The prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “so/sow/sew.” Use one, use ’em all, use ’em any way you’d like. Bonus points if you start and end with any of them.

When I read the word "sow" I immediately had to think about my holidays with my grandparents when I was a child. They lived on the countryside in a little town, or big village and of course there were many farmers at that time. One of them once showed me a big sow, I had never seen before one that fat. He explained that the sow was expecting babies !! I was all excited and asked when that would happen, and so he promised me to tell my grandma when the piglets were born.

A few days later I was called and could admire a happy not so big anymore sow laying on one side with 10 or 12 little piglets stuck on her belly ! Were they cute with their little curly tails, I couldn't get enough of watching them. of course I was not allowed to take one out, because the sow could get very angry !

I have always loved pigs and I guess they loved me too. This one was very friendly, it was a little black sow which loved my shoes and followed me all around the place.

Sewing is another story, I once learned to sew in school, but once out of school I have never sewed again. It just wasn't for me.

  1. Lovely that you have some wonderful memories of your childhood and Grandparents.

  2. How fun you got to see the newborn piglets! Piggies sure are very cute. I adore their curly tails :-)
    I do some sewing when necessary, but I'm not very good at it!

  3. Going to the farm must have been quite a learning experience for you. Bill raised pigs when he was a kid and he still loves them -- we always check them out when we go to Fairs.
