Something to Think About… A Few Ways to Enjoy Homemaking

1. Light a candle by your sink as you wash dishes.

2. Listen to worship music, classical music, or something you love as you work.
3. Clean one area or room at a time. Declare it off limits when you’re finished with it.
4. Take frequent breaks to do something you enjoy for just a few minutes.
5. Use cleaning products that either smell great or are homemade.
6. Be thankful for what you have. Thank your husband and the Lord for what they have provided.
7. Start looking at yard sales and thrift shops for things that fit in with what you would like your home to become. Oftentimes, you can find things that are just perfect.
8. Think comfort in all you purchase for your home. Some styles may be pretty; but, they’re not always comfortable.
9. Determine to be thankful for what you have now.
10. Ruthlessly get rid of the things that you don’t need or enjoy.

11. Smile!

12. Pray while you iron.

13. Invite someone over. It’s great motivation; and, God tells us to be hospitable. It’s also fun!

14. Make time in your day for doing something you enjoy…knitting, sewing, crocheting, writing, reading, whatever it may be.

15. Place your favorite chair near your husband’s favorite chair. Reach over and hold his hand.

16. Seek friendships with ladies who enjoy homekeeping.

17. Try new recipes regularly.

18. Make useful things for your home and for your family.

19. Make things homemade as often as possible. There’s such satisfaction in it.

20. Take time for tea!

21. Use it up; wear it out; make it do; or do without!

This list is for me, too. I do some of these things, but not all of them. I’m looking for ways to enjoy homemaking, too. I’d love to hear your ideas.

Just Something to Think About….

Blessings to you all from Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ….

  1. Hello Laura! I don’t get the time to visit a lot of blogs but I have been to yours now a few times and enjoy it. I wanted to thank you for all the nice comments you leave on my blog. I really loved this post of yours! I love your ideas on how to make homemaking enjoyable. I do some of the very same things as well and now have a few more ideas to think about! 🙂 Blessings, Crystal 🙂 Homemaking Homesteader


  2. I have lit a candle while doing dishes. Actually, I like the feeling of hot sudsy water and the process of washing by hand. I have played worship music while cleaning, cleaning takes me so long to finish because we have too many rooms for me to do at one time. I do thrift or I re-paint furniture to make it look new. My husband and I sit on the sofa in the morning and have coffee together and talk about the day before and what we will do today. I always make time for tea. I cannot sew, but I do try new recipes. Most of my friends have careers that do not render them the time to focus on homemaking, and I feel badly for them. Anyway, your words are encouraging and always so right on target! ginny
