Potent Quotable, 1-22-12

Nesting in January:

“I enjoy doing housework, ironing, washing, cooking, dishwashing. Whenever I get one of those questionnaires 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.” ~ Tasha Tudor

Takes courage to label oneself as a housewife in this day and age!  Would you be able to proudly say housewife?  I probably would not, even though I feel one of the most important contributions I make is caring for my people and environment.   (At times, done well, at times NOT!)

I found this quote at   The Quiet Home  , a blog from Scotland  I enjoy reading.

  1. “Housewife” : that word seems to say that you are married to your house!! I prefer “Domestic Goddess” which seems to infer that one is very good at all the home caring things and a little extra!!!
