[Lauren’s] choice this week for the topic on [her] Throwback Thursday Memory Blog Hop is memories as a kid when you did something naughty and something nice.
I am running a little bit late on this post because I went on a baking and cooking extravaganza yesterday, in which I made my very first cheesecake and homemade marshmallow fluff chocolate fudge. The cheesecake is a chocolate cheesecake. Both turned out wonderful, and I will have to post some pictures. I still have to decorate the top of the cheesecake, and then I will be making my homemade chicken and noodles today as well.
Now that I have rambled on, let’s get back to naughty and nice. As a kid I was pretty good, but the funniest thing that comes to mind for me on the naughty side is my snooping. I would get into everyone’s stuff because I was nosy and was casing the items to see what I wanted to steal when my victims (sisters and my mother mostly) were not paying attention. I would take small things like pictures and trinkets from my sisters, but as I got older, I found more interest in my mother’s file cabinet where she hid her cigarettes. I started smoking when I was 11 years old. So that is probably my most naughty thing that I did.
My memory serves me well on something I did that was nice also. I was a caring child, very emotional like I am now. For birthdays and Christmas, I would always make handwritten or handmade presents for everyone. My dad actually kept most of these handmade items. When he died, I was able to see that he kept them all when I got some of his items. A few of them had little notes to remind him when he got the things I made him in his handwriting. It felt good to know that my little gifts meant a lot to him. We were not always close.
I hope you enjoyed my rambles! Merry Christmas everyone!
