The Way Grandma Used To...
This is a photo of my grandmother when she was just 19 years old. This is a woman who was born just after the Great Depression started and who was raised before electric or indoor plumbing were common in all homes. She was a country girl and even now can share so much wisdom from days gone by that I cherish time spent chatting with her.
When I write these "The Way Grandma Used To..." I am speaking of a whole generation of women, not just my grandmother, though many of the stories come from information she has shared with me. I feel a certain romantisized nostalgia for the simpler times when things were done the old fashioned way. Enjoy reading some of these memories and posts I have done with grandma in mind.
