Wow. Time has pretty much flown over in my neck of the woods. Didn’t realize that I haven’t written anything since October… It’s been CRAZY over this way. To start, just a little while after I posted last, my grandmother started her slow descent in health. She passed away on the 26th of October. Before that, I was busy making a hat for her so she wouldn’t be cold. When I gave it to her, I told her that I would be donating as many hats as I possibly could over the next several months to a local Oncology wing in her name. She smiled at me when I said that, so I took that as a go-ahead for my project. Since that’s not the only project that I’ve been working on, I’ll get to it after I finish up those projects that I have going before Yule first. But yeah. I discovered this year, that I LOVE making hats! 🙂
You know, I DO miss her. Not that I didn’t get to say what I wanted to say, but I miss the woman she was. We may not have seen eye to eye on things, but she was my grandmother. I ran to her with anything I was having trouble with. When Empty got sick, I saw her QUITE a bit. I’ll never forget that she was the bigger woman that day and came to see Empty in the hospital. We had been fighting, per the usual, but she still came in. I’ll never forget that, no matter HOW much we fought since. I mean, with two VERY opinionated and stubborn women, could you blame us?
Aside from our fights, my grandmother and I just seemed to GET each other. When it mattered most, we were able to put aside our differences and jsut be there. That’s why I’m currently working on putting together a scrapbook about her life with pictures. The only thing is, is that I dont’ ahve any of the pictures with her siblings. Plenty with all of her grandkids around, but not much of them all. If you know anybody with any pictures, please send them my way before the 9th, so I can put this book together and give them to my grandfather as a Christmas present.
Thanks. ❤ Silver
