I'm growing up

Yesterday I turned 51. I enjoyed turning 50 and being 50, but 51 has a kind of a lack luster feel to it. But, I had a wonderful day. My kids, I still call them kids, though they are 22 and 19, busted their butts to make sure I had a great birthday. I wish I could have taken pictures of the dinner my daughter fixed. OMG, Java crusted steaks with a perfect baked potato, veggies and all the trimmings. The steak melted in your mouth. It's officially my favorite steak in the world now. But I didn't take pictures because my camera is messed up. But little did I know that they had bought me a camera. It was ordered online and will be here today so I guess you can say that I'm still getting presents. LOL.

The other gift was something that I have wanted for a long time. The sock blank from Knit Picks. They also got me purple and a green Jacquard Acid Yarn dyes. I love those two colors together, it reminds me of Scottish Thistle.

We watched Iron Man, ate cake, (which I will post a picture in the next day or so, when my daughter sends me her pictures) and had just a fun, relaxed day. I will always have special memories of my birthdays with the kids. They make them the best gift of all.

Blessed Be

Happy Birthday! You're still a spring chicken!

I took a class on dyeing sock blanks with Charlene Schurch a couple of years ago. Fun! I loved knitting the socks up. I gave them to a friend and she loves wearing them.

Happy Birthday!!! It sounds like a wonderful birthday to me. Your children are very thoughtful, which is a reflection of you! And they did a great job selecting gifts for you.

Happy Belated Birthday! I just bought the exact same camera last week. Love it!
