The Housework Never Ends...

Did you know there was a 'Suzy Homemaker'?  It's a personification of the quintessential female 
American housewife.  I just love this description:

Definition: a housewife who manages a household, esp. with enthusiasm; also, the sterotype of any woman who chooses a traditional female role.'s 21st Century LexiconCopyright © 2003-2011, LLC
Example of use:Why, aren't you the Suzy Homemaker! You are even wearing an apron.

I think that part about the "with enthusiasm" is great....I don't generally think of myself as enthusiastic about scrubbing the bathroom, or vacuuming....but I do love making my home inviting and comfortable and I guess I have an overall enthusiasm for my home ; )  How about you?

We always call one of my aunts "Suzy Homemaker" - it's meant affectionately, descriptively, to explain why she makes her own bread, her house is clean, and she gardens. . . all while working as a school nurse. I hope I'm a Suzy Homemaker too!

I've been so garden-centered these days that my house has gone to rack and ruin. I decided to have just a quick little blog check before tackling the upstairs. Now I'll try to do it with enthusiasm.

Why look! She's even wearing your shoes!

Yes, homemaking is a high calling. I taught my girls to sing hymns as they do the dishes...A midwife had shared that with me...Contentment with godliness... Great gain! : )
