1 August 1957 “Checking In”

stressedwoman.jpg I am sorry to be absent these past days. I have had a more than usual full plate. With decisions on our home for sale, final dealings with tenants and court dates (we were able to get into the house today…I can’t even discuss the damage right now).

I just wanted all to know I am fine and am very apologetic to have not posted in the past few days. I shall return to normalcy soon as we make some more serious decisions. I have been able to also enjoy moments of Cape Cod summer fun. Tea yesterday in town and a fun poke through our local shops. Biking to the beach and gorging on seafood. Relaxing by the fire as the cool of the evening sets in, the sounds of crickets and our laughter filling the summer night. I am trying to keep some good mixed in with the bad.

I hope all are well and are busy and enjoying their own Summer (Or whatever season your hemisphere is currently in)

Happy Homemaking.


  1. Sorry to hear of the extent of the damage. Glad to you know you are managing to find a bit of sunshine. Best wishes!

  2. Besides the problems with your tenants, who fortunately are our of your life now, it sounds like you're living a lovely, beautiful and romantic life. Enjoy the good life - you'll forget the bad sides soon. :)

  3. A homemakers job is to take care of the home front - we can all happily wait till you have time again:)

    Enjoy the summer weather!

  4. I just wanted to say I am absolutely loving your blog. For the past week I've started reading and I am currently at May 18th 1955!!!! I will be reading until I catch up! You have really inspired me to change my life and to live as a 1950's vintage fully embrace all the things I love in life and this era that i am so fond of. You speak such sense!

  5. Oh I feel for you and so wish I could help. Will you keep the house after the clean up?
    Any bites on the house you live in?
    Thank God you have the cape to enjoy his hand and work of nature to help mend your souls. Still love your writings, hubbies too.
    blessings as i know your heart is broken at seeing how crule, selfish and discusting your tenants have been. Unbelievable people can be that grotesque in their inconsideration of other peoples belongings. What has become of our society?

  6. A home is where the heart dwells, with warmth and love within. :)

    Happy Homemaking!
