Or in my case, breakfast of birthdays!
As Gene pointed out if he had put all 52 candles on it it might have looked like the Olympic torch. Funny guy, he went for tall instead. The cake itself, dark chocolate with raspberry. I spent some of the day in sugar shock, the other part stuffed to the gills after a very nice meal in town at Cucina Biazzi. Our favorite place to have dinner. I will be having a lunch fit for a Queen of leftovers today. Indeed!
There were hand made chocolates, cute cards and a couple of IOU's.
I have a new spinning wheel being built in Colorado by Schacht, one of their little Ladybug wheels.
Gene wisely consulted with me after my grumbling that the Timbertops is just too big to be considered portable and asked what would suit. The wheel has been ordered via the Websters and while it's a bit of a wait ( April), I would rather support my local yarn store than do internet shopping for such a big item. They are always so good to me it's an easy thing to do.
I also have another trip back to MA for a true vacation visit planned at the end of April.
Thank you Gene, there is nothing more precious than the gift of time.
So while the b-day itself has passed, it is still birthday week and First Friday art walk is slated along with an Indian food lunch. Counting calories would be a lesson in futility this week. LOL, it's futile just about any week actually.
Thank you all for the birthday wishes yesterday and the equipment suggestions. They were wonderful and helpful respectively. I'm getting close to a decision about equipment and it's already the start of the yearly march towards...53! ;-)
I do have a little spinning to share. Consider it my cheating version of the colors of February.
This lovely green colorway was dyed by Cindie at Eweniquely Ewe ( the pink and browns too for that matter). For the life of me I can't remember the name but that makes it no less pretty.
