A Baker’s Life by Owl Girl

 

Have you ever met a baker? Well that’s me.  My name is Theodosia Morris.  I am a baker in New Jersey at the Middle Colonies.  My parents are still alive and help me when I need them.  I was married when I was 20 years old and had two kids with Abel Livingstone, the farmer.  One is called Eleanor and the other is called Fanny.  I am worried that I don’t get as much money as I would like to have.  Some of the animals that we have are sheep’s, pigs and chickens.  I and my family are self-sufficient.  My jobs and tasks that I still do today is being a baker.  My schedule and my responsibilities are first, to wake up early at 5:00 a.m. and wash my family’s clothes, feed the animals in the farm, then go to the bakery and bake bread and cookies and sell them.  Finally, I go back home at 5 or 6:00 p.m. and rest in my bed.  One is called Eleanor and the other is called Fanny.  I am worried that I don’t get as much money as I would like to have.  Some of the animals that we have are sheep’s, pigs and chickens.  I and my family are self-sufficient.  My jobs and tasks that I still do today is being a baker.  My schedule and my responsibilities are first, to wake up early at 5:00 a.m. and wash my family’s clothes, feed the animals in the farm, then go to the bakery and bake bread and cookies and sell them.  Finally, I go back home at 6:00 p.m. and rest on my bed.

I really hate when I have to go buy the flour, and asking me immediately to bake cookies.  I am really happy in the Middle Colonies because it is very warm. What annoys me is that I have to wake up at 5:00 a.m. and feed the animals in the farm.  A life problem that I have is that I need more money.

I would rather be a printer but I am a baker.  My dreams and wishes are to have a lot more money.  I could change my life by helping my husband at the farm in the afternoon.  My hopes and wishes for the future are to spend more time having fun with my kids so they could be happy.

What make me really happy are my kids and my husband.  I enjoy baking cookies to my kids.  My favorite activities are to bake cookies to my kids and farm with my family, feed the animals in the farm.  A great and favorite time that I remember really well, was when I was 21 that I gave birth to Eleanor and after two years to Fanny.  I was really happy!
