My mom can't come to the blog right now. She's on some crazypants organizational kick, so moments ago I watched her head out the door armed with a list of errands to run and a stack of library books. I suspect that her newly formed impetus for finally getting something done around here is the result of the new year, but more than likely it's just a phase that will burn itself out in a few days.
I have to give the old lady credit, though, since she managed to actually tidy the place up a bit before taking a shower and then dressing herself in proper clothings for the day. I had hoped that she might have sported one of her new Aunt Chrissy Christmas sweaters, but she opted for a Notre Dame sweatshirt instead.
(Apparently, there is some sort of sporting contest this evening, and Mo-ther felt that it was her alumnal duty to show some form of support, even if it involves a twenty seven year old sweatshirt. I did notice, though, that she put her class ring back on, so can the proverbial leprechaun tattoo be too far behind?)
On the stitching front, progress is being made rather nicely on Shepherd's Bush Come Tarry. Methinks that this was the perfect project to have started, since it seems to be holding Mo-ther's attention for more than a few minutes at a time. I'm still waiting for the all-day organizing session that needs to take place up in the studio, but for now I'm satisfied that we're back in the Happy Chair with needle and thread once again.
I do hope that this finds you well and off to your own good start for 2013. Thank you for visiting with me today. I'm off to find a patch of sunshine for a little snooze, so I'll close for now with the promise that I remain your loyal and devoted friend.
With much love from your pal,
