13 January 1956/2010 “Busy Day”

woman at desk2 This has been me the past few days.

As we finally have a proper internet connection, I have spent my non-housework/cooking time on the computer writing and uploading content for the website.

I don’t want to make excuses, but I spent quite a lot of time answering an Advice question on Scheduling and I have that posted to the website.

I also did quite a bit on the FASHION page of the website as a pictorial guide for we Vintage Ladies to use as a reference to build our own wardrobes, or just for fun! So, check that out.

I have started a Books link/page as well, where we can suggest books on the home, cooking, fiction, etc.

I am going to be doing more on the Vintage Lifestyle Lessons this week as well as some fun content on What Grandmother Knew.

So, I don’t want my blog to be an only a ‘what’s happening on the website’, but I have spend SO much time on it today, that I felt just a quick referral to it would be alright.

I think my next blog post will be another practical/cooking post.

I hope all of you are fine and happy and keeping up our little Revolution.

Until tomorrow the, or unless I see you on the Forums if I get a chance later tonight.

  3. You will have to allow for editing needs, but when one has SO much to express and write and upload, hopefully some concessions will be made!

  8. Sounds like you need a nice pot of tea and so R & R for a few hours. I eagerly anticipate you next cooking blog. Though I am sure your website users are thrilled with you recent develops there, I (selfishly) miss the flavour of you 2009 blog. Keep up the good work!

  9. Well, I shall try to bring back the flavor of that blog. I think I am just putting alot of what I put into my blog into the content of the website now, so I need to keep up both. I need to now start the 1956 news as well on the blog. this is 50s gal, by the way.

  10. It seems your role in the 50’s project has changed. Originally, I found your blog entries to be a running journal highlighting how your 1955 self made her way through the day to day life of a 1950’s homemaker. With the creation of your new website (Which is Really Swell!), I think you have become more of a “Working girl” in a Mid-Century context. I see you becoming more of a columnist a kin to Julia Child, Emily Post, or even at times “Dear Abby”. Providing us, your readers, with reflections, how-to’s and advise. I think that in a 50’s context you would be spending part of your time working at your typewriter (computer) providing your daily article for the newspaper (your website and Blog). I guess one of the advantages is that you don’t have an editor breathing down your neck or “revising” your column. keep up the good work!

  11. Ron-thank you so kindly. Though no editor I unfortunately also do not have the Benefit of a paycheck. But, one does what one loves for the thing of it, right? And thank you for such wonderful comparisons. It is true, that I have to give over part of my day to the 'typewriter'.

  12. Oh, but revisions would be nice, as my grammer is deplorable, my spelling atrocious AND I tend to ramble on and on. But, we must be thankful for small favors, I suppose.

  13. I'm behind on all that you have done lately and am trying to catch up. I'm keeping a running list of websites, books, movies, etc. that I can add to the website. I have been waiting for you to get things set up so you're not being bombarded with even more info. Thank you for all that you've done.

  14. I have a question for you, and please don't get me wrong, but I've noticed that in this blog post and in the forum on the website, many homemakers like to talk about their "busy day". Why is it so? I work all day and have a few hours for doing my homemaker tasks, but I never talk about my "busy day" (except if it is really extreme). I also remember my homemaker mum talking about her very "busy days". Is it that the homemaker wants to prove or wants to emphasize how busy they are? Because they are afraid of others thinking they're drinking tea and reading magazines all day long. Perhaps this is a subject for you to write about.

  15. Sanne-it could be subconscious on my part. In this case my 'busy day' was meant to be expressed that it was 'busier than planned'. So, therefore I felt the need to apoligize for not having more done here and the site for all of you, and to not show that I was, as you say, drinking tea and reading magazines. Perhaps it is the puritan guilt. We americans, rather or not we are of the first puritan families, have a work ethic that often associates 'relaxing' with guilt and the need to 'explain away inactivity' thusly is simply an american trait, I think. THough, I think it safe to say that today we americans may still carry the guilt we often are not as 'busy' as our fore-mothers.

  16. I just got around to reading this. I can't speak for anybody else Sanne, but for myself, I like to see how others run their household, etc.; their scheduling in action. It's also a way to touch base with each other..."So, what do you have planned for today?"...in a general way. I didn't think of it as comparing with each other, or a guilt thing.
