My swap partner for the Sweet Liberty Swap was Michelle at Simple Pleasures.  So many goodies - a red,white & blue fabric swag -  a towel with Be Happy hand stitched on it  -  a wonderful wood bowl full of waxed bowl fillers - a heart Liberty pillow - a ceramic salt shaker that matches my kitchen dishes - a cute penny paper clip & pouch - a great penny/sheep  candlemat.  I love everything.  Can't decide what I like best.
 A special surprise were goodies for my furbaby buddy Jack.  He's wearing his new scarf and included in the ditty bag was a  doggy frame for his picture and a block with his name  and a paw print on it.  Jack and I thank you for thinking of him.
I love all the goodies, Michelle, especially the candlemat.   Thanks to Amy of Bumble Bee Lane for doing the swap and giving me Michelle for a partner.

For the past week, I've been visiting my son, DIL and 22 month old grandson in their new home.  They were transferred here in March.  It's a lovely area and a beautiful new house in the French style.  My grandson is a very happy child, but misses his friends and stimulation of his daycare.  My DIL is't working yet & would like to do a home school daycare type program for him.  Does anyone have any info about this, books they have used, etc.?  I would appreciate it.  He had his first T2 incident the other day (we know about those, don't we!)  The library story hour doesn't restart until June.  We're taking him to a Mommy & Me gym glass tomorrow.  Thanks.

I walked around New Orleans for 3 hrs. last Sat.  It's quite a place.  I took lots of pictures that I will post after I get home.

Thanks again for any info.
