Home Keeping (Made Simply)


It's very warm and humid today. So not my favorite type of weather. As a matter of fact, it's about my least favorite. You would think living in Texas all my life I would be used to it by now. I just don't do very warm or hot humid weather well Never have! But life and seasons go on, don't they?
I shouldn't complain I know. Forgive me. I need to practice on being more content, learning to be more thankful whatever the weather, whatever the circumstances in my life.
Fining happiness, joy and peace in every day. One day can bring about many challenges, good or bad. But God has ways of making everything work out for the good, to those who are called according to his purpose, and love him. Rom.8:28
What a wonderful blessing in knowing that is so true.
I am making changes in my life and home. Simplifying is a great change for me. As most of my visitors know I have been weeding my home and life of stuff since about 2009 now.  My wish is to someday downsize to a "Tiny Home ".
The mobile home I now live in is only 750 square feet, which I know would seem small to many. But it's more than I feel I need for myself.  Time will tell when and where this plan will find me,but in the mean time I will keep working toward it. Unless the good Lord directs differently.

Soon I will share some pictures to go with my thoughts on how I am downsizing in and out of  my home.
Blessings to you all and thank you for stopping by.    💕💐🐦

This picture below was a few years back, but it speaks of so much of what is most important in my life.


Take time for the simple pleasures of life. They will do the most good!
Downsizing ,makes for simple housekeeping and simple housekeeping makes time for having good times with those you love.

  1. My husband would love to live in a tiny home...me??? Not so much. We have a 1200 sq. ft. home and most days it seems too small. I wouldn't be that way but our grandchildren both have bedrooms here so my craft/office ends up in the kitchen. I do like simple, though!

    Grace & Peace,
    Pam

  2. Our home is 850 ft, that's small enough for me. I hope to stay here until my days are done. My hopes are to try and prepare our home so that my husband and I can age in place right here. I have learned never to say never, but I hope we never have to move.
