My mother was down from Altona, NY (so far north that they can get take out food delivered from Canada!). She and I had a great time, knitting, watching t.v., knitting, playing with Zachary, knitting, you get the idea. She also loves to buy me things, which is great and great for my stash. My husband isn't happy about it, but he will live. Pictures tomorow, must run and get back to work. Love to all. I will leave you with a picture of how happy Zachary was that she was there (not enough to tear him away from the computer, mind you, but happy nonetheless).
