Hello, landmines. [Thursday, Feb. 19th, 2009|02:45 am]
The richest girl in town.
Nana's cameo and a miniature pair of scissors I played with as a child, a woodcut of Jesus I brought back from England for her in 2005, her old bible with recipes tucked into the back....

I've got "These Foolish Things" running through my head now.

I still have a sealed plastic bag with some of my father's shirts and sweaters. I open it now and then, it still smells like him.

I envy you your recipes. Someday you'll be able to take one out and make something your grandmother felt was good enough to keep, and it'll resonate with all your senses.

I was just staring at some pottery that my Grammy made this morning. I miss her. I'm glad I have them out on display, but sometimes they just hit me. So much sympathy over here.

You played with scissors as a child? Why am I not surprised?

Sounds like a treasure trove, guard them and enjoy them. Now you have a really good reason to cook more.
