Easter Sunday and Other Things...
These Sundays it's Sunday Morning, on CBS, coffee and a cranberry orange muffin, and knitting. This morning was quite a blue morning, not only for the beautiful sky, my blue and white mug, and the blue tweed sock I'm knitting, but also because it brought the news of the death of CBS-60 Minutes anchor Mike Wallace. I was saddened to learn of his death, as he was one my mother always admired, and while, at 93, he has lived one of those proverbial "well-lived" lives, it's still sad to see this era of news reporters leaving us. He came into our living rooms when smoking was accepted practice among (mostly) men, and finally admitted to his battles with depression, helping so many to be able to acknowledge their own private battles with that disease. So farewell, to someone who truly did make a difference in many people's lives. We should all live so well.
Then the phone rang, and it was Dear Daughter informing me they were on their way (I wasn't even dressed yet!). So sure enough they gave me a bit of headway, then she and the three boys arrived (Daddy was home with a still-sleeping little girl). They brought me my "Easter Bucket"
Each one of them had colored an egg specially for me, DGS#3 had done the "purple/pink" one, DGS#2 the red one, and DGS#1 the blue/green one. So there's lunch for this week! :) I'll make egg salad to enjoy on the bagel thins I picked up at the store. (and yes, they didn't forget Nana's love of chocolate, but they didnt' overload me, fortunately...I try very hard not to buy too much of the holiday candy as I don't control the munching of it one bit!)
There was a bit of household chores that needed doing, and of course, with the Olde Liberty Fibre Faire less than a week away, I sewed. Below are two small drawstring bags I made today along with a baglet set including the newest option, the pen/pencil case. I know some of you think this print is busy, but I can't stop myself, I just adore it's happy red/navy/lime green on white argyle!
Yesterday I made more of the small drawstring bags:
and am trying to not stick to only sheep and knitting themes, but also have some florals and such.
I did a bit of crocheting last night, and while I was doing so, the "kids" nodded off together - IN THE SAME BED!
It's really a snug fit, as neither one of them could be said to be within their weight range. In fact, I keep getting asked how I can lose weight so well and the cats don't.
Hmm...Is it always the Mom's fault?
