...and it was good...
After a very nice dinner of coconut-ginger chicken stir-fry and coconut rice there was cake. My niece and Girly helped blow out the candles. We added more so that they could. I don't care about looking older, that's how life works. I tell people that I am old and cranky if they ask or sometimes I tell people that I am not getting older, I am getting fabulous. More for a bit of a laugh than because I am uncomfortable with aging. The thing I look forward to most about getting older is having grandbabies and hopefully being well enough and finacially secure enough to travel a little. Not having a monthly guest wouldn't hurt my feelings either.
The Mr. got me some flowers. I love flowers. Nothing can brighten up a dull room or a dull day quite like them.
My favourite of all of my gifts. My girlfriend made it for me. She's a quilter and it is a little fabric bowl that is reversible.
The reverse side. I like it better with the bright side up and the dark side on my dark table. The tiny gold leaves detail on the dark fabric gives it a bit of sparkle. Love it. Love that it is the black version of the blue fabric I bought for the lining in Girly's Halloween bag.
I'm nearly finished the purple scarf. I just need to cut and add the fringe. Look at the halo on it. It is incredibly soft and warm. I found that funny since it is such an open knit.
I made it 7' long because the person it is for loves long scarves. I still have quite a bit of yarn left over too. After I add the fringe, I'll write up the pattern (so easy) and post it for you.
