knitting has happened
Are you old enough to get this?
Today I go in for my Visual Field test to see how much vision I actually have. And then it's baking frenzy as I make gingersnaps, chocolate chip cookies, and pear/ginger upside down cakes for tomorrow's tea. On Saturday morning, I will bake the ham and cheese roll-ups, so the house will smell yummy and they'll be warm when people arrive. I probably ought to walk a few miles today, too, to compensate for the tea-feasting.
I set the table using depression glass cups and saucers. I love the idea of these being given away as premiums during a time when nice things were rare. I can just see the negotiations: "Mom, can I have a nickel to go to the movies? They're giving away cups and saucers in your pattern today." "Hmm - here's a dime. Take your brother, and don't let him carry them." "Oh, mom, he won't like it. It's a musical and he always burps during the romantic parts." "He'll like the cartoon and the newsreel and it will get him out from underfoot so I can mop the kitchen floor. Here's the dime. Now scoot!"
