I hope you enjoy reading "Freda's Thoughts" today. She writes this post about her family wood cookstove.
Keep in mind, as you read, that Freda is Almanzo Wilder's 92 year old cousin. Even though she was born years after Almanzo, her family lived much as his did. This will give you a glimpse into "Pioneer" life.
The kitchen of the home was the meeting place for family and friends. The wood cookstove served as heat for the home, as well as the source of heat for cooking and baking. But in the hot weather, it could be a source of mild torture!
If you are enjoying Freda's posts, please leave a comment, here on the blog site, to encourage her. Thanks!
