  1. I just read your post on Laura Ingalls Wilder and her thoughts on homekeeping. I love it :) Have you read her book, Little House in the Ozarks: The Rediscovered Writings? It's a collection of many of her farm wife articles; edited by Stephen W. Hines. It is terrific. I'm thinking maybe you've already read it, to have found some of the Wilder quotes you use . . . Anyway, thanks for sharing about her. She is one of my favorites :)
