I feel so odd around other women of and around my generation (I am 24). They (and their spouses) always seem amazed to find that I do "all those old-fashioned things" (their words, not mine). I cook "from scratch" (I screw up boxed dinners for some reason LOL); I enjoy housework and know all the little tricks and natural cleaners; I can sew by hand and with a machine; I keep flowers and herbs and know how to use them for healing purposes; I have a tool kit and know how to use it; I can build a fence as easily as I can vaccum a carpet; etc....
Are such skills really so foreign to this generation? Sometimes I actually get "playfully" picked on for what I was always taught were admirable skills!
Do you have what seems to be thought of now as "old-fashioned" homemaking skills?
