Mother's Day


The girls and hubby made French toast for breakfast before church. We had lunch at home and then went to the mall. I got a manicure, the girls’ idea.  We went to the new “ Star Trek” movie and ate way too much popcorn. It was a really good movie. Then for dinner we went to Olive Garden, one of my favorite places. We split a raspberry cheesecake for dessert. Then we came home and  I played on the computer for a bit before going to bed. It was a great day.

Mom and my Aunt are with Grandma visiting cousins in S.D.  Her phone does not have service there so I only got to talk to her a little bit when she called on Grandma’s phone after dinner.

I finished the pillow cases, one knitted and one sewed. The knitted one is black on one side and purple on the other side. It is really soft and Bitty has claimed it as hers. I am still spinning the white wool.

The dead is alive again.
Avocado trees will die when you move them from Florida to Minnesota. Our avocado's did great in Florida, they lived on the balcony. They both died in February when we came up from Florida.
Notice the dead leaves that go crunch when you touch them.
We tossed one of them out. About a month ago Hubby noticed something one the one avocado that we didn't toss out. It was green stuff on the base of the plant. He put a post-it-note on it so I wouldn't toss that one too, and watered it. Now it is alive and growing. We are truly amazed. I didn't think dead avocado's came back to life. The other amazing thing is our other plant, the royal poinciana. It has never done really well, but died in the move also. It has been sitting in the pot dead since February. This morning Hubby noticed it had green leaves on it now also. I watered it and moved it into the sun. We will see how it does, it is a very picky plant, but there is hope.

I have not been knitting much since I got the spinning wheel. I have been doing a lot of spinning. I will get some pictures of the yarn up soon. I am knitting a Shawl for Jody , a draft stopper for Mom, and a pillow case for me.
School work is going well. Bitty is done with language and is working extra on her math. Bubba is working hard to get her stuff done also so they can play outside in the nice weather.
