Heritage Day 2010

What a glorious day!  My sweet husband drove me out to the Southampton Agriculture and Forestry Museum's Heritage Village for their annual Heritage Day event.  The weather was perfect, the displays were simple and homey and comforting, and I felt alive with hope and health.  For this, I am so very thankful...

Forestry wagon
Having a chat with the goats
Blacksmithing 
Making soap
Doing laundry
Pumping cold water...
...into the Dairy House to keep milk cold
Canning 
Cottage kitchen
Cottage sewing corner
Washstand 
Doctor's office
General store


Church pews
The time of business does not differ with me from the time of prayer; 
and in the noise and clatter of my kitchen, 
while several persons are at the same time calling for different things, 
I possess God in as great tranquility as if I were on my knees.
Brother Lawrence
