Snow Day

Yesterday was a snow day, as in we got hit with 12 inches of snow in 24 hours. For Iowa, that’s a lot. The good part is that Linda decided not to chance driving in to work and stayed home. It was great having her home.

Wednesday is one of my normal ‘busy housewife’ days where I had a lot to do around the house besides working on my business. I decided as soon as I got up that even with Linda home, I was just going to go about my day as normal. That meant showing and changing into one of my maid dresses before eating breakfast. Normally Linda has left the house before I am dressed for the day. She is not a breakfast person and just grabs a cup of juice or coffee and hits the road. So she doesn’t normally get to see me dressed for my daily chores. Knowing she would be there to see me all day, I went all out and put on make-up and styled my hair. I said good morning to her as I walked through the kitchen on the way to the laundry room to start the first load. She replied with “my, you nice this morning. Is this how you work everyday?”

I told her that I always make sure I am dressed for work before eight, then went about my duties. I cleaned up the kitchen table after she had finished and asked if I could get her anything. She said that she would be working out of the office today and for me to bring her coffee there. So began my day.

I went about my normal cleaning and laundry, fixed a chef salad for us for lunch, and prepared a casserole for supper. I would stop by the office every now and then to see if she needed anything. It was pretty much a typical day for me, but it went so much faster having her there and knowing that she was really seeing me in my maid/housewife role. I am glad it wasn’t one of my heavy cleaning days because there is nothing sexy about seeing me clean toilets or scrubbing floors.

At bed time she gave me a big hug and kiss and told me how much she appreciates the hard work I do for her and us. That is all of the pay I need. I love my role!

Your blog is just wonderful. The pictures are super. You have great legs! Most women would die to have them!

Are your glasses feminine or unisex?

Are you worried about driving when you are dressed? What if you get pulled over?

Hi phred,
Thanks for responding. I love to hear from people reading my blog. And thanks for the kind comments about my legs (I am rather proud of them).
My eyeglasses are unisex. I had a great time picking them out. The clerk kept trying to lead me over to the men's frames and I kept going back to the women's frames. I finally woke up and realized that I couldn't go totally femine because I still have to appear in male role most of the time in public. So I settled on the unisex frames.
I have been stopped while driving enfemme (I have a heavy foot). I didn't try to deceive him, just handed him my license. He was taken by surprised when he saw my male name and photo, did a bit of a double take while looking from the license to me. And he let me go with only a warning to slow down. I'll bet if I had been in male garb I would have gotten the ticket!
Please stop back regularly.
