Lessons to be learned...
Ahhh, as the days went by there was a lot to be learned. While she had put me to work in the yard earlier, I later asked for her knowledge in exchange. Years ago I had taught myself how to knit (basic level). Then last year I got a refresher from a lady on one of my mail routes. Now I had Granno all to myself and a wealth of knitting and crocheting skills just waiting to be pasted on to the next generation.
Sitting on the deck with wine and yarn.
A hat that I had started for Jim but didn't know how to finish.
Really - 4 needles?!
Thanks to Granno and some wine the hat was completed!
I spent a day teaching my Uncle John how to make sourdough English muffins and two kinds bread.
His first loaf!
See what I mean about good food, wine and sitting around? No wonder my shorts were a bit tighter when I got home, but it was all worth it.
still more to come...
