Birthday things

A birthday package from Barbel arrived filled with sock yarn, sheep things, chocolates, Haribo candies, lotion, leis, and German Weight Watcher food and a magazine (and the German WW foods taste soooo much better than the American products). Penny, Meg, Karen, and my parents called. Helen and Mimi Facebook messaged me birthday wishes, and over the last week I've spent time with some of my favorite people.

It's a wonderful birthday.

I am well and truly fortified to face AARP things in the mail now, should they care to send them. 47 looks like it's going to be a good age this year!

Staci, you are very kind. Thanks for the birthday wishes!

Donna, Barbel is a rare friend who encourages me to do the right thing, and is also realistic! She said the chocolates and Haribo were for my family, but only if they were very good to me. And she knows how much we all love German chocolate!

Thanks, Tracy! Penny's birthday is in November also, and she'll be 48. We're planning another knitting roadtrip for our 50th birthday year - possibly to New Mexico. Maybe we can swing by and see you on the way!
