For a Few More Minutes...

Abandoned book "Hide and Seek" by James Patterson ♦◊◊◊◊


...It's my birthday! Okay, to be fair the picture includes some sympathy cards for the loss of Mr. W's grandma and some thank you cards, but still... It's my birthday!!

I woke up to a wonderful multitude of flashy-bouncy-colorful-happyhappyjoyjoy posts celebrating my special day from my friends in forum-land. (Thank you again!)

Swag report: From mom, an Ott Light Floor Lamp to replace the one of mine whose ballast went kaput. From Mr. W., a ROKU box so I can watch Netflix and Amazon rental movies directly from computer to TV - no DVD's required! J2 gave me a skein of Noro Kureyon Sock in a yummy blue/black/gray colorway. My mother-in-law sent me a check, so I'll be able to get a little more of the yarn that I hinted about in a previous post. The Girl has mentioned something that she'd like to get for me (and I'm perfectly fine with it!). Oh, and I got a special Birthday Rubber Duckie when I stopped in at my favorite LQS!

Bday swagAnd then there's what I got for myself.

A sale-priced storage thingy to hang in the closet in my sewing room, a Boye Needlemaster set (is that redundant?), and a 3x18" rotary cutting ruler to replace one that I left at someone's house when I gave a class there. I had 40% off coupons at Joann Fabrics and Michael's, so I didn't pay full price for anything. In fact, I might even have enough left in my 'birthday account' to pick up another skein or two of the yarn I hinted about. :snerk:

There are about 80 pictures to be uploaded from the weekend with my family (I won't post them all, I promise!) and there is news on both the knitting and quilting fronts. But I'll save that for another post.

When it's not my birthday.
