  1. Farm Life

    It was a hot summer day at the farm. Everybody was working on different things. John was feeding the horses while Jimmy was sheering the sheep. Inside, Tanisha was making corn cakes and Ebin was fixing the roof. Ebin was a handy carpenter and could always fix something in two hours. If not, it was either unable to be repaired or only needed to be nailed once. He also was a great fisherman. He usually brought back many fish to eat. Other jobs he did included feeding the chickens, collecting the eggs, watering the crops collecting the crops, and many other handy jobs.

  3. Can you see me? I’m the woman in the back, next to the old house. My husband and son work at the wood mill all day long. It is my job to clean the house, cook for my family and organize our sales of lumber. On hot summer days when my husband and son are outside sweating like pigs I bring them fresh cold water to cool them down. My family lives off of our lumber sales.

    I'm the bucket, the one the only, hanging over the well. I serve an important purpose for the people on this farm. I provide an easy and simple way to get water up and down from the well. But i feel that I could serve better to a family of peasants with 7 kids, a dog, grandparents, and struggling to live on the small two meals a day they off the petty fund the father gets from twelve hours of hard labor. For a family like that I could serve a small sliver of hope knowing that they can get water each day. Or a hardworking group of slaves tired from a hard days work of picking cotton in the field or cutting grass for their mangy pathetic heap of a master, afraid to get wiped until they bled. For slaves a bucket of water could be the highlight of their day.

    The year is nearing winter and we harvest our crops. I am now accustomed to this life, hoeing, planting, finally harvesting. This is my fifth year doing these chores, and now I am to see the barrels of fruits, vegetables, and mead off to the village where I can barter them for the other essentials we need, but have not yet gained, such as fabric for blankets and clothing for the winter, and also to trade our old horses for new foals, that are able to pull a heavy wagon, as the old horses are slow to achieve this business. Slowly they trudge, up to the village where they will be sold.

  10. I am the little boy hiding in the hay in the wagon. It's a warm summer day in mid July, the eighteenth to be specific. I'm playing hide and seek with my younger brother Tom. We are both to young to fight in the war, I'm ten and he's nine. He'll never find me in this hiding spot but the is scratchy and annoying, maybe I should dig deeper into the pile.
    "Lotin, where are you?" my brother called. That's my name, Lotin. I dig head first further down int the hay pile.
    "I'm coming for you Lotin!" my brother exclaimed playfully. He must be close. I shoved my hand down into the bottom of the hay pile when it rested on something warm and hard. Metal. It was round and heavy. I wrapped my hand around the long metal pipe and pulled up. I still couldn't see in the hay but I had never felt anything like it.
    "Tommy!", I shouted, "Look at this!"
    "HA ha Lotin you dummy, I found you." I heard his foot steps coming my way. didn't care he found me I just wanted to show him my new toy I found in the hay pile. I jumped into the air with a pile of hay on my head and pulled up with me the long metal tube.
    "Look Tommy!" I said excitedly. "What do you think this is?"
    "PUT. THAT. BACK. NOW." my dad ordered from behind me.
    "Why Papa?" I asked.

    I am bill the guy on the wagon. My job is to take the milk and other products to the buyers. Life is hard because we have not a lot of time to relax. We have to wake up early and stay up late doing work. I also have to load the wagon with the products. I only have 20 minuets for lunch 40 for breakfast and 30 for dinner. That is what life is like on this farm.

    Hi. I'm Joe, the guy on the carriage with the barrels. We've been having some trouble here on the farm. We live in Mexico, and something has been killing our goats as well as other farms around here. We call it the Chupacabra. In Mexico, it translates to "goat sucker". We named it that because this creature punctures the neck of the goat and drains the blood out of the now dead goat. Last night I heard a sound in the shed where we keep our goats at night that sounded like a growl and a bark mixed together. In the morning I found Three of our goats dead...

    Hi I'm Jake. Pa says somethings has been killing our goats and sucking out their blood. His friend Joe thinks it is the Chupacabra. Our milk and cheese supply has been especially low in the past few weeks. I suggested to Pa that we bring the goats in but he said they get stronger outside. I told him they would keep dying but he didn't listen. Maybe Joe and I can do something about it...

    I wish my parents were still alive. I am not saying this for your sympathy but for your awareness. Let me explain, my first memories were of happy times. I lived with my parent in a grand house. Then one day my parents left for a journey across the sea. I was soon informed that their ship had been swept to the sea floor in a terrible storm. I was sent to live with my uncle, around that time I was about seven and sad beyond possible. I had lived peacefully with my uncle for about a year before he died mysteriously. I was overcome by grief. One of my uncles neighbors sent me to work on a farm on the outskirts of the city. The owners quickly despised me and unlike the other girls in the house sent me to work outside doing the dirty jobs on the farm. I was just eight doing all the work that the grown men disliked. Here I am four years later, still doing the dirty work. I can't say I mind spending my day outside. I try to stay positive. But I can't help thinking how much better my life could be.

    Do you ever wonder how hay gets made in to those perfectly shaped piles? Well, someone has to make them look like that, and in this case that someone's me. Everyday I take the bundles of hay and begin to stack them, being as careful as possible to make sure that everythings how it's supposed to be. The pile starts out tiny but during the day it grows and grow until it's huge. Even though hay is generally light, carrying it around all day can give you a real bad backache. I don't mean to complain or anything but there's quite a lot of less strenuous jobs for a 10 year old boy to do on a farm. For instance, the 12 year old boy Ben who also works on the farm only has to milk the cows and that takes about one hour!

