I'm In Love With A Girl
Isn't she lovely? She just warms my heart!
My Mom has been "simplifying" her life, and cluttering up mine--in a wonderful way! Mom and Dad were here a couple of weeks ago for an all too brief visit (ahem--Dad, are you listening??) and Mom brought a couple of treasures. Winnie was one of them, and my favorite.
Winnie belonged to my Grandma, and always sat on her kitchen counter, right next to Auntie Mae's McCoy Bear cookie jar, which now lives at my brother's house. Grandma often had sour cream sugar cookies or, my favorite-- her really good fruit turnovers in both cookie jars. Oh, I miss my Grandma, she was the best grandma ever! But I'm taking good care of Winnie, she's not lonesome. Right now she's full of Snickerdoodles. Hmmm, I wonder what Doug has in Auntie Mae's cookie jar?
