How can the real food revolution happen without housewives to grind grain and spices, ferment yogurt and vegetables, render fat, make noodles, bake breads and harvest vegetables from the garden and eggs from the coop?
How can pregnant women with kids get the help they need to keep their houses clean, feed their families, and get adequate rest without a local network of fellow like-minded sisters who can pitch in?
How can we return to sane business hours and holidays for all without housewives to do the shopping and bring kids to appointments during the day?

cash at the old Hancock village (Shaker) gift shop
equipment at the gift shop
beautiful spun wools and cottons with natural dyes (including a lot of alum, cream of tartar, madder, goldenrod, etc.) in the Sisters' workshouse at the Shaker village - my favourite part of Hancock!

poppies at Hancock village
a random interlude - bathtub diaper laundry
antiques near Kennebunkport - BEST ANTIQUE SHOP EVER. Stonewear beer bottles.
These things were a dime a dozen - wish I had picked one up, but I figured we'd see tons more... not the case. Would have been beautiful for brewing in.
Peter Rabbit and quilts
You, too, can be a screwball.

Lovely skillets. There was one really huge one, pizza size, but it was like $120. So sad!
I love miniature things.
This was beautiful. When we own a home I want to fill it with antiques and home-made pottery.
The baby spent a lot of the vacation making this face. There was a lot of car time, folks. (Don't get me wrong - there were lots of smiles and giggles, too!)
