Out and about at yet more yard sales this AM - I spotted this...
I hurried past thinking I'll get some of that 25 cents-an-ear
corn on my way back... just enough for lunch.
Upon stopping I noticed the sign said 25 cents a dozen! What?
A quick chat with the owner & I soon learned there was nothing amiss.
She was simply well supplied and wanted someone else to benefit
from her 'leftovers'. Oh my! Now anyone else who has no corn in
their freezer would have surely taken most all that was there at this price.
But you see - at 53 years old - I have never 'done up' corn by myself.
My story in brief...
I have a rare neuro arm disease that started when I was 16.
There have been many things over the years that I haven't and
couldn't do. Definitely not corn. We have simply done without
except what people have given us at times. But my arms have improved
in the last while and today I found myself wondering if I might now
be well enough to give corn a whirl. My Love assured he'd help if needed.
So I got a few dozen and we husked, cooked, cooled...
and the hard part for me... cut corn. About 3 1/2 dozen.
Let's just say I cried some happy tears today. I did corn!
And I did it all myself - except for help with husking.
Granted - I didn't do a lot... but enough that now if I want to make
baked corn - I'll actually have something to make it with.
Cause we all know - baked corn with store bought corn just isn't the same.
I'm just a little giddy and think I smiled through the whole process.
I've been offering prayers of thanksgiving for sure.
Thanks for rejoicing with me! ~Joyce
