The Old Ways

I love to live my life the old way. The way grandma did! #TexasHomesteader

OK I’ll admit it: I really love doing things the old-fashioned way. I mean, how did our grandmothers get so SMART? They certainly didn’t learn this stuff off of the internet, but somehow they just knew…

I love to do things the way my grandmother did, like planting a large garden each year & canning to preserve what we can’t eat fresh.  I feel her presence as I hang laundry under the brilliant blue skies and watch the sheets wave lazily in the breeze. I hear her wisdom when I make from scratch our meals, hand soap, yogurt and cleaning supplies.

Sometimes I think I must have been born about 100 years too late because I love the simple lifestyle, just like grandma did!

    Personally, I believe that I should have been born in the 1800’s back when neighbors meant the difference between life and death and they cared about each other. For now, I will just live as simply as I can away from the idiocacy of the big city mentalities.

      Yes Marlies I agree. I know it takes action on both sides to form that neighborly bond but try as I may I was never able to attain it when I lived in the big city (although I know others have) Since moving out here I’ve found a sense of community that I’ve longed for all my life! I totally relate to your belief you should have been born in the 1800’s – ME TOO! 1880’s are my favorite decade – no small wonder that when I saw this property had an 1880’s barn still standing our decision was made as to what property we would purchase to begin our new lives! Thanks for sharing. ~TxH~
