I missed my blogaversary!

...with good reason! I was overwhelmed with the gift of family for my birthday! My sister Janet drove down Monday night, and we sat up 'til midnight talking. Janet took me out to breakfast yesterday morning, and then helped me set up my new refrigerator, and clean up the old one. Thank you, Janet! (Thank goodness there's one person in the family who gets pleasure out of cleaning! By the way, that's not me!)

Andrea, Jake, Lily, and Ella are visiting from Minnesota. Alison, Eva, and Aidan came down for the day (poor Dan had to work). Carol fixed a fabulous Italian feast for dinner. Dave surprised me with a luscious strawberry filled birthday cake, decorated with blue roses... blue is my favorite color, and roses are my favorite flower. Joanne couldn't be here, but she did call and sing me the birthday dirge, which my sister Janet taught us years ago... you probably don't want to know that one! ; )

So, that's why I missed my blogaversary. I can't believe I've been blogging for two years! I've met some wonderful people through this blog, and the urge to post has kept me tatting. I guess I'll just have to see if I can keep it going for another two years!


  1. WOW! That was so nice of your family to gather 'round to celebrate your blogoversary with you! Err...I mean...birthday...Celebrate your birthday with you!
