I found this old picture of my mother with my oldest sister. This would have probably been taken while my Dad was still overseas but not certain. It just struck me as how simple but hard things were back then.



A Winter’s Day From Long Ago

By: Fee


A little old clapboard house

A chilly winter’s day

Wash and housework done

Now its time for a little play

So come on Little Mabel

Climb up into your sleigh

Let’s walk down the lane

Now what do you say

We’ll stop at Aunt Annie’s

For a nice cup of tea

Oh what a life it is

For my baby and me…

You capture the memory well in just a few simple lines of well placed words. Well done. I agree that it was simple and hard at the same time. Just getting enough to eat was an issue for my gramma and my Mom.
Cheers J'nia

Yes, harder lives back then. People seemed stronger back then, no? We're so pampered now. I had no power for 2 1/2 days just now, due to freezing rain. I got a taste of old fashioned life; cooking soup over a woodstove, using the light of day, and keeping warm by the fire. They must have treasured books back then! Great write, Fee.

Very sweet. The wash on the line reminds me of my dad's frozen long johns--my mom would put them by the heater in the parlor to dry. They were so frozen they stood alone.
Your picture is a treasure.

There's such beauty and peace in simplicity, and it's there we find the real things that matter in life-you showed this here, a wonderful dedication to your family. I love the old photo, but then, i have a thing for old photos, lol.

A nice moment to capture both in photograph and in words. Times were much simpler, and even though difficult, they would be welcome in these crazy times that we face. Nice piece of nostalgia Fee! Hugs, Elizabeth

Now Fee, I like very much when you go all sentimental, romantic and take care of the past before internet squashes everything out of our memory.

We seem to have so many things going on at once. It's nice to reflect about the good old days. I am an amateur genealogist, and I love to look at old photos like that one.
