I commented on Futuro's blog yesterday and it got me thinking about how I've changed in the last 3 months. So while this is not a traditional Throwback Thursday, it's a throwback to how things were for me BEFORE the pandemic and I'm wondering if I will be able to easily return to the old Aniki...
PRE-Pandemic vs POST-Pandemic
PRE: I thought nothing of going to the grocery store every week or dropping in to grab something small: a forgotten ingredient, a craving, a treat for DH...
This has been a loooooong week. I've spent most of the day running here, there, and everywhere and am FINALLY sitting down. Unfortunately, I'm on a mucho boring conference call. HAVE to be on it, but cannot contribute to it. So.....
Throwback Thursday! Do you have any favorite Fall memories?
When I was a kid, there was one big thing we did in Fall: Fall Cleanup. That involved housecleaning AND cleaning up the yard.
Happy Thursday, STalkers! How about some memories of yesteryear and family Christmas when you were young?
Christmas tree: real or fake? Due to one sibling's allergies, we had a fake tree.
When did the tree go up/come down? Up the day after Thanksgiving. Down the day after Christmas. It looked naked without anything underneath.
Happy Thursday, STalkers! We're one day closer to the weekend. We're expecting a "snow squall" tomorrow and I am SO looking forward to it! Temps ranging from the teens to 32 means Aniki is a happy Finn!
Playing outside in the cold definitely means I'll need a hot beverage. If we're going to be out for awhile, we take a thermos. Otherwise, we tromp back into the house, strip off our wet clothes, put on something warm and fuzzy, and brew up some warmth.
Halloween (All Hallows Eve, Samhain) is 6 days away. Some folks hand out candy. Some go to parties. Some stay home, turn off the lights, and watch scary movies. When I was in my teens and early 20s, we luuuuved going to haunted houses.
What do you miss from the past?
Let's Throwback to Summer fun! DH and I went boating with friends yesterday and we were talking about childhood and Summer and favorite memories.
Here are some of mine:
It’s Throwback Thursday Threesome! Get your mind out of the gutter and think back to your preteen/teen years. Before you started going out on the town.
What were you doing on a Saturday?
Some of my coworkers and I were discussing “learning” moments from our parents during childhood. I have two that really stand out for me.
