Yea, more snow this morning. I can hear the snow plow going by as I write this post.
Grandma Jeanne babysat with Josh and Gabby over the weekend as the kids were on vacation. I went over Sunday for lunch and to play with the Grand kids. Poor Gabby has such a bad cold. This image doesn’t really tell the true story. I spent a lot of time taking away most of the signs of her cold. I’m sure she felt miserable but she had a great attitude the entire time I was there and we played a lot until it was her nap time.
Master chef Joshua is at the age where he insists that he “do it all by himself.” So Grandma put the mayonnaise on the bread for him but then gave him the knife. 95% of the mayonnaise went into his mouth, around his mouth and on his shirt. 🙂
Then he arranged the turkey and cheese on the bread and never touched it the rest of the meal.
It reminded me of a lesson my Grandpa Linch taught me at a very early age. I have no idea how old I was (couldn’t have been too old because he passed before I started school.) We were staying at their house (on the farm) over night and Grandpa loved to have bread (in little pieces) covered with molasses. He made it look so good I asked if I could have some. I took a whole piece of bread and broke it up on my plate and then he said, “Take a little to see if you like it.” Well of course I smothered the bread with the molasses and took my first big bite. Yuck!!!! I don’t like this.
Grandpa was a man of few words. His few words were, “You took it all, you will eat it all.” I had it again for supper, breakfast, and lunch the next day. By that time I was so hungry I finally ate it all. Lesson learned. 🙂
That’s it for today. Enjoy your snowy hump day. Thanks for stopping by and be careful.
