I’m back!

May 28, 2006

I had a lovely time in West Texas with my family…

I was greeted by the cute face of my mom’s dog, Loli…

I had four slices of my mom’s French toast, which I ate sprinkled with salt (my dad sprinkles it with salt and pepper, and my mom dips it in grape jelly)…

I spent lots of time in my mom’s beautiful back yard…

And talked to the birds…

I got to eat my mom’s pot roast with mashed potatoes, salad, and guacamole…

And raid my mom’s craft closet, filled to the brim with fabric and trim…

And yarn…

From which I learned to crochet (thanks, Mom and Michelle!)…

We had delicious chocolate cake that my sister baked for my parents’ 38th anniversary (mmmm…chocolate buttercream icing)…

And then I came home, spent time with my love, and got a fun, fun pedicure…

I’m off to attempt crochet on my own!

    Do you have the new Debbi Stoller book? Aside from the cool patterns, it has really great instructions and pictures for beginners… Have fun crocheting!

    Sally, I inherited so much from my mom…looks, charm… ;) Amy, I don’t have that book yet, though I might put it on my “to buy” list soon. I do have her knitting book, and I haven’t quite made it all the way through, so I’m still stuck at knit and purl. I’ll have to show you guys my first forays into crocheting…quite funny.
