House—Impatient for Spring to Arrive
By BLANCHE SPANN PEASE
April already! Goodness how
time does fly! Seems only yester
day I was putting together the
February Frontier Woman issues
and here it is April. Folks are
thinking about early gardens,
how to keep up with those smart
Smiths, and wondering where so

Dear Mrs. Pease:
Today seemed like a long day.
The thermometer stayed around
zero and on such days as this I
like to write letters.

moisture will be welcome to the

new seed catalogs have given me
fhe urge to start planting. But
dreaming is about all one can do
for the next little while.
The cookies I promised myself
we’d have for a week, really ma
terialized this afternoon. I used
my favorite cookie recipe and put
in a handful of black walnuts
and raisins. We had rice, some
cold sliced pork, apple sauce and
fresh cookies for supper.
We canned the surplus squash
last week and will use it as a
vegetable or pie later on. Corn
bread and cabbage will make a
meal, some day when it’s cold,
and it’s full of vitamins, too.
I am embroidering some dish
towels I stamped a year ago. I am
glad to have them these cold
days to fill jn the long hours.
I took advantage of these cold
aays to defrost the refrigerator.
I stored the frozen packages on
the back porch and shut the ice
