Time is Flying By

Did I say I was going to make this a positive blog?  Well, it is hoped that most everything will be positive, but real.

Life is so hectic.  I just looked at the first post this year, which turned out to be on January 1.  Well, that is good.  Today is the 16th as I write. Better than it could have been as far as timing goes.  Lots has happened.  Some successes, some not so much.  Most recently I have been adding to my paper crafting knowledge.  There is so much information on YouTube that, with practice, most anyone should be able to create nice cards and other paper items.

This blog will be about the life of an older country woman, as you might imagine.  Things that might be included will be cooking, sewing, knitting, housecleaning(though not much of that, I expect!!), family history work, etc.  Continue reading “The Country Wife Starts Blogging with WordPress!”

Why “The Country Wife”

Why “The Country Wife”

Years ago, soon after we started raising children, my husband, a school teacher at the local junior/senior high school, noticed that the farm kids at school were the best citizens of the school, i.e. they contributed the most in positive ways…taking part in extra-curricular activities, studying hard, treating other students decently. He thought it must have something to do with their upbringing as farmers’ children. He wanted the same for our children. He had been born in the city and I had been raised on a dairy farm in central Vermont.
