Memory Lane is where it's at

I saw this on my sister's blog and thought I would play along. I'd like to add another condition though, can we keep it nice please? No need for older sister bashing - I know I've done a lot of dumb stuff in my life, but can you remember any good, funny or nice stuff?

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot. Anything you remember!


2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty fun to see the responses. If you leave me a memory about me, I'll assume you are playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one for you.

Only one memory? Okay...
I remember you directing me to the easiest recipe for wheat bread that I have ever made, and it is the best tasting one I have ever made as well!

Does this silence mean my bro and sis have no imagination?

Stacy said...

I remember in high school that you would let me hang out with you and all of your friends. We even went to a Sadie Hawkins? dance together. TPapered exboyfriends houses etc.You were sooo cool, yet so nice to me (the tag a long sister.) Thanks sis!

Mrs. Organic said...

Do you remember when we spent all night raking the shredded paper off the barely-laid sod (before mom & dad got back) and then depositing it back on Steve's yard? 3 trash bag fulls of the stuff! And thank you for remembering something nice :)

My favorite memory is when I slept over and went to Jr. High with you for the day. I must have been 7th and you must have been 9th. I felt so cool pretending to be a 9th grader all day.

Mrs. Organic said...

family g - thanks for the memory, those were some fun years. I wish I would have kept the letters, it's fun to roll your eyes at them and realize just how much you (I) have grown up.

I remeber you and me made the coolest fort in the basement of the spider house. We had sheets hanging from the ceiling all around the bed and one down the middle do we each had our own room. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Syd and Stacy made the underground fort wich was pretty cool but not as good as ours. Good job on your fort making skills.

I remember when you turned on your webcam and introduced me to baby ellie....(she's so cute!) and I remember thinking about you..."SHE IS NOT FAT!!!" So, I don't care what you say...you're HOT and I know it!

I remember meeting you for the first time IRL (OK, and only so far). You are lovely and kind and generous (thanks again for the apricots) and you make the most beautiful quilts!

It might be awhile before I post--I'm still playing catch-up. But I like this meme.

Mrs. Organic said...

bubbles - duct tape, sheets, and a bed the only things you need for an awesome fort!

b - that was so nice of you to think that. You know, they say the camera adds 5-10 lbs so imagine how much better I must look IRL - really!

compulsive - thank you, this is a fun one - I don't remember half the stuff people remember about me.

I remember laughter at quilt retreats. I remember fun and games at swim parties with my grandkids. I remember the calm and wise spirit of a friend I love and miss.

JENNIFRO said...

Well...I have a very distant memory of you delivering a handmade, breathtaking pink and green quilt to me. That's a memory that will stay with me. THANK YOU.

Kenna said...

I have many but two stand out. I remember when you were in your first house and you and Mr. O would come pick me up and let me stay over in the guest room. It was so much fun.

I also remember in 8th grade you home taught me half the day. It was way more fun than regular school, I loved all the cool field trips we got to take. Thanks.

Mrs. Organic said...

sue - we had some good times here, didn't we. I miss you at quilt retreats. In fact, I miss quilt retreats, period.

jen - I'm so glad you love it, it was a fun one to make. I probably ought to start up one for Kell's baby.

kenna - You're going to have to remind me of those field trips - I just remember the reading, writing, and arithmetic ;)

I have lots of memories of you and your fam. Most of my early memories are one's of fearing for my life but i wont share any of those.
I remember working for you and Mr.O sanding "ham plaques" which im sure is to blame for my tendonitis in my elbows. Those were the days were all of my paycheck went to things i wanted (minus 10% of course).
I also remember spending hrs in your pool playing with the fam. We love having you guys close by.
Little Bro,

Ok---A good memory! Long ago in a land far distant it was Mother's day and the Primary was putting a special program in Sacrament meeting. I wanted to be there but sisters 3 and 4 were being difficult so I had to take them home. I felt bad that I was going to miss it. I hurried home and the two girls went to sleep quickly so I decided I could safely leave them alone for a minute---(we lived so close and they were so tired I thought I dared)---anyway I slipped back into the meeting to listen to you and Stacy sing. All the children were singing and had during an earlier song taken a flower to their mother. I was sad that I had missed that part but then you saw me and you walked so reverently down the isle and handed me the rose. You gave me a big hug and walked back up to the stand all the while singing. That was probably the best Mother's Day gift ever. Ok, a close second was when you came into my room on a Mother's Day morning when you were in Jr. Hi. and said, "Mom here is your present--,you can choose between these two candy bars, which one do you want?" I always felt pretty bad that I wasn't at least a two candy bar mom!! Love you Mom
