|My Great Grandma, probably taken around the early 1900's|
One of my favorite series of books is the Laura Ingalls Wilder books and yes I do still occasionally read them. I always joke and tell my husband that if a disaster happens and we have to live in the woods to not worry as he will have a cross between Laura and MacGyver with him!
Although I love blogging, computers and social media, I think that if I was transported back in time about a hundred and fifty years there is not much technology that I would miss, except maybe for the advances in medicine. I could even make do with outhouses, but I probably wouldn't be very happy about them at 5am on a winter morning. I imagine that I would be a pioneer wife and mom with just enough money and resources to get by ~ I can't see myself being any type of socialite with family money. In the interest of days gone by I found another family photo from the past, it is not from the era that I am speaking of but taken around the early 1900's. One of my projects is to start scanning the old family photos ~ along with the history of when & who is in the pictures. Someday........
Until Someday ~ Happy Cooking,
