Family Day

Yesterday was another wonderful family day. First had lunch with my Mom and had a great visit. Then she and I went to see my oldest daughter--and once again, another great visit. She has fibromyalgia and has not been feeling well--so we didn't overstay our welcome as we wanted her to be able to lie down. Then off to my Mom's for more visiting and a little knitting time. I had to laugh, because for some reason--unbeknownst to us--we have both been addicted to knitting dishcloths this month. (I call them dishrags) My husband insists he never heard of the term dishrags and where did it come from. Have called them that all my life. Will post pics at a later date. They are taken but not downloaded into the puter at this time. After leaving my Mom's, I went and saw--guess who--my youngest daughter and her kids--and of course Baby Joey is one of them. Alas--in my rushing to leave home I forgot the camera. :o( He has really grown, and when my youngest daughter turns 35 next week I will take pics for you all. I am starting to feel a little better--Christmas really tired me out this year. I have been working about 2 days a week--that way I can save some money and not work so much in the summer when it is really nice out. The warm temps and rain have melted away our foot of snow--but that is ok--as we are promised more snow later this week. It is supposed to hit 70 degrees today. Lovely NE Ohio! Well happy knitting to you all.

Sounds like you had a wonderful day with your family. Snow sounds great but I do enjoy being able to feel my toes. :) Glad your feeling better.

I had a nice visit, too. I did sleep 2 hours after you left though.

So are you going to Andi's house next week? I'd like to come if it works into school or I can work school around it...........

such lovely times with your lovely family! The weather here in NJ is awesome although a tad too windy see my blog to see why!!! I have been on a dishrag kick too (although I never keep a one , I give them all away)

Sounds nice and relaxing. We always called them dishrags, too. I theorize that the term comes from a long time ago, when people used scraps from worn out things, rags, in other words, for dish cloths.

Love the snow photos in the previous post - was migraining all week last, so I was only glancing and not comments on all my fav blogs.
