On the Home Front: My Staff
This may sound bizarre, but ever since I went back to work from my summer vacation, I have employed a housekeeper. She comes in each Friday evening to clean the kitchen and bathrooms. I’ve also arranged with my daughter, who gets home at a decent hour, for her to cook dinner Monday thru Friday because I don’t come home until very late some nights and then don’t feel like cooking. So now I technically have a house staff of two! All I need is a butler and I’ll think I’m in one of my historical novels! LOL It may be extravagant, but I’m enjoying the hell out of it!
Jenna Fun Fact of the Week
I’ve been watching the Outlander episode “The Wedding” and so thought you might find a fun fact about my wedding would be appropriate. It was nothing like that wedding, of course, save for the candlelight. 🙂 My husband and I were married in a log cabin in a candlelight ceremony (thank God the fire marshal never found out). My gown had been made out of ivory silk my mother-in-law brought back from Thailand. And I wore something old (a handkerchief made from my grandmother’s wedding gown), something new (my gown), something borrowed (my mother’s pearls) and something blue (my garter). And tuppence in my shoe according to English custom (I’d saved one from my trip to England years before–just for this occasion). 🙂
That’s all for this week. Come back next Wednesday for more news from Jenna. 🙂
