They Say It's My Birthday....

I am 53 years old today and I am celebrating by taking Amtrak to New York to visit my daughter. I'm on the way right now and I have a bag of knitting projects sitting next to me that I will work on as soon as I finish this post.


I had birthday cake last night with my husband, youngest daughter, my niece, and a friend from work who is also my knitting buddy. And yesterday, my students showed me some birthday love with an oversized, handmade card.



Good news on the Gracie-cat: she has finally trusted us enough to hang out in the sunroom with us. Such a sweetie.





Our little girl is so brave now!


My lovely, thrifted candle holder, my Valentine's gift from Steve.

Now, I've got some knitting to do!


  1. Happy Birthday!!! Hope you had a wonderful time! Mine is also approaching quickly:-) Another year to celebrate.


    1. Thank you! Happy early birthday to you!

  2. A very belated Happy Birthday, Rose!

  3. Oh, happy birthday! And your cat is very endearing and lovely. She will make this a very companionable year!

  4. Gracie is a love. IM so happy you adopted her
