Quarantined? Survival techique.
So we are confined to our homes. We get hungry because we have time to think of food. My mind started thinking of old-fashioned chocolate fudge.....home made, of course. That made me think that my mother's old cookbook might have a recipe for it.
Here you see my mother's old cook book. There, written in the back, was a recipe! It was noted that it came from Ethelle Hardy, a friend who lived next door. As a child, I loved that lady! The old book was a 1948 edition and had been published since 1908 and as you can see, it was worn out, held together by an elastic band of some kind! OMG! That was probably an elastic garter! Now who can remember garters?? I think they were used to hold up your stockings before panty hose came along. Panty hose? Out of style with young ladies now saying, "No matter how ugly your legs are, go bare-legged."
So there you go.....memories of the past flood your mind. Other things in the book were written reminders, obituaries of relatives.....all kinds of things helping me forget my lack of freedom.....and making me remember.....
