I managed to get through another day . . .

Today's Writing Prompt: Time Capsule

Imagine you buried a time capsule 20 years ago.  Today you get to open it!  What would you have placed inside?


I would have been 34 and I have to say I can't really remember what I was doing then.  Probably working, looking after my family and volunteering.  I may have included a journal I'd just filled, a newspaper for the date the capsule was buried, some favourite photos, a favourite book, something I had made by hand like a scarf or some mitts.  I'm sure I would have added a photo of my family.
