Pondering Rivet

I am joining Brenda at BYG Adventures for a pondering today. The word to ponder today is Rivet.

The first thought to come to mind was “Rosie the Riveter”. This name was given to the women who replaced the men in the factories during World War 2. As the men went to fight the war the factories took in the women to do the work. Women were no longer expected to work as secretaries or teachers. They got their hands dirty. When the war was over the women did not return to the conventional jobs. Besides getting the vote this was revolutionary.

I am also riveted by the actions of my grandchildren. It was just one year ago that our grandson T joined our family. It has been amazing watching him grow from a babe in arms to a just about walking toddler. he has quite the personality. He loves to play cars and is developing a wicked throwing arm. He has a fascination with pots and pans as well as the cupboard they belong in.

Our 3 year old grandchildren E and F know what they want and will do anything to get it. 6 year old E and 7 year old L are getting way too smart. They both love school and it is obvious when they talk to Grammy and Grampy.

I don’t do the construction in our house however I do step over the rivets when DH is working on his many projects. His next project is the basement bathroom. That will keep him riveted for a while.

Have a riveting week!


  1. It sounds like your grandkids keep you riveted. That is as it should be!

  2. No wonder your grandchildren are reveting.
    Have a great day!
