Monday WRites 167

[drinking glasses in today's mosaic from the internet, fair use]

QUENCHED
remember those days... when water came from our kitchen taps...and we poured it into pretty glasses... the clear glasses we used for our water... the fancy patterned ones for juices...and always... there were the glasses we could drink from everyday...and there was the stash... in the cabinets.... we dared not touch...those were for special occasions... and if you visited someone's home you sat in the drawing room and you admired all the pretty wares...glasses included... in the cabinet... today... we put the plastic bottles to our mouths and we drink...our thoughts quenched...that...yes water comes from plastic bottles...

  1. Happy Monday and Happy Anniversary memory, Gillena. You are so right about how we drink water these days--mostly out of bottles. The young ones don't collect crystal glasses any longer.

  2. Happy Anniversary memory, Gillena, it's good to have fond memories of the special days in our lives. Hopefully soon we'll stop drinking water out of plastic bottles and find a better alternative for the planet.

  3. Over the years I've found a few of those pretty glasses at the thrift store and that's what I drink water from during the day. Sure makes me happy...just like the memories you've shared! Hugs!

  9. Happy Anniversary, Gillena. I love drinking water out of glasses and we always drink tap water here. I've been working on minimizing plastic in our home and we never purchase bottled water. We have metal canteens that we carry with us on hikes or in the car. Your post is a good reminder.
