hello and welcome to Friday night I hope
you’re having a really good day and it’s
evening time and I’m gonna share with
you something really special today I’m
gonna share with you a little story I’m
gonna show you my love for books you
know what the saying is don’t ever judge
a book by it’s cover you know that’s
really true the books that I love my
favorite books are very bland in fact
they have no excitement whatsoever if it
illustrates playing bucks but I’m going
to share with you a story a little bit
about my love for books and how that all
started age 22 I had a five year old and
my children attended a small Mennonite
school and I was the youngest mother
there I didn’t like school very much in
fact I didn’t like school at all but
when my a child my oldest was five years
old
I would take her to school and I would
pick her up and the waiting area was a
library as I would wait I would look at
all the books on the shelves and I would
start to admire them for when I was a
little girl school wasn’t very important
to me but as a young mom I wanted to
learn at the time the librarian was in
her 70s one day she saw me looking at
the books and she said Theresa would you
like to take a book home I never thought
about taking a book home but I thought
what a great idea
so as the children would take out their
books at the library
so would I I took out books that talked
about history and learning things those
years that my children went to school I
also went to school
in the library I ended up doing a lot of
work for the librarian in organizing the
books and it started me with a love and
passion for reading now all the books
that I read are nonfiction I really
don’t have time for books that really
aren’t true not really too much into the
novel romance books everything that I
read is about things that happened in
life or things that teach a lot of
people say I should have been a teacher
you know in some ways I was a teacher
being a young mom with three small
children I raised and taught them and I
learned with them so I did teach but my
classroom was really small then by the
time they reached sixth grade I
homeschooled my children they wanted to
be homeschooled and it was a fun
opportunity to spend even more time with
my children I was a farm wife for many
years and those years spending with my
children are years that I will always
treasure my favorite books I’m going to
share with you today are just very
ordinary books but they live
extraordinary in me because there are
homesteading books hole-making books
from the 50s and the 60s this cookbook I
love called the attic cookbook all of
these cookbooks are very old but my
favorite books of all are the home eck
books it’s sad where has it all gone the
home at classes of the 50s in my home
xbox it teaches you everything from how
to save money to how to have that
perfect meal to how to wash your
clothing how to take care of children
these home making books are very cheap
you can buy them used on Amazon or
thread books but it talks about
nutrition it talks about the old ways of
living economy cookbook from 1948 was
one of the very first books that I got
that was very old 1948
the economy cookbook it just talks about
everyday foods and a lot of you remember
the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook
almost every mother or every grandmother
had a book like this and these are from
the 50s and 60s I love the old ones this
brings back a lot of memories I hope
you’re enjoying my videos of my memories
and I’m hoping that you enjoy all of the
things that I’m going to be sharing with
you I can’t wait till tomorrow evening
to share with you a little more and
Sunday I’m going to be sharing even a
lot more about a direction that my
channel is going you know there’s
something about a book paging through
the pages smelling a book it just brings
the senses so many times we are living
in this electronic world where
everything is with a touch of a button
we can find any book or anything we wish
just by swiping on the iPad but there’s
so much we’re missing in the written
word and the written book we are missing
all these beautiful treasures paging
through a book that’s decades old it’s
something that our children are not
learning they don’t understand the
written word and the power of the
written word in book form so I hope I
inspired you a little bit in learning
about the history of the world that we
live in and learning about how our
mothers and our grandmothers our aunts
how they had their households how they
lived their life what did they learn
what did they do
history can come alive all we have to do
is open the book and read
this book I subscriber gave me called
housekeeping in old Virginia and what a
treasure it is housekeeping in old
Virginia the foods are quite odd some of
them but when you didn’t have grocery
stores or the internet you didn’t have
the quite the selection of food that he
did then this was one of my earliest
books the growing year and this was
written by a woman who had a cottage and
every single month she wrote a chapter
and she shared her life in written form
many people asked me if I do what my
grandma Fanny did if I write in a diary
no I haven’t done that but I am putting
all of my videos I’m putting them all on
CDs for my grandchildren someday because
we can always have the new but we always
hold on to the old and somewhere along
their line in the middle is perfection
a little bit of old a little bit of new
and together it makes it complete so I
don’t know what you’re doing this
evening other than watching my video
after my video why don’t you turn off
your internet and open a book and sit
and read you might be surprised what you
learn take care of one we’ll see you
guys tomorrow hmm
apple vinegar I want to make that I
didn’t know you plant pumpkins that way
that’s really interesting
you mean grandma had to set the iron on
the coal stove to get it hot oh my
goodness such work that our order
ancestors had to do hmm
raising small animals rabbits that’s
something I could learn how to skin a
muskrat oh I don’t think I’ll be
learning that not anytime soon
boil linens and lemon to make your
linens white and crisp I think that
sounds like a video
you

    Hi Tessie sis.

