Hullo there folks!
I hope everyone is faring okay during the onslaught of the winter holidays…
…Christmas & Kwanzaa & Hanukkah & Solstice & ALL THE OTHERS.
Like your most favorite weekly holiday–TINY TUESDAY! :O
Here is a TINY QUOTE to start us off:
I guess that is actually more of a TINY FUN FACT but I haven’t fact checked it, so we will call it a TINY QUOTE. I love strawberries. I miss summer already.
I often send myself direct messages on instagram of recipes and crafty stuff. Also TINY stuff, of course. I let them build up a bit and here is what I have to show for it: slightly awkward screenshots. I decided not to crop them so you can get some of the tags. Obviously these pictures are not mine–most are watermarked by their owner. Go checkout the various accounts for more fun TINY!
FIFTHS of BOOZE!
Here also is some TINY candy. I spotted these on a recent trip to Hopey & Co. in Swannanoa. Nothing like silly fruity candy to make ya feel like a kid again. Just look at the TINY BONZ! I totally want to shellac them and put them on jewelry!
Okay, so I got caught in an awful traffic jam coming home from work today. It turns out, it was an accident with a fatality, so please send out some prayers and good vibes to the folks who lost a loved one today. I had no idea what was up ahead (I found out after I got home) but things were slow moving. I did what I always do in such situations: I put it in park and got out my knitting! After sitting for a few minutes I noticed the lady in the car next to me (a PT Cruiser, no less) giving me the international “roll down your window” handmotion. I have an ACTUAL manual window so this took some doing from across the truck. After I got the window down a bit she hollers to me, “I’VE BEEN PRAYING, WONDERING WHAT WAS GOING ON AND THEN ON THE RADIO–I’M LISTENING TO THE CHRISTIAN STATION–THEY SAID IT WAS A REAL BAD WRECK.” And I’m like, “Yeah that’s what it looks like–we might be here a while, thank goodness I have my knitting.” (I chuckle and hold up my knitting) Then the lady hollers back to me, “I HAVE SOME FRESH BANANAS IN THE BACK, DO YOU WANT ONE? I’LL HAVE MY SON BRING IT OVER TO YOU” I tell her no but thank you I have been eating peppermints and would she like some. She says, “HAHA, NO THANK YOU, BUT GOD BLESS YOU.” And I say , “You, too.” And then the traffic starts to move again and we wave goodbye.
The world is a pretty crazy place right now, but there are TINY bits of magic everywhere. You just have to be ready for them. Look out for them and you just might get a banana and a prayer in the middle of Hwy 321.
Big love to all of y’all.
See you back here soon.
