I have finished filling in Santa's face and have not started adding a pale blue to the pom-pom of his hat.
I have decided that the Bobble Baby blanket is the size that I want and I have started working on the border. This is a close-up of the border with lots of bobbles.
I am hoping life is going to be a little easier. As of this past Thursday, Mom has a full-time live in aide. There will actually be two aides, one every other week. I no longer have to sleep at Mom's house at night. I will still have to portion out her medicines and make freezer meals to have on hand. Mom is a picky eater and doesn't like what the aide cooks, so I try to have items in the freezer that just need to be heated. Heck, sometimes she doesn't even like what I cook and most of what I make for her I learned from her.
Hubby and I were able to enjoy a day out yesterday. We visited the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. It has a small parking lot, so there weren't a massive amount of people walking around.
These gorgeous bright red rhododendrons were the first flowers we saw. Isn't that color beautiful.
There is a very scenic river walk that we enjoyed immensely.
