Happy Birthday to me!!! I actually love my birthday. Gotta love a day that is 'all about me'! ~grin~ Every year, me Mum reminds me of the year - I was a young child - when I became very upset because my Dad had to work on my birthday! Actually, I always thought that, but it seems that one year I made a particularly big fuss about it. That makes me smile. Because, of course, everyone should be available to help me celebrate MY day, don't you think?
What am I doing to celebrate my special day? Well, for one thing, my son, Paul, along with his wife, Rachel, will be stopping by. They picked up a tv that I bought and will be delivering it. (I am so excited about this...but more on that at a later time). We will have some time together and then will go out to eat for lunch.
For those of you who are wondering, I will be 61 years old at 12:12 today. And, not a minute before! ~grin~ One year closer to retirement is the way I see it.
So, I had written all of the above this a.m. and, for some reason, my laptop shut down. It's now almost 10:00 p.m. and I am just getting back to it.
I had a great day. Paul and Rachel came...as planned. Paul got my tv and blu-ray player set up and then we went to Outback for a birthday luncheon. Very nice waiter and great meal!
I had one of these...
we shared one of these...
served by our waiter, Ben.
I didn't take a photo of our dinner...too hungry or something, perhaps.
Here is a great shot of Paul and Rachel...
We had a great time.
It has been a great day. YAY!
On to the exciting part of this post...the Giveaway!
I made this little mat before Christmas and did nothing with it. I thought it might make someone a nice little gift. The fabric is Jovial by basicgrey for Moda and the mat measures about 13 1/2 inches square. I quilted it with little loopy-loops.
No tricks or hoops to jump through...just leave a few nice words for me. I will use the Random Number Generator at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 20 and will email the winner. Please ensure that I have your email address...either through your profile or left in the comment.
Good luck to all of you!
