Mother's Day came partly early today

Hey all,Just wanted to say: Happy Mother's day to you all.
Also wanted to tell you about an early gift I got today. Here are 2 pictures. We did the usual aturday thing after going into Houston foran Eye Clinic visit at the VA. Michael and I did our Trader'sVillage Flea Market Stroll.Then he said I want to take you to Lunch today for Mother's Day,we're going to dinner tomorrow after church but I want to dosomething special now. So we went to the Golden Corral. Then hesaid I need to run and errnad before we go home so I just continuedto knit while he drove. Well we end up at the local yarn shop and Isaid hey what are we doing here. His reply "to get you yourMother's Day gift, I thought that he was getting me a gift certificate.
Lordy, I nearly passed out!! I started to smile and grin and the owner handed me the pink set of needles. So I am now the proud owner of the Pink set of Denise Circular needle set!! I wanted the pink because $5.00 goes the Sue Ireland Breast Cancer Research foundation. 2 years ago I discovered a lump in my breast and thought I would die. It wasn't cancer thank you Jesus but the stress, anguish and the waiting to get the results were the longest weeks of my life. So that is why I chose the pink because I want a cure to befound for this horrible disease. I hope to have 2 new pictures for the next post which will be in a few days. I am finishing up 2 projects tht I have been presently working on.
The weather is getting warmer and in about a week our pool will be ready and I will be able to sit on the edge and dangle my legs in the water. Then soon I will begin my water aerobics. We have purchased 2 cute life jackets for the dogs so they can go swimming with us and also on the off shot that they fall in the pool if we are inside they won't drown. We are looking into getting an alarm system for the pool. They are a bit more expensive for in-ground pools. Well y'all have a great day!!

My visit to RI and Spa Sock progress

Well it's been a crazy time for me. Went back to visit and see my daughter graduate from Tech School. We are so proud of her. Michael left her a beautiful message on my cell phone since he did not have her cell number. Then of course had to see the grand kids. Aren't they cuties? They have grown quite a bit since the last time I saw them.

Well I finally finished one Spa sock and should have the other done by the end of the week. Then I will start on the pair for my sister. I finally got the yarn in lilac. Well it is a subdued lilace and I have a nice shade of green for te cuffs.

My mom loves the shawl/wrap I am making abnd has asked me to get the exact same yarn so she can make one too. So I got the yarn the circular neddle and the pattern for her and will mail it all this weekend. Well it is almost 1:15 in the morning and I need to do a little more work on the spa sock and then I need to get to bed. Michael has oral surgery tomorrow so I will have to make the drive into Houston, YUCK road construction sucks!!
