I took a little break from the documentary series "Wartime Farm" to celebrate the Fourth of July weekend. I watched the third episode yesterday and enjoyed every minute of it. This episode taught me more about how the country people of Great Britain handled hard times during the war. I was impressed how they made roof tiles and built a kiln. It even had a glimmer of how they made some medicinal moonshine!
There was information on how they made warm quilts filled with feathers. I just can't say enough how informative this series it to someone like me. I love all the old ways of doing things and how they made their lives the best that they could during that time. I find so many little bits of information that I can incorporate in my life now. This episode touched me most because they celebrated Christmas and the community came together. It really made me think about how Christmas present has become so impersonal and materialistic.
If you are interested in watching the third episode, I'd love to hear what you think about this series. It's really exciting to me to watch these people recreate war time on a farm.
