Hi there, everyone! Welcome to Part Three of the Summer Memories series. If you’d like to learn a bit more on what this series is all about, click here!
I will be sharing each story in the order that they were sent to me – just to make that clear!
For today’s post, we have a heartwarming collection of T.R. Noble’s (from Inside Cup) childhood summer memories that she spent with her grandmother. Enjoy!
My summers from my childhood dealt with lingering sunsets, cut grass, swimming in the pool, and dreading seeing school supplies appearing in stories when it was July. But what summer also represented, especially when I was younger, were the countless visits to my grandma’s house. Grandma grew vegetables in her garden, had for years, even when my mom, aunt, and uncles were kids.
In the summers, I enjoyed her homemade spaghetti sauce from the vegetables. Even now, every time I smell peppers and onions together, it reminds me of her sauce.
And late in the summer, I would help her snap green beans. It wasn’t a tradition till I was about 13 when I started helping her. Under the shade, we would snap green beans together, just talking about random stuff. She used everything she created in her garden, canned a lot of it.
Grandma always taught me about endurance, and keeping your hands busy. We would sip tea, chat, and snap.
It doesn’t get much simpler than that.
Wasn’t that great? I loved getting to read about the fun summer memories you had with your grandmother, T.R. Noble 🙂 They’re so sweet and reminiscent!
Thanks for reading, everyone! How about you?
