I don’t know where to start really. I had a wonderful 57th Birthday.
These flowers were a total surprise. Have I told you that when the doorbell
rings here, well it is usually the Jehovah Witnesses. No one else really comes here unannounced. So to have the FLOWER delivery was amazing. This arrangement is glorious. I LOVE the orange flowers. My friend overwhelmed me with this gift.
And if I weren’t spoiled enough, just look at the prize package Kim D. sent me. Tiger Lily is a Mrs. Crosby yarn. I’ve never worked with it but it looks and feels knit worthy of a shawl. The squish factor is superb.
Fireman and Zach did some woodworking for me. I have one mushroom that Fireman carved last fall. I Really wanted another. It was Zach’s first time with with a chain saw. All fingers remain intact. Great birthday gift.
Al and Zach blew me away by getting me a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. I’ve never had one. Well, that’s not entirely true. I bought one at a flea market that was very old and the bowl jumped off every time you tried to use it. Picture butter flecks all over the wall and counter…….
I’ve been impatiently mixing with a hand mixer for my whole life. Since I go into a sugar coma watching Great British Baking Show episodes, (while knitting of course) they decided I needed one.
There were other wonderful wishes and gifts and cards. I missed my mom. I told her last year that it was my birthday and we sang together to me. I’m fine really, just one of those milestones. I was with my sister last weekend in Minnesota and we shared very fun mom stories.
Finally, my sister has begun to paint again after a 30 year break. She painted me a watercolor of an Irish cottage, with sheep! I will show you soon. That painting means to me: My Irish nana, my mom, my sister and all of you who share our sheepy connection.
Enough about me! I loved your responses to yesterday’s Q and A. Glad to know we all have that WORD that we misspell. I thought it was just me!
