The Way Things Were

When I was a child, I read and re-read all of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books. I like how they all worked together to survive, from butchering to hunting to gathering. My own childhood had some of this in it. We were poor when I was really little. We had a wood stove for heating the…

Shifting Seasons

Things are shifting around here.  The seasons are fighting for control of the weather.  The snow melted, then it rained a lot, so the ground is seeping with water.  When I take a step, the mud squishes and water comes out of the ground.  We are trying to get our barn door repaired in this….
