Time Well Spent

It was muggy and raining outside this morning - the perfect day for staying inside to craft! My Mom called me (she has been fighting a cold for about two weeks now and finally felt bad enough to stay home from work) and was wondering what I was doing for the day. I normally work Wednesdays, but I had the day off today. So I told her that I had bought all the supplies to make a wreath for a local customer yesterday, but I didn't have any time to make it, so that is what I planned on doing. I never get to spend time with her during the week, so I packed up all my tools and supplies and headed over to her house. I was excited to show her the flowers and ribbon I had purchased for this wreath. She is one of my biggest fans and she always loves seeing the new items. When I finally got to her house, I unloaded my car, which took three or four trips, and set up my area in the living room. We decided to watch The Bourne Ultimatum which she had never seen before (I know - I couldn't believe it either!). I started the wreath as soon as the movie started and finished it right around the end of the movie! It was great getting to visit with my Mom - just the two of us! And the wreath turned out gorgeous. I haven't taken pictures of it yet, but as soon as I do, I'll get them posted on here for everyone to see. Other than the fact that she was sick, today turned out to be a great day!
