When Maddy queried yesterday about when and where Katie’s plane would arrive and who was going to get her and was it possibly possible that she could go, I was positively delighted to tell her that we’d already decided she could take the whole day off of school to greet her sister upon arrival. My days off are way too precious to spend mostly in a car, so it’s business as usual for me today. I’m figuring she’ll sleep a lot and settle in tomorrow, and my normal Wednesday off will work out nicely.
Well, it’s one of those days when I feel like I could foam at the fingertips for a while, but I don’t have time. So… a little rhodie in the garden that’s loaded and ready to *POP*! A gorgeous amaryllis in the garden room, adding to the riot going on in there right now with the geraniums, african violets, and a few other things; there’s another, deep red amaryllis that will bloom in another day or two.
Did I mention that I unpinned the body of Fib on Friday night and I’ve tried it on several times already. Oh, yes, it still needs to be seamed and I haven’t even finished the first sleeve yet, but I love it!! I’m a teensy bit concerned about the quantity of a couple of yarn colors, but I do have a few little balls of insurance that I hope will be enough. Not sure yet what I’ll do for the neck and button bands, I’ll think about that another day because…
Woohoo! Katie comes home today!!!
