It’s my Birthday!
I had a great day today. First my sister posted this virtual cake on our family blog. I LOVE it!
Then, I got all of this wonderful stuff in a package from one of my Ravelry birthday Twins. This is the second year that we have done an exchange, and it is a lot of fun to get a package from another knitter, especially who has the same birthday. I was wondering how she knew that I loved all things Paris and Poodles, then looked at the info I wrote about myself…
The yarn is a Canadian company, Tanis Arts Fiber, that I have never tried. I will have to think of the perfect sock pattern for these.
My next step was to put on my favorite shoes:
My favorite Fall sweater:
And my favorite purse:
And head into the City to check out a couple of new yarn stores that opened in the past year. While neither proved interesting to me, it was a great day to be out, and I found some fabulous lamps that I want to get whenever my basement gets in order.
Next, a nap to continue to combat the head cold that I have had all week.
Then, a visit from a good friend, calls from friends, lots of texts, Ravelry notes, Facebook wishes, and finally 3 good friends and a bottle of wine on my front porch. My husband is out shopping for dinner fixings, a Nicoise salad, and more wine.
This year perhaps more than ever I appreciate my health, family and the amazing friends that I have. That is a good Birthday.
