I'm a LONG way from being Anne or a Mennonite. I don't like to sew, and I'm quite lazy when it comes to weeding my garden. I also LOVE the Internet for its access to information. Maybe I should just stick to living in this 150year old house with its modern amenities, hang my laundry, raise my chickens and wear my aprons.
I suppose I COULD do it if I had to. After all, back then people helped each other with certain things. The women did not do it ALL on their own. They shared their resources and what they were good at. So maybe a modern colony IS what I need?
A MUST for my colony???
That was the entire point of this post...To show you the peonies on the table and how they make me happy. I suppose I could have just said that. I think I've had too much coffee. Anyway, off to feed chickens and smell the flowers.
