Yesterday I completed my 42nd orbit around the sun. My family celebrated the occasion in grand style! My Dh and the girls threw a small birthday party, which included a triple chocolate cake complete with candles (yes, I stuck them on myself, thank you very much!)
They showered me with gifts and well-wishes. I also received birthday greetings from my sister, Jackie, my friend, Marta, and my parents.
The whole family then went to see an early showing of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Overall the movie was good, but I do wonder how the screen writers decide what to cut. And when they do decide to add scenes that are not in the book what message they’re trying to convey. Of course following the book verbatum is impossible. Repercussions from The Burrow scene will need to be addressed early in the next theatrical installment of the last book. Perhaps Fleur and Bill won’t even be part of the movie. How did Harry know to use the bezoar? And what about Draco disarming Dumbledore? Sorry, I shan’t say any more..
We picked up the mail on our way home and discoved a huge box from Cindy. Dear Cindy spoiled me beyond imagination with roving from Dyeabolical Designs, gorgeous laceweight yarn in blues in greens, a Crafty Crocodile storage case and some lovely smelling soap. She also sent candy and journals for each of the girls. Thank you Cindy!
All in all, the day was glorious! I did absolutely nothing responsible. I spinned, knitted, watched movies, ate and generally sat around like a toad. Today it’s back to work. Staying focused will be challenging with all of this recently acquired fibery goodness. Cheers!
