HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!! :)
It's been an EXCEPTIONALLY low-key and, dare I say, somewhat boring weekend around here.
We were planning to go somewhere, maybe to Valle, maybe even to Amapala...but no, we were foiled by the dreaded car AGAIN! Like it or not, our car is over 10 years old, and it seems to need quite a bit of work right now. This time it's the gas tank...it has a very inconvenient hole in it! How sad. (#%$&@*!!!!!!!) So it's going back to the mechanic tomorrow, for what I can only hope will be the last time. I mean really, what else can there be to fix?!
The nice thing is, besides the miles we've put onto the car, it's really a nicer car than when we bought it...new tires, rebuilt transmission, now a new gas tank...sigh.
Anyway, without wheels we were basically "stuck" at home, which isn't a bad place to be, just a little uneventful.
Chris has come up with some fun time-fillers (and de-stressers) recently...coloring and blowing bubbles!
I did have a function to attend yesterday, but luckily I was able to attend it over the Internet. Although I can't say it's better than my Alma Mater, Drake University, (in fact it's one of our big rivals), my "littlest' brother graduated Summa Cum Laude from Creighton University yesterday, and Creighton was awesome enough to stream the graduation online! (All 2 hrs and 40 minutes of it!)
I actually added another round to my white doily on Friday night...
I started it with thread in a lovely caramel brown color:
I'm considering adding another round similar in the pure-white around the outside, using the ring-chain pattern of the inside rounds, attaching it to the center picot of the two chains on the top of the outer motifs and having a free ring between each of the motifs...
I'd love to have your feedback and thoughts on that idea (or other suggestions if you have them)!
There are only 4 weeks of school left (!) and I have already completed and submitted all my lesson plans, so it's just implementation at this point...I can almost smell summer!
Hope all you mothers had a wonderful day! :)
