There are a few controlling people who hate the fact that I have a blog (dare I mention inlaws?).
You know, the type of people who think that if they're scared to death to do something, everybody should be scared. One of them recently had a conversation with Cliff about my "problem". (Chuckle)
I'm sorry, I won't live my life letting fear keep me from doing what I love. You go shopping, if that's what you want to do. I will blog.
Do you realize how much I would miss out on, if it weren't for my blog? I don't meet a lot of new people in person. I don't drive, and Cliff and I don't travel much. But I have "met" so many wonderful people through blogs!
In fact, the Internet in general has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. For one thing, it got me back in touch with one of my favorite former coworkers, Jessica. The one born in Arkansas to hippie parents.
Last Saturday the local grandchildren, plus a couple of other people, came here for noodles (a family tradition in this house). The only other food I fixed was mashed potatoes, because most of us like to put our noodles on mashed potatoes. No green vegetable. No dessert. Just noodles and mashed potatoes, because that's really all my grandchildren cared about. As I was making the noodles, I posted this picture on Facebook:
I mentioned that when you make noodles this way, you really need a child unrolling them. I remember unrolling my grandma's noodles for her.
Yesterday Jessica tried my noodle recipe for the first time, and posted a picture of her daughter unrolling the noodles.
Here's a picture of my real-life sister making noodles with her great-granddaughter at Christmas:
Don't you just love family traditions? And don't you love the Internet, where those of you who aren't scared of your own shadow can keep in touch?
Speaking of family traditions, I think Noodle Day may become a monthly event.
