Six Generations


Six Generations living on the Homestead (that includes Little Shadow,she's here as much as her home),and it all began here. A one room cabin. Until the late 1950's there was a kitchen built separate from the cabin. They did this in case of a fire. My Grandparents then built another home 2 houses up ,later that property was sold and then house torn down. I remember it, 2 bedrooms,l.r. and a kitchen. Not sure why but the second bedroom you had to go out on the front porch to go into it. There was no door inside to get into it.
Then my Dad built the home I grew up in, and Our home .Funny how things turn out,at one time my Family owned all the property on our street, and 1/2 of the next st. And how Dh and I ended up owning what is most Important to me , we own the property where it all begin ,in the one room cabin and my Parents home and ours. My Family has always lived Green before we knew what green living was. The Simple Side of life has always been a way of life for me,DH thats another story.lol At first he wasn't so sure he'd enjoying living here, today we were talking and we both agreed ed Life doesn't get any better than this! Sure we have life's trails and troubles but we have so much freedom to do as we wish.
Its a joy to do as the Generations before me did teach the younger Generations our Simple ways .We Love when Our Little Shadow is here and teaching her about Nature, gardening, all the Simple side of life ways. This yr. she was old enough to help me pick "WILD FOOD" wild greens, violets, dandelion blooms to cook and can. I think she loved it as much as I did:o)
She Loves to help me cook from scratch, she even enjoys cleaning ! Hmmmm....Wonder how long that will last?lol
I love this time of yr. rebirth of everything ,I often think I was born 100 yrs. to late. I reflect back over Sweet memories of Family and wonder what they would think of how we are carrying on their ways.
I hope you have a lot of Happy,Sweet memories to reflect back on.:o)
Hope ya'll have a great wk.end!

I read or heard... that the extra bedroom on the porch was built that way so if a traveler was passing and needed a place to stay... they got the room on the porch...

Anyway, I think it is so wonderful that you still have the cabin in your property...

My aunt used to collect buildings ... she had the old one room school house moved onto her property... and she had one of those kitchens moved onto her property... I just love history......

Oh my, Lib, that was so interesting to learn...you are very blessed indeed to be living on land where generations of your family have lived. That is just so awesome!! Your ancestors would be so proud of you for continuing to live the simple life and how wonderful that you're also teaching your little shadow to do so:-) xoxo
