"For the beauty of the earth..."

Christopher Columbus!
I was so thrilled when I heard about Miss Rebecca's Little Women blogging event! As it happens... Little Women in our house is pretty much an everyday event so I didn't have to go far for something to blog about. =]
I live in a log house in the country with my loving 'Marmee' and my two (still single) sisters. (But I think you already know that.)
Here is our home which we like to call "Orchard House".
And we do have a small orchard too. =]
We live our lives very like the March's in a lot of ways. We garden, sew, quote Dickens ALL the time, cook, put on "wild theatricals" and love everything that is simple, pure and good.
I believe the number one most played cd in our house is this -
Here is a picture of the last dress I sewed (by hand) for my civil war reproduction china doll.
"This is an afternoon dress." =]
"Butter! Oh, isn't butter divinity!?"
Marmee always makes our house so warm and homey!
But Hannah certainly is right when she says, "housekeeping ain't no joke." ha ha!I thought I'd post some pictures of our daily chores so you wouldn't think it all just happened magically.
I forgot to get pictures of the feeding of the chickens etc. Oh well... I'm convinced that if the March's would've had chickens, they might have complained about them a little. ;}

I think we could all use in our everyday lives a little bit of Marmee....

a little bit of Meg...
a little bit of Jo...
a little bit of Beth...

a little bit of Amy...

and a little bit of Hannah too!
The most important part of our lives is serving our Heavenly Father who always helps us through life's "sloughs of despond" and gives us so much to be thankful for!"Lord of all to thee we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise..."
