First, & most importantly ...
I sure am : )
Secondly, my birthday was last Wednesday. It started out with this.
A cup of Birthday Tea by Adagio Teas : ) It has sprinkles in it!!!
Pretty cool, huh : )
I had a very nice day. John had lots of surprises planned for me. He took me out to breakfast, & then we went to the mall where he bought me some of my favorite Teavana tea as well as a box of Godiva Open Oysters. I know that the angels must serve Godiva Open Oysters to Jesus on special occasions in heaven : ) There were various gifts given throughout the day, & then he took me to dinner at one of my favorite places to eat ... Big Boy! I had the always wonderful bacon burger with onion rings. In lieu of making myself a birthday cake, I planned instead to bring home a slice of BB's pumpkin pie as my birthday dessert, which I did. I ate it while we watched a little something on DVD. Within 2 hours, my perfectly lovely day turned into a nightmare. Food poisoning!!! I'm sure the pie was the culprit. The remainder of my birthday until about 3 a.m. the following morning was not fun. I'll spare you the details. John wanted to take me to the ER. I told him I'd be fine. I'm still not quite back to normal today, but I'm better.
On Friday afternoon I felt up to taking a little walk up & down the street. The fall colors have been so pretty here this year ... I brought my camera along to share some of them with you.
They're all so pretty, aren't they? There was a nip in the air along with the smells of autumn. Truly beautiful!
I've continued crocheting & have started a new blanket based on fall colors.
And I finished the ripple blanket I gave you a peek at last time : )
It's a gift for John but he doesn't know it yet : )
I also finished my yarn bag pieces (it was also available for peeking at in my last post) but I haven't sewn the pieces together yet. Maybe I can share that next time : )
I will leave you with one final photo ... a birthday gift from our poodle princess, Vickie ... a cross stitched pincushion with a pomegranate design. I've taken several photos but can't get any of them to truly show what a beautiful pincushion this is & how beautifully it has been stitched & finished. This is the best I could do. Thank you again Vickie!
