  Things go wrong and she must make decisons she’ll regret and decisions that will change the course of her life forever. It’s a 5 star read and my book club Literary Alliance is reading it in July and I can not wait to read it again. I did an add-on with BOTM. Yes! It was on there and this is a book I wanted on my shelf and wanted to own after all for 9.99 verses 35.00 ay Krogers. BOTM is a great deal for hardback books for 14.99.

This is my BOTM Choice for June! It says it will wreck you so we will see! I think it will be a great read!

IMG_20190509_003023_116.jpg

I’m still reading this I got sidetracked but it really is well written and it goes back to the time of around 1950 and tells how they met dated and are where they are. I am enjoying it. It’s worth reading!

The Rest of the Story by [Dessen, Sarah]

 

This si my choice for audio through walmart.com whic is a much better deal than Audible for 9.99 and have great reads! 

This is her 14th YA book and this young girl doesnt remember her mother but does remember stories she’s told her and it is now her and her father but when she has to go and spend time with her mothers family she sees her father and her mother in her and has to decide who she really is. I would like to read this book in hand to! It’s a story about families as the author states and families we are born into and families we make.

There you have it here are some of my dynamic reads. I am still reading the Court of Thorns and Roses I am enjoying this series and taking time to enjoy it!

Books that are on my list:

George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones 5-Book Boxed Set (Song of Ice and Fire Series): A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, and A Dance with Dragons by [Martin, George R. R.]

This is so on my list!

Norwegian Wood (Vintage International)

This is a coming of age story that I want to read!

 

The Trouble with Goats and Sheep: A Novel by [Cannon, Joanna]

 

I came across this author really just reading book reviews and I think Ill enjoy her writing and her work from what I’ve read so I added this to my TBR list.

Have a great week and please post your TBR list and I can be able to get some great book recommendations!

Every Day In May…

Every Day In May…

Hi to all my readers and yes, it’s been a while since I have written and posted a blog but I just went through a huge transitioned and moved and I’ve been trying to get my house unpacked all decorated and just the way I like it. Our home is our haven and it should be completely comfortable and we should love to be in our homes. All of this is many more blog posts and there will be many more blogs to come in the future because I love my new home and everything about it. Moving on I want to tell you why I’m writing this blog and I’m so excited about it!

There is a blog I read by Harper Grae and I just love her blog! She blogs about book hauls, unboxing, TBR list, what she plans to read. I am an avid reader and I just love and enjoy her blog. Were bookworms together!

Image is from Harper Grae’s blog and I hope you’ll visit her blog!

 

She suggested that we do Every Day In May and write a blog post every day and as you can see it’s May 11th and I failed some and I own it but, here I am and for me, it is about accountability and I thought it was a great idea! I think all writers and bloggers at times need a push or a nudge to write and what better way. At times I know that I’ll have trouble with thoughts and what to write. I keep a clipboard and ink pen always on my night stand. It may seem weird to others but thoughts come to me and night and I’ll grab my pen and clipboard and begin writing away.

I love technology but I still today am in love with putting pen to paper. I probably own more ink pens than anyone I know in this area. Usually, if the pen doesn’t glide across the page, let’s just say a pen has to write a certain way.

I went on and on enough about writing, ink pens, blogging, planning for it and all that goes along with all we write and do on our blogs! I love the blogging community! Were all so kind and willing to lend a hand or give advice or just be a great friend and I hope you’ll join along for Every Day In May and we can learn about each other and see what’s going and what we are involved in or what’s coming up in May!

I didn’t intend for this blog to be short or it seems short but, I did have to do some maintenance when I logged on. We as bloggers always want things to be better and there is always a reason to smile! Have a great weekend…

Next blog post: I’ll be telling you all about my new home and I’ll have photos to and I hope you will visit again…

Join along for the fun!

Another Day in Paradise…

Another Day in Paradise…

Being able to stay home and take care of my family daily is a task I’ve enjoyed the entire duration for as long as I can remember and I even enjoyed it when my children were younger. I  have been blessed even when I lived on very low income and it can be done at times I just had to make sacrifices as to what’s more important than the other or as to when. I can honestly say I live and have a very full filling life today and God and my faiths have been a huge part of this.

fb_img_1549061701455-951307074.jpg

I’m proud to call myself the the homemaker of my home and such. In other words I do it all and enjoy it. I take care of my home and do all things domestic and at times otherwise or when it’s needed, sew and read all types of very interesting books.  My two favorite hobbies are reading and sewing and yes reading had t come first. I am a bookworm! What would the world be like without books? I couldn’t even imagine.  and there is never a time I don’t have a bookmark in a book, or two or three, here in my home. This is one bookshelf and I currently have books stored in the bottom of a desk that I’m slowly but surely turning into a book case or when I find the right book case or thrift find, of course, I will invest in  it and add it to my home. I know, I know, the big Kon Marie going on it’s the biggest new thing when it comes to decluttering but sorry books are one thing I want to keep and purchase more of! Hopefully one day I’ll have a new library and I’m working on my book selection here looking much better than it does believe me!

