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.

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!

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!

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:

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

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!

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. “

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I hope it is!
