Domestic Service

Danae enjoys making Michael’s home life streamlined and satisfying. Domestic service is one of her favorite ways to serve him as she enjoys all things domestic: cooking, entertaining, crafts, DIY, decorating and even cleaning. All those things serve Michael.

From my favorite resource Home Comforts: The Art & Science of Keeping a House by Cheryl Mendelson:

“It is scarcely surprising then, that so many people imagine housekeeping to be boring, frustrating, repetitive, unintelligent drudgery. I cannot agree. Each of its regular routines brings satisfaction when it is completed.  These routines echo the rhythm of life, and the housekeeping rhythm is the rhythm of the body. You get satisfaction not only from the sense of order, cleanliness, freshness, peace and plenty restored, but from the knowledge that you yourself and those you care about are going to enjoy these benefits.”
