Ramblings

Sunday, May 12, 2013

What would it be like to live back in the olden days. You know, make our own bread, grow our own veggies... I don't want to slaughter my own meat - thats a step too far. But, what would it be like? Get up in the morning and gather the eggs from the chickens, come inside and start baking a loaf of bread. Then I would go outside and tend to my garden for awhile. When my vegetables are ready to be harvested, I would bring them inside. Items that could be preserved for meals later in the year when the crops are no longer in season. I could eat a healthy diet, that is mine that I grew all by myself. I knew what was in my food and eating healthy would be the convenience.
As crazy as that sounds, that is my dream... I want to live like that. I want to live simpler. I want a clothes line to dry my clothing in the spring time. I just want to return to a simpler time to enjoy living a simpler way.

    I don't think it would be too bad. I grew up on a farm pretty close to that - we just didn't make our own bread. Kind of a been there, done that, want to go back to it kind of thing...

    I hate to burst your bubble, but it is a lot harder than you think.
