Happy Birthday to Me!

Birthday PresentsLook at all the lovely treats. Do I have the best friends or what? Look closely. Before she gave it to me, my friend Felicia took my new copy of More Sensational Knitted Socks and had the binding changed to a spiral. What a great idea! She also got my a copy of Knitter's Almanac and some merino/angora/casmere fiber to play with.

I got potpourri for one of the new bathrooms and more knitting books. One of my friends got me a copy of a book I already had so she's getting me something from one of my favorite LYS's instead. Sweet!

Hubbo and the girls did a great job too. Two cool knitty t-shirts and turtles. Yup, turtles. The green one was made by Stinkerbelle and the little black one was bought by DQ in Asheville was back in August. I am amazed. She's not usually great at keeping secrets but she was really smooth and stealthy about purchasing this little treat for me.

Overall, this was a pretty great weekend. I got to spend a lot of time with my friends and family. On Saturday night I enjoyed a delicious meal with really good friends which was made even more wonderful because the evening was a first for Hubbo and I. For the very first time we left the girls home alone. It was a little nervewracking but it worked out well. We came home to find the house still standing, unscathed and the girls hadn't killed each other. As far as I can see they didn't even fight while we were out. This could be the start of something really good.

Today, I spent my birthday taking a color class for spinners at Springwater Fiber Workshop. It was really nice and i'll tell you all about it tomorrow.

I had my copy of SKS spiral bound, too, and it's much easier to work with that way.
Isn't it great when you can leave them home alone? Hannah is 15 now and she's begging to be left home alone overnight. I'm not sure I'm quite ready for that, though.
Happy Birthday!
