Who hasn't needed help when doing something for the first time? And although 'they' say that mistakes are just steps towards perfection (oh, right), wouldn't it just be easier to go to your home library shelf and find a good reference book or ten? There are no Kindles or Nooks (well, maybe a nook or two) in my house. I need to have a good, solid book in my hands to make me feel like it's the place for answers. Of course, I still make all kinds of mistakes, but I think of them as steps in the right direction. That's me, Cleo, Queen of Denial.
Today's giveaway goodie is: The Encyclopedia of Country Living, by Carla Emery.
You are going to need a sturdy bookshelf for this puppy....not to mention a sturdy mailbox....
Today's comment topic: What is a skill that you would like to learn? Is there something on your homestead that needs doin' and you don't know how? Me? I'd like to learn how to make a stone fence. I have LOTS of stones.
