I really want to learn to knit... my Aunt Sue tried to show me, but she said I do it backwards:think I will be praying that you won't be needing any colonoscopy! Joanne - Can't wait to see your patch-ghan... and if it's 12 or 9. Either way, it sounds beautiful! How is your DD feeling? Is she getting morning sickness? Stacy - Woot for Astronomy class!

That felt really great to finish! tomorrow we have another visit from the regional manager, who is quite partial to flowers. I hope he is pleased with how things are looking! Other than that, I have about a dozen spring arrangements to finish up tomorrow, and to decorate just my rack tops and the top of 1 shelf. Oh, and my Ashlar? It's pattern is getting a makeover! She is changing her name to "the Re-hash-lar":lol The pattern is rewritten up to row 4 so far.... i guess my mind needing some bending:devil It's a fun puzzle, and as you know, it's how I roll!

I got just enough time at the end of the day to do a quick clean up of the flower racks and make my "hot list" for next week ! There is a woman who works only on Sundays, who I am that she will be able to help a little tomorrow. I feel like I am a bit behind the 8-ball. Maybe they will be able to let me work a little extra next week, jut to get things up to snuff The regional manager will be back next week, and he is expecting a whole list of things to be done that aren't. I hope you all have a great Sunday morning. I will check in between laundry and Ashlar-ing:wink thanks for listening, my dearest besties.... You are Da Bomb-Diggity-est-ness! Love you guys!
