Car replacement and Mother's Day
After several years of being accident free, Dh was rear-ended last Monday evening on his way home from work in Dallas. He was driving our 1994 Toyota Camry Wagon (left in photo), no finer car to be found anywhere! The boy driving the car that hit Dh flew over the hill and hit him from behind while he was stopped at the light. Dh was behind another person and our car was slammed into her car also, wrecking the front end, too. We had babied that car for several years and had over 350,000 miles on the original engine. I was hoping to make it to at least 400,000 miles, but I guess I won't ever know now. Dh will have the hard chore of finding a comparable car to replace it, probably another Toyota if I have any say so!
After a wonderful lunch at T.G.I. Friday's today, my son and gs presented me with this beautiful bouquet of wildflowers that they picked for me along the road to our house. DD called and said she had also sent a gift by mail, which hasn't arrived yet. Her Dh and the grandtwins are going to take her to the beach to help her celebrate the day.
The pattern for the Chicken Potholder pictured above can be found in a booklet called "The Ultimate Book of Potholders", issued by Annie's Attic. I recently found a free pattern online, here, that is very similar.
