My dough bowl is very plain for this month but I like it. The contrast of the wood, stitching and moss rocks are very soothing. The little flag is from Knee High by the Fourth of July( Hands on Designs). I think it is a good reminder that we are all in this together.
Marvin and I were watching a rerun of Lawrence Welk on PBS on Saturday evening. We both agreed it was a combination of Hokey and Comforting.:) Oh the clothes of the 70s....it takes me back. Mr Welk did a great job of making sure the program was styled perfectly. I really like the old Welk shows where the audience would come up and dance at the end of the program. We did not dance in my family so I thought it was pretty classy. We were good Baptists and truly believed a dancing foot and a praying knee did not grow on the same leg.:) Now that I feel free to dance if I want to, I feel very self conscious. Also I am married to a German...they do not want you in their space at any time. Marvin and I do shuffle around the floor when we go to wedding receptions and they make all the married couples come up and dance. The emcee calls out 10 years, those married ten years or less sit down. You get the idea. We have been married 43 years but at our church there is a lovely couple who has been married 60 plus years. They are always the last on the floor and we all clap very enthusiastically for them.
One way Marvin and I have been coping with the quarantine is taking a ride in the car in the afternoon. We drive down the country roads and just enjoy seeing the scenery. Amelia and Todd took their four to Guntersville State Park to get some exercise. Amelia reported that Kendall was not happy about it at all. After all she is indoorsy like Nana.:) I have to smile to myself remembering some outings we took where Amelia acted much the same way. What goes around comes around. Here are a few photos from beautiful Sweet Home Alabama.
I hope everyone is keeping safe and encouraged. Keep those chins up! and we are going to have them from all the snacking.
