Mrs. R.C.W, from Jasper County, doesn't mince words about any "drudge' wife who can't find the time for pleasures during the day and blames "a lack of management, lack of order and lack of backbone and brains" as the source. Well, we all can learn from that, probably!
She definitely hopes for a farmer son-in-law someday; someone who gives her daughter a home on a farm, perhaps just like the one where she is growing up..."with all the joys and pleasures of an American home in God's wonderful out-of-doors."
The blocks today both reflect one of my personal favorite things about county living, and that is visits from my feathered friends to the bird feeders. I love to watch the darting antics of all the different species, especially in the winter after a snowstorm.
Block 27-Darting BirdsOnce in a while, a sharp eyed hawk will swoop down to try and snatch up an unsuspecting little bird perched on my feeder.
Block 52-Hovering HawksThe first time I witnessed a successful catch, it was a little dismaying and I was more than glad that one of my grand daughters wasn't watching at the window with me as feathers fell to the ground. But, then, that's the circle of life, especially in the country.
Be sure to visit Cindy today and read her thoughts on the charming life of a farmer! I can't wait to see her blocks...always so different from mine!
