I am not all that big on manufactured holidays and I feel that you should take care of your MoM and her needs everyday, not just on a holiday. That said, I did have a very nice Mother's Day. I went to brunch with my husband and children. I had a really nice salad and some fruit and a REALLY strong Cosmopolitan. (I only needed one!) Brian gave me chocolate and Patrick gave me a lovely silver bracelet. My husband Joe gave me a couple of hanging baskets of plants and some caladium bulbs that I need to plant. I also got a cedar chest from Joe to put woolens in but I need to put it together. I am having a lot of trouble with arthritis in my knee so I haven't put it together yet. Normally I would have open the box immediately and put it together but I am just not up to it right now. Hopefully later this week!
I need to schedule therapy on the knee this week and I hope to get some pain control that way. It has been hell for the past couple of weeks and I am really having a hard time walking. I got a shot of cortisone in it last week and it helped but I need more work on it to be able to get around!
Tomorrow night is the Madison Knitters Guild end of the season meeting and Brown Bag Exchange. I am so excited about my shawl and really hoping it will be well accepted! I am packaging it in a fabric bag I made. I still have to make a drawstring for it tomorrow. I sure hope whoever gave the yarn will like it...
Hope your Mother's Day was a pleasant one! Did you get a chance for tea and cakes?
Talk to you later,
