In those days, women made whatever was good and never minded how tedious the process, but now we live in a short-cut age. But house-keeping is fun, and I think that women hate it lack imagination. It is one job where you enjoy the results right along as you work. You may work all day washing and ironing, but at night you have the delicious feeling of sunny clean sheets and airy pillows to lie on. If you clean, you sit down at nightfall with the house shining and smelling faintly of wax, all yours to enjoy right then and there. And if you cook - ah, if you cook - that creation you lift from the oven goes right to the table. One way to look at it, of course, is that the women's work is never ended, and I have heard housekeepers say they hate to make cakes because they are eaten right up anyway. You can make it drudgery f you want to, but it isn't. And it isn't monotonus either, for no day is ever really the same. Lucky the women who has a home and can live in what she is creating!"
