In earlier American rural life, communities raised barns because many hands were required. These events occured in a social framework with a good deal of interdependence. Members of rural communities often shared family bonds going back generations. They traded with each other, worshipped with each other and celebrated with each other. Barn raisings were an integral part of life and socializing.

In our modern American life, communities don't mean nearly as much as they did back then. It is our family's goal to bring a sense of community back to our lives and those lives that touch ours.

Clean House

I am finally off of bed rest and what do I do? Take a hike? No. Go on a drive to the beautiful mountains? No. Go shopping? No. I clean house. How fun is that?! Actually, it has been quite lovely to have a really clean house. Between Meme, Hubby and myself we have kept things clean, but not that deep down, super organized, purge the house of unneeded items kind of clean. The papers are now under control. I cleaned the hair off the beater bar thingy in the vaccum so that it works better now. The floors have been vacuumed, even under the couch. Behind the toilet was scrubbed (ew, thanks for doing that, Hubby). I feel much better now.

  1. Us too! How does it get so out of control. The hair on the vacuum took me a good 10 minutes. Seriously good argument for short hair.
    So glad to hear you're up and about. Now get out!
