The "Art" of Home-Making Mondays ~ Inspiration #7

“I enjoy doing housework, ironing, washing, cooking, dishwashing. Whenever I get one of those questionaires and they ask what is your profession, I always put down housewife. It's an admirable profession, why apologize for it. You aren't stupid because you're a housewife. When you're stirring the jam you can read Shakespeare.”

  6. I love that quote of hers, and several others. I was so happy a few years ago when I ordered a used book of hers, A Time to Keep, and when it arrived it was signed - to ME! The inscription read "Greetings to Laura, Love Tasha Tudor, 1998". I was thrilled to say the least. :)
