My Internet friend Myfanwy said she was going to do some Monday Memory posts. I thought that was a great idea. Lots of BIG gaps in my past but it would be nice to remember tidbits each Monday so I'm going to try and join her in this journey.
One room log cabin...huge black wood stove.....icebox that we went to town to get big blocks of ice to keep things cold. Cast iron sink with a tub for washing. Learnin' to prime the pump at the well. Kettle always settin' on the back of the stove with hot water for whatever was needed. Kerosene lamps to read by at night. Old pendulum clock that ran on an 8 day cycle I think. Grampa's carvings hanging off the rafters. Mattresses piled on the bed in the corner.
A little girl who would share huge blueberries on rice krispies in her Hoppa-long Cassidy dishes in the morning while Grampa had his eggs and toast. Fresh tomatoes and leaf lettuce with sugar at lunch. Cold watermelon brought up from the well. Sweet peas and gladiolas growin' in the garden. Traps set out to catch the wood chuck's that ate the plants. Life of an innocent.
