Here's a record of a double household that worked! And furthermore, of living on an old farm which was made to pay its way, by a bit of juggling figures here and there. There were two breadwinners, who went to the city; there were three children and the author who stayed at home. And this is a record of eighteen months of ""nothing to do"" -- but to run the household, do all the cooking for six people, all the cleaning and general housework, take care of the garden, in the absence of the real gardener, attend to the needs of the children and raise puppies, (and sell them when she could bear to part with any of them). It's fun reading and delightfully written.
