If you have no system, you have to reinvent your housekeeping or debate what to do first every time you do it, and the required mental effort is a major obstacle, especially when you are tired.
Cheryl Mendelson, Home Comforts
Homemaking is not something that stands in the way of our deeper fulfillment; it becomes the ground that feeds it.
Shannon Hayes, Radical Homemakers
Good morning everyone! I started working on my own chart earlier today, it looks so similar to Jenny's that I didn't take pictures (instead you get a gratuitous shot of a fall still life, with needle felted pumpkin, Trader Joe's gourds and a special French clay rabbit, all on top of the cake stand I used at my wedding). I also spent a few minutes gathering inspiration from two seemingly different (but actually related in many ways) books: Home Comforts (that I mentioned the other day) and Radical Homemakers.
