I’ve been kind of following (in the loosest sort of use of that word) the WordPress Daily Prompts. This one is about just sitting down and writing for 10 minutes non-stop. Well, I think I can do that, but it all comes out in a gobbledygook sort of mess and lands at my fingertips, ready for cleaning up and redressing. Or is that re-dressing? Sometimes the English language gets in the way of what I want to say.
So here I sit, thinking about what I want to write. Not many thoughts worth hanging onto long enough to write down. I had one thought that just came in and spooked all the others away and took over my mind. I was SO HAPPY to receive a package in the mail this week, from a gal whose blog I follow, called CurlsnSkirls. She shared some patterns with me. I have GOT to try one of those jackets! She also sent me a lovely crocheted heart. I put the heart with the pincushion (it’s actually a Christmas tree ornament) she’d sent me before. I use that little boot ornament to hold my hand-sewing needles, and now it has a heart! Thank you so much, del, for thinking of me!!
Guess what else I was thinking? I’ll tell you anyway. I was thinking about the other day when talking to a friend. She was relating a story about her grandkids. One of the littles, age 4, asked her mom why Grandma always called her pants ‘britches.’ Mom explained that it was a generation gap. Oldest son, age 7, piped up, “What’s a generation app? Should we download it?”
Well, time’s up. It’s been 10 minutes and I guess I don’t have fast thoughts. Only two had time to develop in my mind and I’m OK with that. It gives me time to get photos to go along with the thoughts (well, at least the one I have photos to accompany!), and time to fix all my typos that I really don’t want to show you. What I DO want to show you are these great patterns and the heart. I just love this blogging community!!!!
