Day Off

It was great to have a day off from school, with absolutely nothing that I had to do. For the most part I did things that I wanted to do. I mailed a care package to my mom. As many of you know she has ovarian cancer and has started chemo treatments. I made two chemo caps for her, one basic black and the other her favorite color lime green. I also sent her some candied ginger, many people have told me that it helps chemo related nausea. So far she hasn't needed it, hopefully she won't need it. I also got her a bottle of "gloves in a bottle". She loves it. If you haven't tried it, it is the best hand lotion.

I also finished another project. Some time last year I started a baby quilt, I think it was when I was recovering from my surgery. I had put it aside when I felt better. The only thing I needed to do was sew the borders on, which I managed to do yesterday. I actually bought this fabric about five years ago, on my first trip to Mary Jo's.

After sewing part of the day, I decided to watch a movie. For Christmas, my niece gave the whole series of "The Thin Man" movies. I love old movies. If you aren't familiar with them it is Myrna Loy and William Powell. They play a married detective couple. Very 1930's. They don't even sleep in the same bed. Boy have movies changed.

I love the "Thin Man" series; among my favorite movies of all time. They are so funny! I love how William Powell is always making cocktails. And all the great fashions!
