My Dear Granny


My dear granny passed away on August 11, 2009. She was such a fabulous granny, a grandchild couldn't ask for a better one. I was lucky because for the first 10 years of my life, I lived next door to her. I would visit her everyday and she always had time for a story, snack or to take us fishing!!! She would make my sister and I matching Christmas and Easter dress every year! After my parents divorce, we spent every Friday night at my grandparents house. My grandma would always have: Brownies made for my sister, Green Olives for my brother, and rice krispie treats for me!! On Saturday mornings, she would make us peanut butter and syrup. In case you are wondering, that is just a Giant spoonful of peanut butter and lots of syrup on a plate...mix well until really creamy..eat with bread. YUM!!!

She loved the holidays and always had to be the hostess. She was a QUEEN in the kitchen. My granny could cook....my favorite dish she made was Chicken and Dumplings!!! She had a HUGE Sunday dinner each week. Unless we were out of town, we were expected at lunch on Sundays.

She was an excellent seamstress like I said...but she also quilted and crocheted. I have a beautiful tablecloth she has crochet for me. I also have several quilts she has made. I guess this is where I get my love of needlework.


I just wanted to share a little about a fabulous lady that I am going to miss dearly.
