Snow Outside - Daffodils Inside
The spring time Daffodils I purchased ( yes - purchased -- they would not be blooming here in the snow weather yet) must have gotten to me yesterday. I started doing spring cleaning chores. When I was cleaning out shelves in the laundry area, I found my grandmother's silver. Luckily, it was not sold by Amber, somehow. I found it, in her garage, thrown in a metal container , which held Wright's Silver Polish. I wanted to take a picture of it before I polished it yesterday, but I had camera operating problems. What you see above are the AFTER results. I have decided it will be used as my every day silverware, starting tomorrow, with Easter dinner. I have heard that silver will not tarnish as badly if it is used everyday. We will see--
The beginning of my place setting
As you can see, our eggs are not yet colored.
Chandler had a friend over yesterday after school.
He did not want his friend to know that he wanted to color eggs. He told me kids his age did not color eggs-
I chided him a little about it-
told him I bet his friend would love coloring eggs with us -- but, like a good grandmother should, I let it go. I told him I might go on and color mine but he asked me to wait so we could do it together --
What's a grandmother to do?
I will wait till tomorrow.
I think it will be the first time ever that my eggs have not been colored before Easter day.
Yes, and sometimes NeW adds CoLoR to life!
So, the eggs I played with last night were plastic. I filled them with dollar bills and hid them around the house for Chandler's egg hunt tomorrow. I think he will like the color of these eggs!
I am now reading the book, The Postmistress. Last night, as I read, I came across the saying I recently added to the side of my blog- Stay Calm and Carry On-
I had not a clue this was a common saying during the World Wars.
I have discovered my reading time, at night, sitting in my bed, is probably my favorite time of the day. I read a little --- AND
I reflect, as I look at the view from my bed. Peaceful-
I reflect about my life, along with the life of others. Often the book I am reading jars a reason for reflecting.
I also found myself reflecting as I polished my grandmother's silver yesterday.
My grandmother did not have a dining room. Her table was in her quite large kitchen --which looking back -- would have greatly been enhanced with an island! No such thing was going on in anyone's kitchen back in those days. But, dining room, or not, I never remember her using the silver. I found myself wondering if she did ever use it. That is when I decided to make it my every day silver ware. It deserves to be seen!
As does Springtime -
wheather at your house it is outdoors or
like at my house indoors --
Happy Easter to each and every one!
