Are we still penpals with each other? I haven't heard from you in a long while. Why didn't you attend the sewing circle this week? Were you at home skinning fish with your mother? That's what Francisca said. She doesn't really seem to enjoy sewing circles very much.
Today we had such a large dinner! Chicken pudding, fried ham with gravy, sweet potatoes and apples, baked pumpkin pudding, lemon-tomato soup and Mrs. Larson's savory stew.
Well, I must go practice my mandolin.
