Why yes, yes it is.
My birthday tends to be iffy in enjoyment (getting rear-ended, attending a funeral, being sick, ad naseum), but I’m happy to report that this year had enough happy to offset anything else.
Through a lucky coincidence, I managed a four-day weekend by virtue of a dentist appointment and my birthday landing smack-dab on Easter. Or Easter landing on it. Whichever.
Thursday, Ramblin and I headed southwest to our friendly not-in-the-neighborhood dental team. We have the best hygienist and dentist around. Jenny from the Blog frequents them as well. Then after a quick stock-up trek, we headed to my mom’s for lunch and to color eggs.
Friday, after Ramblin was set free from work, and a quick post-work nap, he christened the Lawn Mowing Season and grilled out (we’re up to four times this year already – yay!) some lovely sirloin and New York strip. We also made our first trek of the season to the Dairy Dee. Later that evening, we movie-theater-phobes finally got to watch Sherlock Holmes on our pay-per-view.
Saturday found us at odds and ends, until a chance wandering into the junk/fiber/yarn room to search for a kitchen scale inspired a streak of spring cleaning. You can now see the floor. It’s quite exciting.
Today, we packed up and headed to my mom’s for birthday/Easter dinner. I was an instant non-winner on several scratch-off tickets, a winner of a few free tickets, but I must show you the presents. Ramblin would only tell me that my gift came from Amazon (which limits it to a three wolf t-shirt or a bunsen burner, or anything in between).
Yep, this electronic gadget- and camera-poor household has a new addition. I had been wanting a smaller camera that would tuck into my purse for everyday use.
This should do the trick.
Ramblin also had a hand in the present from my mom.
Presents also include money for The Fiber Event, and a gift certificate to The Loopy Ewe. It’s been a very fibery birthday.
Many thanks to all the well wishes and thoughtful gestures.
And tomorrow, back to reality. :P
