I know, it will seem strange to be traveling to England without DH, I'm sure. I think you're leaving here as we go into another cold spell, so at least you won't be missing out on beautiful warm, sunny days back home!
No, I don't take it personally with my boys. Having raised 4 of them, I'm used to it. I must say I am disappointed that they haven't stopped by for the baskets yet tho. Especially thought my GD would be anxious to get hers. But then, they get/have so much, I don't know that they do get excited over an Easter basket.
What picture did your wall hanging for baby's room have? Or was it the baby's birthdate and other vital info? People do appreciate things like that. G.T.'s MIL talked Sunday about a piece I made for her when she bought her condo - how many years ago? I've lost track. It was I think the only piece I ever made of the tiny counted stitch. She has always had it hung just inside her door, and said she decided to hang it on the outside of her door, which opens onto a hallway in the building. Said she has gotten so many compliments on it, people who had not noticed it before when it was inside. Pleased me that she still has it up, also a birthday card, with poem, that I made her when she and I first met.
Wreath is drying, pretty shade of blue that came out from mixing some white and ocean blue. In the meantime I'll be cutting out some of the pieces I want to apply.
Baking some chicken for supper, and tho I won't use tomato sauce, will add some parmesan and mozzarella to perhaps some added cream of chicken soup and croutons on the top. Had an angus beef burger last night with the sauteed mushrooms and it was so good.
Bought a big enough container of oatmeal that I can make some oatmeal cookies - they've been on my mind.
