Question of the day.

Hi guys. 🙂

Here’s my another family related question for you. 🙂

Do you have any heirlooms?

My answer:

We have a few old books, mostly religious, like prayer books or such, that once belonged to some of our relatives, as well as a cook book of my great grandma which is written in a deliciously archaic language and has not only recipes but also some interesting bits of knowledge, like how certain ingredients were used in the past or traditions related to particular dishes, a lot of kind of folklore info so definitely my thing. But other than that, we don’t really have very old heirlooms after people who are dead. We have a wooden closet made by my grandad, which my Mum wanted as a souvenir, because it’s our first house where we live away from her parents, and it’s always nice to have something to remind you of a loved one as you never know what will happen and when. He’s also made a decision a year or so ago that he wants my Mum to inherit his very imposing numismatic collection, and it’s now in our house and my Mum is expanding it very dynamically and passionately, in cooperation with him, even though she wasn’t particularly interested in collecting anything before and I guess it feels more like a tradition very worth cultivating for her than something she’s personally interested in.

How about you and your family? 🙂
