Birthdaygirl got gifts

'cause today is my special day!

Véronik gave me this:


Fleece Artist Merino for a pair of socks. Yummy. The colours are off on this picture, I don't really know why.

This is more like it:


She really knows what colours I like, there are all shades of oranges and blue, turquoise and teal. Some purple, too. It is so pretty and I am going to knit a pair of socks for me, me, me! Thanks again, I love it!!

My friend Nicole in Germany thought of my birthday, too. There's going to be some spending at this place, I just haven't decided what to get yet.

My husband gave me a CD because giving CDs on our special days is becoming a tradition in this marriage. I love it because I am too cheap to buy them myself - which is too funny since spending (much more) money for yarn is done within the blink of an eye. I also was given the opportunity (in form of a "I wanted to make you a gift certificate but you asked me to iron your blouse this morning instead" - I did, so no complaining from my side, I just wonder why he didn't make it yesterday?) to get my hands on the cherished Baby Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere mixture found at Svetlana's. Am I not a lucky girl, uh, woman?

I know my Mom sent a package. What I don't know is why it hasn't arrived yet. She never tells me what she sends so I can't wait to get it.

You can bet that in lieu of knitting progress I will keep you posted about what I got - with pictures.

Happy Birthday, Mona...I didn't even know it was your birthday, otherwise I would have been a little more dramatic than posting a comment on your blog. Geesh :-} Niiiiiice sock yarn...

Oh, damn. I'm anonymous. That was me, Lee Ann, saying happy birthday and apparently having an identity crisis at the same time...

Happy (day after your) Birthday, Mona!

I'd have posted this sooner, but I've been fighting off migraines since...last month (right after I got over the colds, etc.) Hence, my online time is cut short when I'm busy being sick.

On a happier note, I'm glad your special day was happy, and you made out like a bandit in the gift department!

P.S. Brace yourself for "The Return of Deawn" April 22. I have my ticket, and passport(s) at the ready, and can't wait to escape this agricultural hell-hole...
