A Happy Birthday

I have had a very nice birthday. Charles keeps telling people to ask how old I am, so I'm forced to say it outloud. Somehow I'd forgotten that having a birthday means I also have to add to my age. Oh, well... I am glad to be alive!

Last night we attended a party at my DIL's parents' house. It was fun. There were a lot of nice people there, and we got to catch up with Steven and Hummingbird. It was great. They seem happy and are settling into adulthood.

Today we went out for lunch with Autumn and Harley. Fun. Autumn talked a lot about her new job and all the new things she is learning. She loves it!

For dinner I attended a little tailgating party at church. We had hot dogs and pot luck stuff, and played a few games. The evening was GORGEOUS for sitting outside and watching the sun set.

I've even had some sewing time. I finished the Ugly Quilt top, and now I like it! Tomorrow I hope to spend more time sewing.

I'm thankful for:

1) all the Happy Birthday wishes I received in email, at Facebook, in person, and in snail mail.
2) catching up with both Autumn and Steven.
3) fun and silly times with Charles.
4) a beautiful evening.
5) the fun of making quilts.
P.S. I turned off the comment moderation, because it was such a pain.

I hope your birthday celebrations were fun. Age is just a number - the important thing is how old you feel.

Again, Happy Birthday. And I don't think your Ugly quilt is ugly. I think it is Bold

Happy Birthday, somehow they don't generate the excitement that they did when we were kids but oh well!
