Week-end Simple: Iron your table linens

The Christmas holiday is approaching, and for so many people it means the weekend will be spent shopping:  running from store to store, fighting for parking places, weary from trying to cross everything off the list.

Et moi?  This weekend, I will iron my table linens.  After Thanksgiving, I laundered my linens; now they are soft and sweet smelling, and ready to be ironed in preparation for Christmas. 

I admit, it's not a very exciting thing to do over the weekend, but, I enjoy ironing. And especially this time of year, when so much energy is used for buying and accumulating and acquiring, small household tasks keep me focused on the simpler parts of the holiday, the parts that have to do with family and home.

Bon week-end!


  1. I have inherited a ton of linens that have been in our family for generations (literally, my 83 year old grandmama gave me linens that belonged to her mother in law and her mother's mother). I spent a whole day last summer ironing them out and they arrived this summer so I'm now slowly using them, ironing them flat before use (they spent a year folded in drawers). I enjoy ironing them, it's soothing. That, a little music or the old radio show Father Knows Best, a cup of tea, and I'm happy.

  2. I just used a table cloth for the first time at Thanksgiving. I normally like the look of the wood, so I use placemats as needed- but I'm too lazy to iron them.

  3. I love ironing, as well. Are those your Ikea towels?

  4. This is actually a very zen way for me to pass the time...and I am always so pleased with the results!

  5. You have to become skillful in making use of different graphic developing
    computer application for example Adobe In-design, Photoshop, Corel Draw etc to carry through the graphic developing jobs completely.

    Today, on the internet planet offers an extensive range of earning the possiblility to the actual motivated students.
    Sometimes people can get caught up in the competitive element of a game (getting to the next level,
    for example) at the expense of really thinking about and internalizing the lessons.
