Gleaning from the past for a more simple future in our 1950s cottage.

She was home sick from school that day, but I was able to get her some fresh air as we visited the new baby goat at a neighbor's farm.
So pale, but all smiles! What a trooper!

It's Not Just Cats....
Who lay on top of one's knitting!
This is Duncan, by the way. He is a Cairn Terrier mix that we picked up from the shelter last June.

Snowed In Schoolhouse
This is our first "over a footer" snowstorm of this winter season.
When I was growing up, these weren't very newsworthy.
2 feet of snow was more typical with blizzards of 3-4 feet in places being big news.
Regardless, having everything covered in a fresh layer of snow is simply beautiful and peaceful.
I love looking out of my living room window at the old one-room schoolhouse across the street. No matter the season, it is a beautiful site.
In two more months there will be yellow daffodils around the foundation.
Today, it gets a blanket of snow.

Who Is Mildred Rothwood?
In the absence of a penpal, I have begun a creative writing blog called:
Mrs. Mildred Elizabeth Rothwood is my fictional penpal to whom I write of my daily goings-on and thoughts, as I would a real penpal.
Mrs. Mildred Elizabeth Rothwood is also YOU, my readers. When you leave a comment, it is as if you are Mildred, herself writing back to me. (Unless you are a tiresome troll, in which case just don't).
