Today was an eventful day. First, I found out my swap partner was CT! (I've already scoped out some possible choices for you. hee hee hee) Then I called a parent of one of my former student's from four or five years ago. She told me yesterday that she had tomatoes to give me and my mom, so I stopped by their farm today and she gave me a whole box of green roma tomatoes! My mom and I are taking some out today and taking the box to church tomorrow so everybody else can get some if they want.
This evening a group of ladies from my church and from another church in our district got together for our quarterly birthday dinner. We ate at Golden Corral and celebrated the birthdays of 6 ladies, two of whom were absent. We had a great time though. We even drew names for our Christmas gathering. This will be interesting/exciting because I drew the name of someone that I don't even know. She married into the family and just moved to the area.
And about crocheting. My current project is for my mom. I got a KnitPicks catalog in the other day and since my mom and I share a post office box, she thumbed through it exclaiming about how pretty the shawls in there were. This was done one day before her birthday. Hint, Hint. So, I knew what she wanted but there wasn't time enough to work that miracle. I've never made a shawl before and I couldn't find the perfect cotton yarn for that pattern. I settled on an acrylic baby yarn in white. I think I'll like how it will come out in the end.
Here is just a beginning of this shawl. I have many more rows to go, but at least they are all decreases. :-)