    Do you see that lady hiding in the back corner of the kitchen? Well as a matter a fact that is me.And of course I'm the only one doing my chores except for my older sister Margret who is cooking us dinner, we are usually the only ones doing our chores because our parents are always working so there is no one except Margret and me to tell the youngsters what and they just say no and run outside. After we do our chores we eat dinner then do our homework and go to bed. And that is life in my house

    Hello! My name is James, and I am the little boy in the front. I am nine years old, and the oldest of the kids. Today has been just another (rather boring) day at home. Father just got home from work on the farm, after another exhausting day of digging for potatoes. Grandma has been spinning yarn all day, and mother has been baking bread, so there is simply no one to play with. I would play with my little sister, but she is to young.

    I start to sweat as the the heat of the smoke from the fire pulses at me. I'm tending our families' small corn dinner. My name is Maria and I run this crazy household. I'm the oldest caretaker, since mother is sick with Yellow Fever. It's awful quiet today though, Thomas and Victoria aren't fighting over toys like they always do. Abiel is silent rolling out dough for rolls, but she usually has gossip about hot british soldiers or the way the neighbor's girl, Carlisa, hair looked that day. My husband Cyrus is not even reading the Boston Gazette. I turn to my cousin Sarafina, who is making yarn, and I have the feeling she's confused too. I feel like they're hiding something from me but I don't know what...

    While it looks like I am just standing there doing nothing I am really supervising everyone around me. My name is Bob, and while I don't own the farm I am the one in charge. I do help out when it is needed. When help is needed I take care of the animals and cut wood. My most favorite thing to do is to take care of the animals which includes feeding them and washing them.

    I wake up at sunrise to the call of the old rooster Leaf. I change out of my pajamas into my red plaid shirt and pull my overalls over. I pull on my wool socks and slip on my black mud boots. I walk down the spiral stair case and open the fridge and pull out the egg bowl. I start a pan and scramble some eggs. I eat them and head out the door. I walk to the barn and feed the horses and cows and fill up their water trofts. I walk to the pig pen and feed them too. I go to fill up their water bucket but it is still full. I run to the end up the barn and walk out the back. I feed the sheep. After they finish eating I shear them for summer. I take their wool to the Martha our spinner. I head to the chicken coop. I grab the egg basket off the hook and open the egg box. There are 3 green eggs and 5 brown eggs. I set the eggs on the barn stairs and get the feed. I sprinkle feed on the grass. They peck away. After that it is about 5:00 pm. I head inside for dinner and then I go to bed because I know I have a big day ahead of me tomorrow.

    Hello!!! My name is Maria Vagalon. I'm not in the picture above. They are our neighbours. Anyway, me and my family live in a cottage next door to them. It's 7:00 in the morning and get dressed. Hazel and Wesley are sleeping in the cots next to me. Wesley is 16 which is 4 years older then me. He is reasonably attractive with red hair and bright green eyes. Hazel is 14, 2 years older then me (I'm 12). She is very pretty with red hair and blue eyes. Now you're probably thinking, why do we sleep in the same room? Our family does not have a lot of money. Mama and Papa sleep in a room with little Jo Jo my baby brother. I walk out of the room with.... boys clothes on. I'm supposed to be wearing a dress but I HATE dresses. I guess you could call me a tom boy. I walk out of our room and see Mama sitting by the fire in her rocking chair. She always does this when she can't sleep. "Mama, what's wrong?" Mama jumps, startled. "Oh! Maria.... oh I had no clue you were there!" Then Mama notices what I am wearing. Suddenly she is scolding me, "Oh Maria, for goodness sake get a dress on!" I slump back into my room and change.... WILL I EVER FIT IN????!!!!!!!

    The farm is all hard work. We had a good season so we can sell some of our corn or cabbage at the market.We don't gain much coin out here because we have very little land and we live a few miles away from the nearest lake but it was cheap property.Well at least we gain some coin and food , I heard ol John is selling his property. He aint have no coin left at all! We have got lots of hay which gets a lot of coin but hay was one of the only things that was not up to standards of a good farm day. We're afraid of a drought soon to come after this spring right in platin season......

  47. ''Farm life'' Hello, My name is Timmy. I am a farmer. I'm only 12 years old. I work on a farm from sun up to sun down. I am a hard worker at most. But there is one thing about me. I am a slave. I have worked on this farm now for 8 years. I was took from my parents at the age of six years old. I was to never see them since. Any way you probably are wondering how I am writing to you right now. Well in my second year of living and working on this farm a old man known as "ray". He showed me how to write because when your a slave you don't learn this type of stuff. Any way I am working for the master on this farm. His name is unknown because we are only allowed to call him master. He is big in the tobacco industry. He is the richest man in Boston. I think. Any way I was working on the fields and then.................

    My life as a servant girl is tough,When i was just seven my parents needed money so they sent me away to work as a maid.I have been in this very house for ten years I am now seventeen.I have not seen my parents in two whole years they don't visit often and I do miss them so.My daily routine goes something like this.First i wake up and collect the eggs from the hen house then I serve breakfast for the family and wash the dishes.By this time in the day I am quite hungry and get to eat breakfast.After breakfast I sweep the floors do laundry and hang the clothes out to dry.Then I help make lunch serve it to the family and eat a small snack.Then its back to cleaning for me I get the clothes of the clothing line fold them and put them in the closet them I scrub the floors and after that its close to dinner time so I help prepare dinner and serve it.after this I have my own dinner and wash the dishes then I chop wood and start a fire.After this if there is nothing else to do I go to bed.