    I have loved books since I was small and would go to the library whenever possible.

    In the late 60s I had a Home Ec class, but we didn't have any books. We learnd how to sew on a machine, bake cookies and other things. There was never any mention of being a housewife, which was fine with me.

    It is sad that they don't have classes regarding actual economics these days. People don't know how to save money and are in a lot of debt. You're right, they should bring back more of the older ways of doing things, the more simple ways, because they worked!πŸ’œ

    OMG Tessie I LOVED this video!
    They have been bringing back Home Economics classes in area high schools for ALL students. Topics covered are making a budget, balancing a checkbook/debit card, cooking, basic cooking, nutrition, preserving foods, They also have FFA (Future Farmers of America) and 4H groups in area schools.

    Being longtime homeschoolers and having done home school conferences, math, science, history were incorporated into our day to day lifestyle. And we still have groups we are involved in that use a lot of the ideas the Foxfire and the Storey Publishing companies guides. Do you have any of those?

    We also have a home library and for decades have has a serious monthly book budget for NON fiction books. Have never been a fiction reader,

    Do you have a copy of Jennifer McGruther's book
    The Nourished Kitchen: Farm-to-Table Recipes for the Traditional Foods Lifestyle Featuring Bone Broths, Fermented Vegetables, Grass-Fed Meats, Wholesome Fats, Raw Dairy, and Kombuchas OR Sally Fallon's book Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and Diet Dictocrats? If not I may have extra copies since I gift them to friends.

    I'm the youngest in my family and my older brother would buy me books as a child. He gave me such a gift; the gift of loving to read. I enjoy home economics books; learning how to follow a recipe (a great way to teach kids math); how to clean efficiently; creative and inexpensive ways to decorate and make a home. Love your channel, Tessie and God bless you and your family.

    I really enjoy my books. I have some from the days of my youth. Others from my college days and others still from my working various industries, companies, and jobs in my life. I even have books that are 200 to 100 years old and I cherish them the most because it shows how far we have come form a matter of opinion verses scientific proof. Cook books are my favorite because they do bring back memories of the foods that I have eaten as a child.

    Books can take you places if you allow your imagination to run freely. And as you can see if have a vivid imagination. LOL LOL πŸ™‚

    I have always loved books. I would read Christian fiction, non fiction, history, anything I could learn from. I have homeschooled my son since kindergarten until now. He will graduate in June and that makes me sad BUT he and I have a relationship that is something. Even though I face daily challenges with my health he is still very protective of me. I use to feel guilty about that but he told me, β€œmama, you protected me when I was little, I want to show you I learned to love from you.” I guess I did ok. We still learn together. Reading about old ways is so fun. It makes me look forward to the day we can get our homestead. We are saving now for that. I look forward to simple. That to me is my happy place. Have a great night Tessie. God bless you.

    Awesome advise, Tessie. Put down the electronics and pick up a good book! I also homeschooled my kids. I wanted them to have a great love for learning and reading. I'm in the middle of an awesome book, titled "The Oracle" by Johnathan Cahn. It's based on prophecies of which many have already come true. And before that I read "Sevek" about a little boy who survived the Holocaust. He watched most of his family die before they were liberated. I already have a long list of books I hope to read next. Nothing like a cup of tea and a good book. God bless you Tessie, and much love.πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ•ŠπŸ’—πŸ•ŠπŸ’—

    I love old books! Especially the housekeeping books. We have so many convenience items today that we are so distanced from our own homes. I have a copy of a poem somewhere that's about how you know how your neighbors are doing based on the laundry on the line. And even the act of choosing produce instead of canned or frozen food can connect you to what you are eating. I love that!

