My mission is to inspire women and girls of all ages to engage in and enjoy the traditional feminine arts of the women before us. And to be womanly and feminine, and stand out in a world so opposed to this. Enjoying our feminine roles with no apologies.
Bake biscuits (again, residual heat) and bring out the fig preserves.
If you are inclined to enjoy getting outdoors in the wintertime, there are many things to explore!
A WINTER'S IDYLL "Shut in from all the world without, We sat the clean-winged hearth about, Content to let the north-wind roar In baffled rage at pane and door, While the red logs before us beat The frost-line back with tropic heat; And ever, when a louder blast Shook beam and rafter as it passed, The merrier up its roaring draught The great throat of the chimney laughed; The house-dog on his paws outspread Laid to the fire his drowsy head, The cat’s dark silhouette on the wall A couchant tiger’s seemed to fall; And, for the winter fireside meet, Between the andirons’ straddling feet, The mug of cider simmered slow, The apples sputtered in a row, And, close at hand, the basket stood With nuts from brown October’s wood." Excerpt from A Winter's Idyll, by John Greenleaf Whittier
READING Reading is one of my favorite pastimes when it's cold outside. Try Kindle Unlimited for a variety of books to read on your computer, laptop, Kindle, or phone. And with a membership there are many books that are free. I love Kindle Unlimited on Amazon.
