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

Home Sweet Home here!

Love my kitchen!

Thanks for stopping by I’ll have many more blogs coming up!

In Memory of Memorial Day & Our Parade Today…

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!

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!

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!

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 word humble. 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.

Court of Thorns and Roses series

Another good I picked up for bedtime and bedside reading. I’m anxious to see what she has to say about the south!

Whiskey in a Teacup book

My favorite on Netflix has been what can say scintilla please!

Anne and Bell her love in a horse

Great pic of Anne then them songs start

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!

My makeover cleaning closet

Hall closet makeover

Hall closet make over

My hall closet

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!

Stubs and Bella playtime…

Have a happy week!

Read many great books!

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

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!

Pre-Historic Towns: Near or Where We Live…

Pre-Historic Towns: Near or Where We Live…

I had an old friend call me yesterday and ask me if I wanted to have lunch or the way she put it was “would you like to go have a steak with me”? She’s a lovely lady a little older than me and its always great conversation with her. I missed church but we had a lovely time!

The first stop stop was for lunch at “The Whistle Stop Cafe” and if your not familiar with the movie Fried Green Tomatoes this is where the name of the restaurant came from I’m more than sure.

This is the inside of Whistle Stop Cafe AMD it was late, late, in the day almost dinner time so they weren’t crowded at all. There was just one other table there. They had photos all across the wall and I took a walk around The Whistle Stop and had a look at then while my friend finished her lunch. I had a Ceaser salad, sirloin and loaded baked potatoes and it was heaven! I told my husband we’ll have to go there and I had never been I told my friend.

Here’s our late lunch! Yum and I don’t have steak often. My husbands a huge meat eater. I could live on vegetables.

There were photos of the coal mine when it was open here and I wish I had taken photos for you to see bit when I went for my walk around the restaurant I left my phone on the table. The were pretty amazing! There has been talk and newspaper articles here about reopening the mines Her but I don’t know if they ever will reopen.

This is inside the train depot here in Stearns, Ky. My husband and I live in Whitley City but it’s not far at all. Maybe 15 minutes or less. Stearns has a train anyone can ride and see all of historic Stearns, KY. Here and it takes you all the way through and around prehistoric Stearns, KY. And people are able to see all the prehistoric scenery and buildings that Stearns had managed to preserve.

These are down of the buildings they’ve manged to preserve here for history and they also have a museum here others can visit Mcreary County Museum and it let’s others know all about Mcreary County here.

This is a dress shop and other clothing here in Stearns called Choo Choo’s. I thought these were fantastic and honestly I wish more clothing and attire was like this to date. I love these dresses and clothing. I plan to go back sometime and shop and I’m sure I can find some comfortable clothing for a housewife.

The brown building here is where we have The Vendors Mall. It’s funny of booths and a person can find really great deals here and I do have decor here in my home I have purchased here.

It’s pretty amazing how they’ve managed to preserve all this here. Stearns I’d in the national prehistoric registry and I believe the heritage foundation.

I hope you’ve enjoyed all I’ve shown you here on the blog and written about today and if you are ever in the eastern Ky. Area it would be a wonderful place for the family to stop and visit and we also have huge South Fork park here. I’ll try and write a blog about South Fork sometime when after I get photos. The history of a town and preserving it is always so interesting to me.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by the blog today!
