Crikey Peeps! I am completely an exact week behind in blogging once again. I use this blog as a diary of my life...it was the whole point of my blogging..I quit developing pictures a few years ago. The blog was my solution to not printing pictures and scrapbooking. I've been writing this post for a few days now...not that it's a great post, I've just been busy. And it seems the newer blog format and the newer computer take me way longer to do anything.
So here we go, I'm on my birthday week, which was exactly one week ago today on Sunday.
And I am 55 now.
So, After lunch and such on Thursday, Vickie and I spent the afternoon at Groovy Girl Yarn.
Some of the girls there gave me a gift certificate for my birthday!
On Friday evening several of our family members went to Cool Creek Park to hear Endless Summer Band. You might remember this band from a private party we went to last July.
This be the princcess of the family, my Sister.
Vickie made these yummy chocolate covered strawberries....
and Mom and Dad brought J. Edwards cupcakes, which are the most delicious ever, but I didn't get a picture.
And during the Happy Birthday motions I got another gift card to Groovy Girl Yarn and some cash...so what's a girl to do, but go to the yarn store on Saturday and try to figure out what to do with those gift cards!
I needed consultation! I wanted to buy yarn for something special. We came up with the idea to make an afghan for the camper. But I don't know what colors the camper is going to be....
I had color combos going on all over the place.
Lots of brights or blues in hues...
Groovy girl had me close my eyes....and she laid this out. The gray adds a bit of a sweatshirt feel to the afghan.
I love it!
On my actual birthday, last Sunday, it rained....all day long. So I decided to get out a craft I've been wanting to play with for a long time. I bought this noodle making machine at a garage sale for $5.00. I decided to use it on polymer clay. I actually have a noodle maker, to make noodles, that I've never used!
I rolled out the clay,
I used a straw to make perfect little circles,
And I made these. You might remember me trying this a year or two ago, but they were a lot fatter. I wanted to try it again. So my rainy day birthday was the day.
I think I will end here....and tell you about this past week, in a day or two.
PS - Ok thanks Fiona for the info about Google Reader. I do use it. It's how I always read all of your blogs on my phone. I didn't download it or configure it to begin with, and I don't know how to change it over. I tried changing it to Feedly, but it didn't work. My solution, I used to only list blogs on my sidebar of people who actually commented on my blog, or I had contact with. Now I've had to mix them up. Oh well...it's the life of a non-teck-savvy person.
