Happy Birthday to Me!

Yes, it's my birthday. Because I'm an impatient person, it's not all that exiting. Why? Because I talked my wonderful husband into letting me get my wheel a couple of months early. (My mom also helped; Thank you!) I have a nice dinner to look forward to tomorrow night sans kids. (Harry Potter will have to wait a couple of weeks.) Tonight, I plan to watch Pirates of the Caribean yet again. Since it is my birthday, I doubt my husband will make too many snide comments:)

I now have a little mad money that will feed my fiber habit. I plan on getting some dyes from Pro Chemical & Dye, probably an order from Knit Picks, and an order of fiber to dye including some merino and BFL (for socks!). I have to decide exactly what I want, so goodies to come.

I also want to say Happy Birthday to my friend Susan who shares the exact same birthday down to the year. We like a lot of the same books, movies, tv shows (X-Files when it was good and Buffy) and we both would have been in Ravenclaw. And our mothers are both Gemini. How's that for weird coincidence? Susan introduced me to both the Harry Potter series (which I had refused to read until then because of all the hype, but she said they were worth it) and the Falco novels (a series about a private detective in Ancient Rome - wonderfully written with great characters. I'm currently re-reading them.) Happy Birthday to me and Susan!

Happy Birthday!

Oh, I'm a huge fan of Roman history, so I'm definitely going to have to check into the Falco books. Thanks!

Happy Birthday! A wheel is a wonderful gift and getting early was even better.

Happy birthday!! I'm a couple days late, sorry about that. It's taking me a while to catch up on blogs. And it's better to get the wheel early so you can use it all day anyway!
