I keep kind of dozing off. I didn't sleep badly last night, but perhaps not as well as I needed to. I'm still working on my co-worker's birthday afghan, and it's getting close to done. I love these large-needle afghan patterns. They're lovely and work up FAST. As soon as that's done, I'm knitting a baby blankie for her to give to her sister. She wanted to pay me but I refused. She does so much for me, a simple blankie is little enough in return.
I've invited her and her husband (whom I also love) over for Easter next week. They don't know yet if they can come or, if they do, if it would be for brunch or dinner. I'm planning right now for both. If they come for dinner, it will be either ham or leg of lamb (if the lamb is on sale) with gratineed (cheesy) potatoes and whatever green veggie catches my eye. Brunch would be Ted Allen's savory bread pudding (which has Swiss cheese, spinach and red onions) with sausage patties and some kind of fruit salad
Time for more knitting. Tomorrow co-worker and I are going down to San Francisco to see my Frank. My rolling Romeo will be thrilled to see -- her. I keep reminding myself that Mom isn't a woman. Mom is just Mom. However, he'll also shamelessly cheat on her with the waitress. Some things just never change, thank goodness!
