This and that and the other thing

I've been knitting and crocheting and such - with little to show for it because (1) most things are not yet finished and (2) I keep forgetting to take pictures. I did finish and mail this lovely lapghan.

I hope to finish the others by the weekend and promise pictures next time I post.

Mom's radiation treatments have started.  She has 33 consecutive weekday visits with the Radiology techs.  Monday visits include a visit with the Radiation Oncologist as well.  These are very hard on her.  It hurts her to lay down on the hard table she must lay down on to receive treatment.  Because they have to take more time with her, we weren't given a choice on the time of day.  We'll be visiting Annapolis every week day at noon until December 4th or 7th (depending on what they do for Thanksgiving).

The Herceptin infusion treatments continue every Monday morning as well.  So, we'll be early to the local hospital and leaving right from there to head to the radiology place in Annapolis for the next 6 or 7 Mondays.

Send up some prayers, or good vibes, or mojo - whichever you choose - we could sure use it!

All is revealed

I was away for a few days, helping my aunt in Florida.  When I arrived at my home, a lovely surprise awaited me.

Ashley, my Secret Pal 14 spoiler, had sent my final package.

From Drop Box

A warm and cuddly hat in mmmm-Malabrigo, 4 skeins of Sublime superfine merino wool, a handy yarn requirements chart to carry in my bag - so when I run into a great sale I'll know just how much yarn to buy for that fabulous sweater! - and SOAK to clean up my knitting!

Thank you, Ashley. You have been a great spoiler.
