Well, Mountain Man aka Pa Kettle aka The Cougar is on the right track. While filling in the gaping holes in the driveway (and I use that term VERY loosely) up to the windy ridge, he dug up a very old, hand forged crow bar. (Luckily there wasn't a tired old farmer skeleton still attached to the handle.) Well, bit of a grind and a brush, bit of pink paint, and voila! Could there be a more perfect present? And I was just musing where I might find me an old crow bar since Pa Duck Herder took his back...... YAY. Thank you Mr Cougar.
And look - Lesley gave me a whole box of vacola jars. THANK YOU. And she didn't even know it was my birthday.
So I gave her these little mittens I just finished.
I have had a lovely birthday week. My beloved bought me the most beautiful necklace in the WHOLE WORLD. I feel like a QUEEN when I wear it. And a cool book which I devoured in bed yesterday and today, and a cool metal stand for my earings which is VERY practical.
Most of all I have cherished having endless cups of tea with sisters, dear friends and reconnecting with beautiful folks I haven't been in contract with enough of late.
And just to top it off, the week as ended with RAIN. Now that is a nice present.
So what did I do on my birthday? Well, I was in bed by 7:00pm with a cup of tea! I am not sure if that is sad or not, but honestly, it was EXACTLY where I wanted to be.
Happy Birthday to ME.
