I love pretty bedding. I love crisp cotton sheets and pillow cases in the spring and summer with a light cotton blanket. In the fall and winter we love our soft flannel sheets and pillow cases. We also love using a fleece blanket making our bed warm and cosy. We have a down mattress topper that is so comfy. We are pretty frugal with our spending, but we tend to budget a bit more for our bedding. We find it to be well worth the cost. We find that paying more for quality, for most of what we buy works out best in the long term.
I am very fond of how the Amish live. I love the simplicity of their homes. Our bedroom is not that sparse of "stuff", but is neat and tidy and would be the most simple room in our home. I love using soft colors. We have never had a TV, computer or other type of electronics in our bedroom. We do have a small clock radio in our bedroom. We do set our alarm clock for Sunday mornings as we leave early for church. During the week we try to schedule our appointments in the early afternoon. Neither of us likes hearing the alarm clock. It is a blessing and something that we are both thankful for with my hubby being retired. I love getting up early, just not by an alarm. My hubby sleeps in a bit later, giving me my quiet time early in the morning.
As I have mentioned before, my hubby and I love our mornings at home. We enjoy quiet time with our Bibles, our Daily Devotionals and our morning cups of coffee.
We both like a good old fashioned homemade breakfast. It is our main meal of the day. We usually have our breakfast around 9:00 a.m. This gives me plenty of time to prepare a good breakfast and not have to hurry. When we finish our breakfast, we tidy up the kitchen and begin our day. It makes for a peaceful beginning to the day. We have a nice dinner mid afternoon. In the evening we enjoy our cup of coffee with a homemade treat. We also enjoy nutritious snacks throughout our day.
Sunday is the one day that we have a light breakfast. Since we leave early for church, we usually have granola, yogurt, fruit and nuts for our breakfast. Dinner on Sunday's will be our big meal of the day. On Sunday mornings my hubby does up the dishes while I make up our bed. I do not like leaving home without having our chores finished up. I love, love, love coming home to a neat and tidy home.
Well, I will be back next Wednesday to share a bit about how our bathroom is a quiet retreat and a peaceful setting as we end our day and get ready to snuggle in for the night.
I would love to hear your thoughts.
