Happy Easter

Happy Easter on this early cold Easter. The last time Easter was this early was 93 or so years ago. This only person I know who was around then was my grandmother and even she was a child!

This will be a quiet day for me. My son is still in Florida working. Caroline and I were supposed to go upstate to spend the day with my family at my sister's house. I've had a little bit of the colitis I had in the fall so I've been staying close to home these last few days. I really want to get into work this week so I think rest and fluids at home is better then travel and holiday foods!

The silver lining is that I get to work on my pinwheel sweater for another chunk of time. I put the edge on a holding yarn and started working on the 1st sleeve. I tried it on and I think I'm going to like it. I would love to have it done for that sweater period that leads into summer. A few years ago it was my goal to have a pair of hand knit socks for every day I wanted to wear socks. I do and it's great. Now my goal is to have a handmade sweater or shawl for each time I want to wear one.

Aw, that is too bad that you missed the holiday with your family, but I can certainly understand your practical approach! After dealing with Mark being sick for what seems like forever, the practical approach seems much wiser, as there are many more times to get together!

We also had a rather quiet Easter Day except that Mark surprised me by going out to the truck and insisting we go out for a little bit. I do believe he is finally on the mend! Phew!!!!

Hope you got lots done on your sweater. Now I need to Google to see just what you are up to!!!!!
