She cooked and cleaned and canned the produce of the garden.
by helping prepare vegetables and observing.
They were sent to the basement to bring up potatoes
or the back room to get canned goods.
Each was responsible for their bedroom and a living room
or dining room or bathroom as assigned.
These became daily chores when school was out for the summer.
Beds were made and sinks scoured daily.
And watching the loading of the canner
and hearing the lids pop when the jars came out.
and made him comfortable.
When the children had the mumps and measles and chicken pox
they were babied and loved back to health.
And she had lots of favorite sayings. Mostly was "it takes two to tango".
We could not get away with saying it was the other persons fault!
