A Party

How was your weekend? Mine was fantastic!

On Friday a basket of flowers was delivered to moi from Sweet Hubby and my daughters.

Then in the afternoon daughter Ruth showed up home from college. When I asked her why, she said it was because it was my birthday. Cool!

Friday evening Hubby and Ruth took me out to dinner to celebrate. We went to the Outback steakhouse. Yum! It was a good meal.

Saturday was the party. Hubby and Ruth put up decorations of black balloons, crepe paper, and a banner that said Over The Hill. Large quantities of family showed up bearing side dishes and gifts. Even though Hub told me there was going to be a party, I didn't really believe it until people started showing up. We had a good time. We barbecued steaks, there was 3 kinds of potatoes, and salad and veggies. My niece, Heidi, made the cutest birthday cake in the shape of a beehive. It was very tasty too. There was much eating, conversation, and laughter. I had a wonderful time.

Sunday we just chilled. I knitted, did a little beading, surfed Ravelry. To be honest, I had to recover from the party. Did just a tad bit too much celebrating.

I am pretty much done with the peaches and grapes baby cardigan. I just need to block it and sew on a button. I'm currently knitting a matching hat to go with it. It's almost done too.

I also got started on a peyote amulet bag. I'm scheduled to teach a class on the subject so I thought I better make a model of the pattern I came up with for it. Students have an easier time understanding the goal of the class if they can see it in real life.

All in all, it was a great weekend.

Have a great day.
