My grandmother is highly organized. She has her craft closet completely organized and labeled. She has a container for everything and she generally knows what's going on with everything. I learned that when she finishes a book she always underlines page 13 in the book. That way if she picks up a book, she'll know if she's read it or not. What a great idea! I might have to start doing that too...except I'll probably pick page 8. :) She was the one that taught me to read, to crochet, and to needlepoint. And I still have some of the original crochet hooks she gave me when I was 12.
My grandpa is probably the funniest man I know. Even though he doesn't talk all that much anymore, but when he says something, it's something worth hearing and it's usually something funny. A few weeks ago I was sitting down at a meeting or something I was twiddling my thumbs (unbeknownst to me) and someone pointed it out to me. I realized that it's something that my grandfather does all the time too. I'm not sure why that's significant but I don't know many people that actually twiddle their thumbs so I was struck by this. I know this is kind of random but I love that we both do that.
Even if I don't see them as often as I'd like, I'm really glad to see a little of them in me.
Oh and I have to share this cute picture of their dog Maggie. Isn't she cute?Grandparents really are grand aren't they?
