Living an Attitude of Gratitude

Day 993

Today I am thankful:

Because I haven’t forgotten how to crochet – it all came back without my having to struggle to remember.

For bathtubs; a hot bubbly bath is good for what ails you.

For popcorn. I wonder who discovered it and how?

  1. You know, I have my mother’s crocheted Baptismal gown. It was done by my great-grandmother. I ought to pull that out and have it framed, or something. I hate that there’s no one to pass it on to.

    As for popcorn — that reminds me of popcorn balls, our favorite Halloween treat. They always were wrapped in cellophane – not Saran Wrap!

    • That is a family heirloom! We had a christening gown that my grandmother made – hand sewn – my Dad, me, my brother, and both my sons were baptised in it. My mom donated it to a doll museum in New Orleans, or so she said. I have no clue where it is.

  2. Yes. I bet I co knit again, it is in the blood .. And nerve endings .

    I enjoyed a hot bubbly bath this evening, too. Aren’t they wonderfully relaxing? Cleaning? All the “shit” of the day disappears down the drain. And we won’t go there .. where it disappears to. 😃

    I think that I knew who have us popcorn and how they did it. But I do ‘t remember now. It is quite a healthy vegetable. They say. 👏

    I hope you rest cozily and calmly

  3. I would love to learn how to knit, crochet and embroider…actually, I would love to learn how to tat lace. I should try. All of my ancestors knew how to do it all, it must be in my blood.

    • There are all sorts of ‘how-to’ videos and instructions on the internet. Probably even for tatting, too. 😀

    • Yes Sharon! Do it! It will relax you and calm you down .. make you happy. I knitted on a blanket every time I was pregnant. Then I put it away until the next time. It helped me get through my itchy nights. I got an itchiness that you can have when you are pregnant. It stopped after the baby was born. It was awful. My knitting kept my hands busy so that I didn’t scratch myself to death.

    I am so glad it is coming back to you, Ruth! ❤️
