There are not enough minutes to spend with you
I’ve been missing my little grandma a lot, so I drove home to see her. She cooked all of our family favorites, fried potatoes, steamed turnip + beet greens, beans, bacon, baked pork chops + corn bread. Yah, she loves me that much.
My sister brought my nieces over to hang out and ma came over on her lunch break. It felt so nice to be home, even if I spent more time driving than hanging out.
My niece, Blair bear had the cutest pair of Toms on and I told her I wanted to wear them. She kicked them off at my feet and said go ahead. I told her I had to cut the back of them off so they would fit and she looked at me, shook her fingers and said “not uh girlfriend.”
Well okay there little miss sassy pants.
There’s no place like grandmas house.
After lunch, we walked around the backyard and toured her spring garden. She’s had a seasonal garden for as long as I can remember.
Over here, she has tomatoes + uncle Charlie planed watermelon, but hasn’t sprouted yet. Nothing beats homegrown maters.
Eggplants + peppers.
Turnip greens + beets grown from seeds she saved from last years garden. Also steamed at lunch with bacon!
Grandma was organic back when it wasn’t the cool thing to do, and she still is.
Then we went back inside, sat at the kitchen table and talked for hours. I love her simple life advise:
“When you help someone out, you will be blessed for it.“ – SCB’s grandma
She made me laugh when she said “I don’t know what no b something ee means either.” It took me a bit, but I figured out she was referring to burpees from the other days post. We had a good laugh over it.
Then she jumped up and went to her bedroom. I could hear her rummaging through something, then she came out with a box with The Virginian DVD’s. It’s her very favorite show and Mike sent a season here + there until now she has the whole collection.
She pulled them out one by one and told me all about them. I think grandma has a crush on Trampas.
I always leave grandmas with a full heart, feeling even more thankful for the simple things and a tear in my eye.
There are not enough minutes to spend with you. <3
Tell me wise words from your grandparents.
Tell me a funny story about grandparents.
