Happy Birthday (to me)!

Once upon a time, many years ago, on this day, a woman was driven to the hospital, through a blizzard, to have a planned C-section. At 12:47pm she gave birth to a little baby girl with a head full of black hair. (The picture obviously taken much later, but it seems to be the only one I can find readily.)

Happy Birthday to me.

Saturday, I received an unexpected birthday gift.

Carma sent me a Sheepy mug! Thanks, Sweets!

Yesterday we put the truck in four wheel drive and Nate dropped me off for Katie's baby shower. Actually, the roads are fine, but our drive is still a mess. We had attempted to dig ourselves out, only for the wind to blow most of the snow right back from whence it came.

The shower was a big success. There was something like fifty people there, and I think the Mom and Dad to be are set when it comes to filling their nursery. Mom-to be Loved the mary jane shoes and baby cardigan. WE had also bought a lot of toys and other useful things as decorations for the to take home afterwards. I have no idea how many carloads it took them to get everything home.

I've finished my wrap, but it still needs buttons. AS soon as I find some I will post a picture. Otherwise Is doesn't look like much of anything. Other than that, I have no other knitting news. I'm trying to decide what I'd like to do next. I have a list of things I should do, but I have not decided what I will do.

I want to thank Miriam, for her wonderful advice in making a bookweight so I can read and knit at the same time. The only other suggestion I got, was from my husband. He said I should just hold the book in my "monkey toes". (Thanks, dear.)
