My grandma always had a “round tuit” on her fridge. I remember looking at the little round wooden circle with the word “tuit” on it and thinking it was the silliest magnet there ever was. What in the world was a tuit???
Finally one day I asked Grandma what a tuit was. She chuckled at me and asked me what shape the magnet was. Um…a circle. Circle Tuit? That doesn’t make any sense. Silly little magnet.
Then Grandma said that yes it’s a circle and if circles are round…what does that make the magnet?
Hmm…a round tuit. OH!!! A round tuit!!! I got it!!! AROUND TO IT!! Suddenly that little magnet went from being ridiculous to the funniest thing my grandma owned. I can still hear Grandma chuckle at me when my “light bulb” went on.
I always wondered what happened to Grandma’s tuit after she died. Of all things to wonder about. Apparently I had told my friend Anne about Grandma’s round tuit. Sometime last year, Anne found a wooden round tuit and gave it to me so that I could have one like my grandma had. Truly it was one of the best gifts I’ve ever been given.
But here is my question: Why…now that I have a round tuit can I still not ever get around to it?
I have so many things to do and posts to post…but I seem to never get around to it. I have an email inbox full of questions you’d like me to answer on my blog. Plus all kinds of recipes and links and fun ideas I want to share with you.
If only I could get around to it.
Here are some of the most popular questions I’ve received from you that I’m going to write about just as soon as I get around to it:
- Soaps and sundries…what kind of detergents, soaps, cleaners do I use?
- Homeschool schedule…how do I structure our day, teach all the boys and keep the little one occupied during it all?
- Grain Mills…which one do I have…which one do I recommend?
- Grinding Flour…does it save money to grind your own? What kind of grain do I like?
- Making bread…for those who are new at making bread…would I please share a tutorial on the whole process, especially how to knead the bread?
- Giving little boys hair cuts
There are others waiting in my inbox…but I think I can safely say that those are the most frequently asked questions.
I’m going to make a big effort to answer these questions within the next few weeks.
What I need to know is: WHICH of these questions are you interested in me answering first? Which one is more important for you to know about? I’ll be answering all of them as I get a round tuit…but help me out by sharing what you want me to work on first?!
