Tidy-(adjective)- neat and orderly in appearance or habits : well ordered and cared for”
It’s the word that came to me as I peered into the bedroom of the dollhouse. The lights on the nightstand shut off automatically, so as to not waste battery.
No slippers, dirty laundry, not even a pile of books on the nightstand.
I can picture a wooden bowl of mixed nuts, all in their shells. A hinged metal nutcracker (sold as a seafood cracking tool, too) at the ready. I can hear the splitting of a walnut shell. The resistance of an almond shell. The Brazil nuts were especially hard to crack.
Seems these days the nuts are already shelled.
I’m pretty sure I still have one in a kitchen drawer. Do you use a nutcracker?
This time of year you see the wooden decorative nutcrackers on a mantle or hanging nutcracker ornaments on a Christmas tree.

A day to be appreciative of all we have in our lives. Olga, my DIL’s mother gave me a handmade linen bag with a special lining to keep bread fresh. Made in Ukraine.
After more than three weeks away, I slept in my home bed in a warm house last night. It was a long day of travel so lots of time to knit and reflect on a wonderful visit with my son and his family. I received many welcome home messages and it was lovely How good it feels to be able to travel again. To be with those you love. To meet a 2020 granddaughter.
I’m grateful for my family and friends and all of you who stop by here.
I found an article about Giving Thanks from Harvard Health Publishing and how it can make one happier. I believe it!