My Journey As A Housewife Photos 294

But first, this room has been my catch all while I declutter all through the house because Spring is coming fast and I want to be ready. It’s just ordered a  common thing that has to be and I can’t live without. What haven’t I decluttered and I believe I’m just about there:

Yes, I know it’s been quite the tasks allow me to make that plural and it’s probably overwhelming just seeing the photos here.

I had a coat closet off from my kitchen that I really needed the use of if you recall last year it was my cleaning closet. I decided after I read a blog post about POU, point of use that I could move all of my cleaning supplies to the hall closet and I could finally move the towels that had been under the bathroom cabinet since this place was purchased and  this place along with all the other accessories that were crammed in there I could finally move them to the hall closet like I have been wanting to do forever. I wish I could remember the blogger and blog post but right now I don’t. I do like to give credit where credit is doing.

I tackled my bedroom closet and I knew it was going to be a dreaded chore. It had been for a while but, I have to prepare for Spring and Summer coming behind it and as I worked on all of it a little each day it has all come together. I just shared the photos all together and I hope it’s not too confusing.  Id live in a mobile home, it’s an older one nothing to fancy but I loved older and antique anything! And I want to get my sewing machine up and going but that’s an entirely different blog post. It works fine I just haven’t used it for a while. We’ll move on and I will tell you about my latest hobbies!

As I said I’m sewing or reading and these are the projects I’ve chosen to work on for a while and they’ll keep me content and busy!

My Journey As A Housewife Photos 110

I picked up Reese Wither spoon’s Whiskey in a Teacup, her new book and it’s been a really interesting read. My favorite chapter is the chapter she writes about hot rollers and no spoiler alerts you’ll just have to read the book and I don’t want to spoil it for you. It’s such a nice book to just curl up one evening with and have a hot tea or coffee and binge read even though I haven’t had the time, I would love to.

It’s such a pretty book inside and out and Reese also writes about her family and growing up in Tennessee. It comes with recipes from her grandmother that I can’t believe she shared and I’m definitely trying her grandmother’s sun tea!

As far as my sewing projects I’ve chosen a few. I ordered a small needlepoint just for practice because I have a Thomas Kincaid cross stitch I picked up that I’m excited about starting on. Since I haven’t done cross stitch or embroidery for a while I am using this one for practice. I will probably be working on my cross stitch quilt and my Thomas Kincaid both at the same time. I can’t wait to see how my quilt turns out either. I will show you my pattern though.

These are what I’ll be having fun with and enjoying working on. The tool is an auger if I spelled that right. It’s a hand made antique drill and I saw it and thought it to be a unique piece. It would really look nice hanging somewhere even if hanging in my garden area. Just a thought who knows.  The dear sewing machine I have neglected to use. but I hope to be using it soon. I want to attempt to make some house dresses and other clothing in time. They would be absolutely cool and comfortable for Spring or Summer.

If your a blog reader as I am and you sew I have found a website I have been reading at daily and it’s called:

Needle 'n Thread

You can read all you like here! Believe me, when I offer this advice to you, she has all you’ll ever need when it comes to any type of sewing.

What I’ll be reading is our Literary Alliance book club is planning to read The Tattooist of Auschwitz we start it March 1st in our book club.

Other reads I have on my TBR list:

Image result for the secret orphan

Image result for the beekeepers promise

Image result for the world of cross stitching

I love and enjoy this magazine and they have a sale right now on their subscription.

This is all I have I know it’s been a little while since I have written a blog as I’ve been quite busy! Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful full filling week and please visit again. Feel free to leave a comment or email anytime and let me know the name or title of your blog or website and I would love to visit and enjoy. I read many blogs. This is usually what I’m spending time doing in the afternoons is reading a book or the blogs I visit on a regular basis and I would love to add yours to my list. I’m always interested in finding new blogs to read. In the blogging community were here to support each other and share much love after all…

Why Are We Choosing to Live as Housewives in the 1950’s do?

Why Are We Choosing to Live as Housewives in the 1950’s do?

