Please, don't tell my professor that I haven't been working on my instructional technology project 24 hours a day!! I've been procrastinating.......
On Sunday my daughters and husband took me to a mother's day brunch and afterward we did our traditional Mother's Day activity--went to the local arboretum to view the lilacs in bloom. This is the 30'th consecutive mother's day that we've done this--except for the year we were in Spain but I figure that doesn't count. Daughter #1 who remained in the US visited the lilacs in our place.
Put your nose into this clump of blossoms and smellllllll!!
In addition to ooohing and aaahing we take pictures. I've trained daughter #2 well--she and I have a contest to see who can take the best (and the most) photos. she always wins!
Last night I went to my church knitting group and we took this photo of 8 of the 10 members who worked on the blanket. The blanket brought in $1,130 to the auction proceeds!!! We sold raffle tickets for $5 each, 5 for $20. This was the highest earning item at the auction!!! And, surprise of all, a member of the group got the blanket!!! She is the one on the lower left.
Also, last night I went to the local Knitters' Guild stash reduction sale--I gave away lots of baby yarn. To people who knit for charity. And I purchased only sock yarn, of which there was only a little.
Now, I'm updating the blog, downloading photos, etc., etc. Anything to stay away from that horrible project!!! Here I go, back to the school work.....I'm going, really I am, after I check a few knitting blogs.....
Oh, by the way, if you want to see LOTS of other photos of lilacs, just click on the flicker box in the upper right.
