We have this great tradition at our house. (at least I like it a lot)
Every year for our anniversary I get a bouquet with one more rose, for the newest year. This year my flowers numbered 43, and were absolutely gorgeous. We picked them up 2 days before our trip, so we wedged them into the back of the SUV, between the golf bags, and took them with us, to be able to enjoy for the week with our friends in Savannah. They lasted a total of 10 days, and still looked decent. (don't ever cut the stems without having them under water) actually, we didn't even cut them, we just added a bit of water every day or so,and they did great... Thanks Dierbergs-- you always do a super job on my flowers !!!

The word was out..... The "Nannies" who take care of the little ones in Haiti needed APRONS ! They needed them with pockets to tuck necessary things in, too.... Here are some I've made, and am getting ready to send. Mostly they were made with pillowcases that I've found and washed, and some double bias tape and a homemade pattern.... Oh, also, I used my NEW SERGER on the edges..... It's just a dream to use. (got a deal, the Jackman's fabrics is going out of business)
If you'd like to join in and sew some aprons, little girls pillowcase dresses, or make some "ditty bags" to send items to Haiti, click here...... http://haitirescuecenter.wordpress.com/

My daughter and I have our own little book club. We decided to choose a book, and read it together, talking about it as we go. (She's on the west coast and I'm in Missouri) Our first selection was the diary of Anne Frank. It really is an amazing account of the life of a Jewish family at the time of Hitler's Germany. I'm almost through it, and our next selection will probably be something like Twain or Dickens...
