Seems the older I get the faster time gets away from me. But that is ok, I know deep down there are only 24 hours in a day.
Crafting news: I am making an angel afghan for my mother in law. She really likes angels and I found it on Annie's Attic's daily free pattern. It is fillet crochet and I really like it. I am 1/2 way done with it and am striving to get the rest done by Wednesday so I can present it to her when we go to visit them this week. I also have a prayer shawl on my prayer shawl loom. It is for my Daugher. I have been promising myself that I would do one for her and so now seemed like a good time. Of course it is on hold until the afghan is done.
I am hoping to get back into my sock knitting in the very near future. I ordered some new circular needles so I could do more than one pair of socks at a time. I love the magic loop method and it seems so easy to me once I get into the grove of counting stitches.
Family life: My Father in law is starting to go downhill pretty fast. (he has lung cancer) So my hubby and I are leaving Wednesday afternoon to go to Nevada to visit them and see what we can do to help. My MIL has asked him several times to let her call in hospice but he refuses it. So I guess our first line of business is to convince him to let them evaluate him and maybe get him on some oxygen to make it easier for him to breath. We are also planning on getting their cemetary plots taken care of while we are there. They have a Veteran's cemetary close to where they live. After that I think we can relax for a couple of weeks. My DH wants to go up to Nevada for Father's Day. I TOld him to go up on the 7th as our neice is graduating from college and that is the day of her party. I told him to take the whole week after off and just stay there with him.
In June I am going to Albuquerque to visit our Daughter and Son in law. The SIL just graduated also and they are having a congratulatory party for him. I love Albuquerque so am really looking forward to that trip too.
Not a real exciting life but a might bit stressful right now. I will fill you all in when we get back from Nevada.
Happy Mother's day to all of you Mom's!
