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.

Sunday Blahs

   Today was not especially a good day for whiny reasons that I will not bore you with. This evening things turned around a bit. Mostly because Hubby came home. When he comes through the door at the end of his work day, it's like everything that went wrong during the day just fades away. At any rate, not a whole lot was accomplished today on my part. Hubby came home and fixed the wobble in our bedroom ceiling fan, so now it can be on more than just the low setting without sounding like it's going to shimmy off the ceiling in our sleep. He also figured out that the fans were all still on their winter settings and made them spin the right way, which immediately started cooling the house down. He tried to fire up the a/c, but discovered the blower is broken. My Hubby knows that when I get hot, I get cranky and ornery. This is one of the main reasons we moved out of Arizona six years ago. Keep me cool, keep me happy. I hate heat, it makes me angry. It's really probably my biggest fault. Now I feel good, relaxing under the ceiling fan with a sleeping Hubby by my side.
