Happy Mother's Day to you all
Happy Mother's Day weekend to you all. Mom's, aunts, sisters, grandma's, everybody. Hope you feel love and loving.
Finally some knitting to show. My Haven shawl is just started but I love the colors. It feels right while I knit it. That is a good thing. I know when my knitting feels right. I will be knitting it in Minnesota next week on the car ride up. I think I may cast another one on, if I finish this one on the way up. I have some neat dark blue yarn that Al discarded about a year ago. It would be a lovely dark shawl. I like to knit the same thing twice often, I found. Two TOASTS, two pairs socks, two easy cowls.....I guess I like to repeat.
We pulled off a 50th surprise party for Fireman last night. So much fun.
I have some lovely gifts from Fireman and my kids for MOm's day. Two dozen red roses from Fireman for having his kids...awwww. A lovely necklace from my friend Ann's site. The silver heart and pearl necklace.
Al and Pete and Zach gave me this absolutely beautiful umbrella with butterflies on it. I Hope it rains soon. And they gave me something very fun: Tina Feys' new book: Bossy Pants!
One of the reasons Fireman's party went so well for me was : I was the boss of it.!!!
I am a very good planner and I like being the boss of it all. No one to argue with me about the food, the caterer, the drinks, the list....... Me, myself and I did a fine job. And we don't argue a bit. Al and Pete and Zach were the best kind of help...they did just what I asked and didn't challenge a thing. BOSSYPANTS was the perfect book for me!
Enjoy the weekend. Happy Happy Mothers day to everyone of you.......
and the ones of you with furr babies, you too are so special!
