Happy Birthday Isabelle!

Wow Granddaughter Isabelle is 1 year old today! That has gone by way too quick. She sure keeps Mommy busy as she has been walking for a couple of months already. She likes to climb and get into things all the time.

Mother's Day gifts

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. My daughter and one granddaughter came down the week before and my son came on Mother's day. My daughter gave me money to spend on myself and a card witha message from her heart! This was a great gift as she lives far away and can't get me gift certs for around here.
My son gave me a real rose that is preserved in gold!
I will always have a rose now! It came with a vase also. It is very lovely.

new job

I guess I forgot to mention I got a part time job, very part time....
I deliver flowers for my very local florist! I can actually walk to work! I deliver on Mon, Wed, Thurs. afternoons. It is a very nice job. I love driving, I love flowers and I love making people smile! How cool is that!

I work enough to get some yarn money, I guess... very big grin! :-D

Unexpected city visitors

I looked out the patio door one morning and noticed 2 male ducks following a female around. As soon as I got my camera and opened blinds, 1 male flew off. I am no where near a lake or river so the ducks were so out of place.

I am working on monthly dishcloth and started some socks using lime green Fixation yarn. The pattern is a nice little easy cable using no cable needle. Fixation socks just feel so good on the feet that I had to knit more.
