I got mom a book called Stitch N Bitch because that's what mom does when she knits ;)
I stopped at the mom and pop flower shop and got mom an indoor plant. She's been wanting a plant for the living room and I figured it was better then some flowers that will die within a week. The plant matches the living room and dining room and it isn't toxic to pets. It's a broad leaf plant with red, yellow, and of course green. She liked it :)
We are making BBQ london broil (hmmm), baked potatos, peas, and salad for dinner.
