As you may remember, my birthday was last Sunday. I received a lot of goodies, from friends and family, and some from bloggie friends as well. The cupcakes were brought to me all the way from Debbie’s Bakery in Denver, Colorado, to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. They were sweet and delicious, and very much appreciated. Thank you Becca and Ken, you know I love you. And be sure and tell little Jessica they were the perfect ones for a birthday.
The fabric squares below were not exactly a birthday gift–I won them in a giveaway from Art Gallery Fabrics. But they arrived in the mail right in time for my birthday and made me feel really special. There are forty 6 1/2 inch squares, all different, and I can just see a quilt in my future, soon, made with them. Aren’t they pretty?
The next day, I got some cool stickers and blank note cards from Drama Mama. She is a cool lady who lives in Washington state, and works on a ferry boat. What a neat job she has! Just look at those creative stickies! I can’t wait to use them.
As mentioned above, my daughter, Becca and her boyfriend, Ken, came to visit for a week. There will be more about their visit later, but just look at all the goodies they brought me:
Garlic Dipping Oil with seasonings, yummo! This will be good with some home made gluten free bread, I’ll have to wait til next week to make it though.
Becca is a knitter. She made me this cute hat. It has an opening in the back, with cutie red and yellow flower buttons, so that I can put my new longer hair in a ponytail and pull it through. It makes me wish a little bit that it was cold enough to wear it already:
See, it looks cute on me, and of course, it is orange, one of my favorite colors. (guess she knew that, huh?)
She took care of me from top to bottom: new Amy Marsh (from Little Women) knitted slippers. I am wearing these right now–no need to wait til winter for warm feet.
My daughter Emily, who lives in Georgia, is sending me a care package with several tubes of my favorite deoderant since I can not find it here to buy it myself. Thanks, Emily, I know it is a weird birthday gift, but I love it that you are sending it to me!
I got lots of birthday cards, from my son and his wife, my mother, my friend Gaelyn. But my favorite card this year is the one in the video below, sent to me from my step-daughter, Becky. It makes me smile every time I open it.
