Domestic Life

Domestic Life

I recently went through a museum with my husband and son. They have been on a six year tour of Texas, going from place to place soaking in as much history as they possibly can. I’ve enjoyed about 75% of it.

On this day it was more like 4%, so when I saw this particular quote, I nearly lost it. The same could be said for modern Texas, although I think the oxen have been taken out of the equation. Still pondering how the oxen pulled that off, oh well.

I’m enjoying Texas through the eyes of men.

  1. Haha! In French class in school up here in Canada we end up reading a lot of books about “Les Filles du Roi” – the Kings Daughters – basically orphan or poor girls of marrying age who chose to come to New France (1600s) to marry the settlers (ie: live in the middle of nowhere with some stranger, possibly raising the kids from the last wife who most likely died from exhaustion, and tend a farm). The books always tried to make it sound all noble and romantic. I never really bought it. It sounded awful!

    • Louise, you and I see past the romance and see it for what it truly was, in both areas of the world, lot’s of hard work. Although, I can fantasize about how it must have felt to take a leap of faith and travel by boat for hundreds of miles to meet a stranger, but after I do that I’m left with..he probably stunk really bad and needed help. πŸ™‚
