This week's farmer's wife is from Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
And this week, I'll admit that I'm not much in the mood for writing about what this Pennsylvania farmer's wife has to say. Some days are just like that, I guess. She writes extensively about her role as a farmer's wife, about the many tasks she needs to attend to, the labor-saving devices she has in her home, and the amusements that are more varied in the country than in the city.
I'm sure she spends some of her time filling baskets with produce grown on her farm.
And perhaps spends time looking in the sky and occasionally sees a falling star.
#78 Shooting Star
Tonight, for some reason, I'm just tired and so I will leave you with this quote from the letter:
"Too often we forget that work is a blessing God as given us; that He meant each of us to be a producer--not to be content with doing less than our share. Life is what we make it and the busy person is always a happy one." ...or sometimes just a tired one...
All of the basket blocks so far:
Carla's thoughts on this week's letter, and her blocks, which are guaranteed to have some cheerful fabric.