    Oohh, I liked this one Tessie! ☺️ I love to read my Bible, books about the old pioneers, cookbooks, and books about different countries that I'll probably never get to see (except for Canada. Been there 5 times during my childhood)
    I took Home Economics my Freshman year of high school, and I loved it! I remember we learned how to make sauerbraten, and it was so delicious!
    When I was homeschooling my daughter, 2000 – 2007, my neighbor at the time was getting rid of an Encyclopedia set from the 1960's, and I snatched them up mighty quick! LOL They sure came in handy when you needed to look something up. We didn't have internet or cell phones until 2011, so those old books were a great resource!

    Hi, Tessie, thank you for sharing, we share this deep interest, too. I’ve some old housekeeping and gardening books, I love. They inspire me, to keep it simple, they tell me about old times, teach me and give me peace and rest. In the last years, here in Germany some people had the idea of 'open book shelfs', there you can get rid of books you don’t need anymore and you can take books you’d like to read. No costs. Wonderful A lot of people throw their books away, they have their kindle…even thrift shops don’t take books anymore…they have too many already and nobody seems to care about them. That’s quite sad. I saw my first library at the age of 10 remember this paradise-like feeling there and never stopped going there until today. And until today I try to inspire people to read and use the public library. Love, Monika❣️

    I love books too. I’ve picked up several older cookbooks at yard sales. While I do read some online, I just love the tactile sense of holding a book and turning its pages. And the smell of books! I have a hard time parting with books and they take up a lot of space in my home as do binders of collected recipes and other diy information.

    Lovely video! Books are awesome. I also love the home ec books from the fifties and sixties. So much practical information. Reading on the Kindle just isn't the same. I like holding the book and turning pages. I'm still looking for one I used in school, it was late seventies, but the book itself was from 60's. It had three recipes for dry shampoo in it. I would love to have it again. Have a restful Saturday.

    I have a old cookbook it came from my Husband's Grandma from the 1800's. Larkins product had a little cookbook but what's interesting is it tells you how hot to get your wood cookstove. Larkin product was like they sold their name brand baking ingredients. That's what I was told. It is a shame they don't teach Home economies any more.😒Good video!

    Wonderful video, Tessie ! There's nothing like Vintage books ! I would love to get that book, 'Housekeeping in Old Virginia' , since I am in Virginia. I found a canning book @ a yard sale that shows the old methods of canning, before they used pressure canners. It even shows canning in 1/2 gallon jars.

    Oh, I totally agree; reading an ebook just holds no comparison to turning the pages of a BOOK.

    Love Home Ec books, they have so much information and it's fun to see how things were done before..it seems like some schools are forgetting to teach the fundamental life skills everyone needs, ps who's "bright" idea was it to stop teaching cursive writing in schools?! guess we'll never get hand written cards again….sad, glad I am "old" thanks again Tessie for all your wonderful, helpful videos, we need more people like you in the world, it would be a far better place <3

    I also love ole home economics books. They need to teach this in schools again. It's very important. Things seem to be so mixed up in this world. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Tessie! I watch your channel everyday. I really like it. I hope young people watch this channell so they can learn the things that are truly important.{How to run a household} etc. I took home economics for years in school. Now everythings different.

    A lot of vintage cookbooks have hints and tips (what we'd call hacks). It's never to late to learn. Be proud of yourself. I home schooled my son in middle and high school. He has special needs but is more level headed and mature than most 21 year olds.

    I love books! When I go to someone’s home and I see no books I have to wonder about them. Lol I homeschooled for 20 years. I read every book my children read before I let them read it. I wanted to make sure it was appropriate. I learned so much when I homeschooled. History, that didn’t interest me as a child, really came alive. I loved it. I miss it.

    One thing my dad did. And did right. Was instill in me a love of books. My dad was a dumpster diver back before it was fashionable. My first and second bicycle, my second bicycle was brand new. I often wonder what the circumstances were that caused it to be thrown in a dumpster.
    My dad took three boxes out of a library dumpster.
    These were books of every style and description. He found one bookcase, and built another. We had books in our house at all times. Dad took paperback detective novels, in the garage. Thinking they might be a bit much for a child's taste. I got my first introduction to Earle Stanley Gardner, of Perry Mason Fame, I made the acquaintance of John D MacDonald, one of the greatest Minds ever to put pen to paper. This is where we disagree, politely, Tessie! Fiction introduces you to human interactions. Thoughts, Concepts, extremes! Without fiction, Robin Williams would have had no Outlet to express himself. He never wrote any fiction himself. But he brought people to life. His performances will live forever.