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!

Housewife on a Country Road

Thoughts To Remember

She has created a group for all of us housewives to become friends, share recipes, have chats , ask questions and post all we can find as far as how we know, live , read, post and are able to find out and apply to our lives about 1950s housewives living and how we all love and enjoy it!

We ask questions if we need to, help others when we can, post photos of what we do each day in our homes and daily tasks as a housewives loving, caring and pampering our families.

We don’t forget to pamper ourselves either because the better we look as beautiful strong women the better we feel! And there is strength in numbers what can I say we rock!

Sewing n Such

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!

Four Seasons in 7 days and What Must We do with our time? Be domestic of course…

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!

My current read that I’ve had reserved!

I’ve had this reserved at the library and it finally came in.

I’m in love with this kitchen decor! Found it at a store called Jimminy Crickets & love her prices!

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.

My son thought it would be cute to curl her ears back! So cute!

Sweet Bella she’s growing!

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!

Living room is a mesas while I clean elsewhere!

Always be happy!

A Gift from my son!

Yum! Yum!

A Gift from my son!

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.

Living room and can’t you just tell I’m elsewhere cleaning and cleaning!

“Don’t let the sun go down on our anger! Sure we all have it at times!

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:

Today I choose Joy!

With great books all the classics!

About Me

About Me

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!

My Home Office

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!

Coffee with cream

Fresh Baked Bread Yum!

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.

Coffee and a book! My kind of afternoon!

My pegboard to keep me organized in my home office.

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 channelmy Journey as a housewife” and believe me when I say “I’m winging it. “

My Minolta Camera

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.

My husband and I. He’s my best friend!

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.

My morning Bible Study time on the porch.

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”.

My Cleaning Closet here at: my journey as a stay at home housewife.

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.

5 star book The Orphan Train A Must Read

This Devotion Is a 5 star read about living life with an eternal perspective.

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, our rooster 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.

I enjoy cooking and experimenting with new recipes, baking fresh baked bread, oops I 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.

Homemade Lasagna

A good breakfast on this day.

Fried Pork Chops for dinner

Chicken and Rice Soup Homemade it's so good!
Hearty home made chicken and rice soup.

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!

Just one of my husband’s many DIY projects. We did paint it red.

My kitchen! Most favorite place in our home.

Cage free eggs are the best!

Fresh eggs!
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.

Whitley City Church of God Sunday Service.

Sister in Christ Louise. Love her!

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!

One bed of my garden.

Number two bed of my garden.

Number three bed of my garden.

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.

My dusted and shined piece of furniture is my vintage sewing machine.

I hope it is!

Home Sweet Home…

Home Sweet Home…

We made a big move in April and it was a challenging transition but we did and it’s done.

My husband and I separated so my oldest son and I moved back to Northern Ky. Where I lived my entire life and where my children were raised also.

As for my husband I, after 6 years I just believe we have grown apart and no longer want the same things in life. I wish him all the best and I’m happy to be home!

Nice new cozy living room and I love our new home!

I’m not entirely done with my decorating. Let’s just say I’m taking my time!

My kitchen at home…

I love the window and being able to look out of while washing dishes. No dishwasher here. It’s my therapeutic time of the day morning or night!

Bella is right at home as you can see she likes to visit me when I’m doing dishes or cleaning the kitchen.

The move was tough on Bella. Well the actual ride she was scared the entire way as I just held her and reassured her that Mama was here and everything would be just fine and you’ll love your new home Baby!

I had told my son this move is going to traumatize my dogs! But all is well their home and happy!

Hi I’m Bella!

Hi, I’m Stubs…

Hi I’m Bella & This is my bone!

Napping again told you I love my naps!

Still love my naps…

Stubs gets to have daily walks now! Bella to but, she likes the inside at

Love my kitchen!

In Memory of Memorial Day & Our Parade Today…

To all that serve daily to profect us and our families we thank you!

Happy Memorial Day!

Where we served cheese coneys at: Dixie Chili as the parade went by and before. Families wanted to have lunch before the parade!

Every year on this city where I’m from born and raised and we just moved back here April 1st, we have a Memorial Day Parade and it’s fun to sit on the sides of the streets see all the families and everyone throws candy out for the kids to collect their candy. The kids always have a nice nice bag for collecting their candy. They throw it out and all the kids run to catch the candy or pick it up!

A very old fire truck!

The officers that protect this city daily!

Another fire truck!

The children waiting to catch candy!

Look at the end of the nice corvette in the parade!

Another fire truck!

All the people that came out to see the parade!
