« A Tale of Two Quilts: Part III - NG2 (concluded) | Main | Dudette & NG1 pay us a visit »

March 18, 2011


Looks like you are making good progress.

WS does all the tree cutting around here (I do split up kindling when needed). Of course he has it easy - he uses power tools.

My Mama wears army boots AND kicks ass on whipping downed trees into shape :)

Bogie--Awww...you say the sweetest things. (You're my favorite, you know.) It is no secret that you get mucho bunches of exercise with your snow shoveling, carrying and stacking wood, gardening, canning.... (I must stop for breath, here.)

Your dad and I are awaiting the arrival of Dudette & NG2. She sent an email (early) yesterday asking if they could bring down some freshly-made muffins this morning. (Who would say no?) What Dudette & NG2 are doing making muffins at 5:30 in the morning is beyond me; but, I'm sure there is a good explanation. Dudette reminds me so much of your Grandmother S in taking such delight at having a grandkid in the kitchen with her. Beautiful! (She's my favorite, you know.)

Even in my younger days I would never have been able to saw down a tree. You are some woman !!!

Darlene--Thank you for your comment which I take as being very complimentary.

Some people are born with brains, some with brawn. I got the strong back. During my most recent visit to my 84-year-old Aunt V, she commented that she didn't understand how my mother, their other sister, and I could have been born so strong while she was born so weak. It is the luck of the draw.

Physical strength is just something that I've always taken for granted. You wouldn't believe how many times I have toted loads for younger people or how angry (shame on me) it has made me when someone my junior offers to tote something for me. Not until I realized that I have a back injury/deterioration, which became obvious about one year ago, have I "sometimes allowed" store employees to load the 40-60 pound bags of corn/sunflower seed/water softener salt or blocks of salt for the deer that I purchase - usually 2 or 3 at a time - into my car for me. This is an acknowledgement that unloading and placing the bags/blocks will probably be enough exercise for said back!
