Thread and Assorted

 all the pics are from Pinterest

this morning I gathered up containers full of thread
sewing and office supplies
some in bags, boxes and one basket
 
don't you know the minute mom saw the basket
she asked if she could have it
 
well, of course
since it was hers anyway
she had me take it from her room last year
 
now it's new to her again
a great treasure!
 



 
Mom, Ann and I
divided the thread into separate
light, dark and other containers
 
we organized the scissors, needled and pins
staplers, staples and paper clips
 
it took about an hour
while we talked about their great bingo wins this morning
how mom had an extra helping
of sauerkraut for dessert (Ann hates it)
and about why I have silver metallic thread...
 
pretty soon we were all ready for a nap

 
Mom needs help to bed
so we did one of her new puzzles while we waited
for the aides to get to us
(after lunch is a bust time)
 
these little projects make their day
mine too
 
Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
