A Season of Memories

Ruth Anderson, my beloved grandmother left this world for her heavenly home when I was still a young one (just eight years old). My brief time with my grandma was filled with experiences that left lasting impressions on my life. During the fall/winter months, grandma would love to take her beloved grandchildren along for one of her favorite past-times: picking pecans.

In Augusta, Georgia as the leaves found their way off the trees, the grounds would become littered with the dusty brown colored shells with black lines holding the treasured nuts known as pecans. I can still hear the rusting sound as the marriage of the leaves, pecan shells, and shoes all coming together as we walked through the orchards that seemed larger than life. Armed with our brown bags, neatly folder under our arms, we opened the bag and watched grandma for instructions on how which pecans were ready to be picked. 

My grandma was expert in finding pecans at their prime and she would feel her brown bag quickly. The pecans we picked would soon turn into the main ingredients in Pecan pies or toasted and rolled with sugar and spice for a wonderful holiday treat. 

Do you have any childhood memories of this season? Please feel free to share. It makes my heart smile to think of days and times gone by, how about you?

A period tells you that is that. With a semicolon you get a pleasant little feeling of expectancy ; there is more to come; read on; it will get clearer.
