Each (phase) is a challenge to get through. But we always get through, don't we?
This year she didn't ask for a thing. Nothing. Very hard to get something out of her, and I usually listen carefully at what she likes to get ideas, but nothing. Other than a car which wasn't going to happen, the only thing left was a phone. Now that meant changing from a single plan to a family plan. I was the only one who had a phone, and I've had it since 2001. The plan doesn't even exist any more lol. Shocked at the prices, I had to do a lot of thinking on this one, discussing with the hubby, etc. We decided to go for it, and thankfully George's job gives a discount on the plan. Anything helps. George has never wanted a phone. He calls them baby monitors. Always being checked up on lol. He would tease his friends who had one. Well, now they are teasing him and I love it! So we let Nicole pick out her phone. Her and I ended up getting the same phone, same color.
It was a really quiet morning and then Andrew came over. She opened up her gift from us. I had to get her something to open for today. She got a few tops and a necklace.
Nicole and Andrew checking out the picture they were taking of the chef.
We had cake later on after dinner.
I don't want to forget Thursday and the hook in at Grantstreet. It was a busy day. People were busy hooking and buying. I was kept busy :). Brenda had brought 2 of her paintings that she just did. She took a class, was given an blank canvas, and instructions on how to make the strokes. She did a wonderful job. I love the colors she used!
Judith brought a quilt she just finished.
Janice was busy transferring a pattern. Actually, I think she did 2 that day.
She brought along a bottle of home made chocolate milk that she said is now being delivered by some Amish out her way. It was delicious!
Barb got a gift from her Secret Pal this week too. Some lovely pansies, and a birdhouse. So sweet!
Joanne drove all that way again to hook with us! She managed to finish up what was on her foundation. She is such a FAST hooker! Love how her colors just pop. I did have a picture of her, but can't post it. I will send it to her directly :). Lets just say it's a picture of something on her head. Only she didn't put it there, Linda did lol. You'll be getting it soon Joanne!
I did manage to hook some later in the day. I got all the way around on my border once lol. And filled in just a tad on the house. I didn't have much of that wool with me. Left it at home for some reason.
Sherry stopped by and was working on her horse. The hit or miss is really turning out nice!
And Tanya's background is filling in so beautifully!
It sure has been a long day. Tomorrow is Easter, and it will be a quiet day. Craig and Lake will be coming over for a visit but not to eat with us. I'll take my mil something to eat and sit with her for a bit. Then if all goes well, I want to sit and hook.
Wishing everyone a very Blessed Easter tomorrow. My heart just sings knowing that Christ rose again for you and for me...... What he went through is too much for me to fathom. THAT is love! Believing is everything, and He will always, always, give you the peace and comfort when you need it. Just take the time to sit quietly in His presence, talk with Him, and you'll feel it......
