I liked this prompt! The place where I live sometimes seems stuck in time. A time of years past, where people ‘do’ for themselves and rely on each other, small communities that are tied to one another by commonality, relationships and distance from technology.

I picked this photo, because of my personal interest in ‘fiber arts’ from crocheting to quilting. Again it is from Ozark Heritage Day.

The wool being spun into yarn was from their own sheep and as you passed around the rest of this demonstration, weaving and knitting were also displayed. Signs of time gone by and arts still to be revered and remembered. It is where we Ozarkers came from and precious treasures remain in the ‘knowing’ and doing.  

Strong people, resiliant people. I am blessed to know them, to learn from them… proof positive that we are not ‘lazy rednecks’ but intelligent and independent.

Truly, I love this space, but seldom spend a lot of time here. I generally have  ‘places to be and things to do’ as my father would say. This is kind of my half hour haven in the house.

I feel fortunate to take some time to stretch out, sew, knit, read or do a crossword puzzle, in this quiet spot.

The past two days have been the exception, some sort of illness attacked and since yesterday, racked with lots of aches and fever,  I have spent most of my time cuddled down, with a favorite quilt, surrounded by things that bring me comfort. Some tasty green tea, in large doses has been appreciated as well.

Perhaps tomorrow, I will feel more ‘like myself’ (not sure who I have been for two days) ajd return to the other corner I inhabit – the one in my kitchen.
