I am overjoyed with this encouraging community of writers. During my writing breaks, you might find me down a rabbit hole searching family history or above ground hanging out with live family members.

Chapter 11 of the book Highlights of Home
NaPoWriMo 11 - Chime Operandi
"J is for Jars" by Mama Baer

n atmosphere of peace it bears;
no cares found in this room.
We will consume juice, salsa, pears;
we won't face any doom.
Mom's always been our "faithful ant."
Aesop's fable,
lids are labeled,
food for table,
we'll be stable.
Able to eat, we're jubilant!



The book continues with K is for Kitchen. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
One of my favorite spots was our food storage room in the basement. My parents made sure we knew the story of The Grasshopper and The Ant (Aesop's Fables) and modeled, as it were, ant living. Every fall, at harvest, we helped fill dozens of jars with fruit, veggies, and juices. The room was cool, clean, orderly, and full of security . . . all bottled up!

Shout out to Helen for sharing Dolly's Chime Operandi format! What fun to practice.
