today was good; we spent a portion of the early afternoon running about, getting me a few things (bread bowl, bread board, two pair of jeans, knitting looms) and had lunch out (huddle house). we watched a movie, chatted, and had sandwiches on homemade bread this evening. mom leaves early in the morning (she has an eight hour drive home). it was a great visit, even if it was way too short (better than being way too long, right?). mom's visits usually are too short but very good!
