A Moment's Pause in Domesticity

Domesticity - home duties and pleasures 

Doing a bit of sprucing things up today. Energized by the morning light filtering through the trees out our back windows. Hearing the clear, joyful chirps of birds as they greet one another in happy song.
Sunlight in the Blue Room 1891, Anna Archer 1859-1935

Being reminded that...

“Life was not intended to be simply a round of work, no matter how interesting and important that work may be. A moment’s pause to watch the glory of a sunrise or a sunset is soul-satisfying, while a bird’s song will set the steps to music all day long.” 
— from “As a Farm Woman Thinks,” in the Missouri Ruralist, April 15, 1923
