cabin & corral…

“To me, homesteading is the solution of all poverty’s problems, but I realize that temperament has much to do with success in any undertaking, and persons afraid of coyotes and work and loneliness had better let ranching alone. At the same time, any woman who can stand her own company, can see the beauty of the sunset, loves growing things, and is willing to put in as much time at careful labor as she does over the washtub, will certainly succeed; will have independence, plenty to eat all the time, and a home of her own in the end.”  Elinor Pruitt Stewart, Letters of a Woman Homesteader (1914)

    Great quote, and probably as true now as it was then in 1914!

        I especially liked the part about woman who can stand their own company….in today’s age it seems most people do not like silence, and must be logged in on their phone all day. It’s no wonder some kids aren’t socialized, and people don’t talk to each other…or sit and listen to the voice in their head! LOL, guess I am just old fashioned.
