This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.

Must I ?

When we return to New York, must I walk around dressed like this ?
I mean, it is perfectly fine for me, but the husband will need convincing.

The Rustic Kitchen

When having to actually make a choice on the style of kitchen I want to go with, I think I might have a meltdown trying to decide. 
Lots of windows are important, views, room for a big table, possibly a fireplace. 
Oh what a good time I will have trying to make up my mind !

The Wish Book

I would find it difficult to leave this kitchen. I see me, curled up in that window seat, leafing through a cookbook, cup of tea nearby, something that smells good , cooking on the stove.
Add this to my Wish Book.

Domesticity




Was it for this I uttered prayers,
And sobbed and cursed and kicked the stairs,
That now, domestic as a plate,
I should retire at half-past eight?

I need to take a nap

It is our anniversary.
We have been married about 100 years.
No, really, we have .
I know, we do look young for our ages.

We know we are going out, but we cannot think of where to go or what we want to eat.
Eating out has become .. ordinary.. in its way.
It is no longer the treat after working and keeping house and cooking all the time. 
I don't cook that much, I try not to clean house and I don't work.

The idea of getting dressed and going out at 9 pm for dinner, makes me want to take a nap.
The idea of figuring out what to wear, makes me want to take a nap.

I think I might need to take a nap.

I will wear my beautiful new gift .. while I take my nap.

I have a good husband. 
Maybe he will take a nap too..
