The working day of a school nurse:
Circa 1976
I could not love this photo or this woman more. Happy Mothers Day to my awesome mom. Who taught me everything I know. (On and off the needles.)

And people, make sure you have photos of you knitting. Lots of photos. Go now! Sit down, knit and make someone take a photo of you. (I will, too!)

What a great picture of your Mom. I'm a School Nurse - There has been a couple days that her pic has looked like my life - Day in the Life of a School Nurse Circa 2011. Happy Mother's Day to you and your lovely Mother.

Oooooooooh, this is good...knitting while on the job - wish I could come up with a way to do that! :) That's awesome! Great picture. I wonder if she still has that object (sweater?) she was knitting. Hope you had a really nice mother's day!

Good idea. Never think to have the kids take a picture of me. I took pictures of my own mother on Sunday. Her 88th birthday and Mother's Day. Whew!

Denise said...

Wow, now that you mention it, I don't think I have a picture of me knitting? I need to rectify that soon ;)

My mom was an obstetrical nurse, she's retired now, but she did a lot of knitting at work too...when it wasn't busy!Happy Mother's Day!

Wowza! I don't think I have even one picture of me knitting :( And having been a flight attendent for almost 18 years I did a TON of knitting back and forth across the country while all of my people slept on those red-eyes!
