…(or so I have been told) a special day.  It is my birthday :o)

I generally don’t go around shouting that its my birthday but since everyplace under the sun (or so it seems) has a discount on days such as this one I’ve been a little more vocal lately :o)  Also, Abi said it first ;o)  I don’t know how she managed to get candles in mohair like that – I would have set the yarn, myself and quite possibly my yard and house on fire.

I woke up to find this in my kitchen:

:o)  This is remarkable because #1 he got the right color (well…there is never really a *wrong* color when it comes to roses, but I’ve been on a pink bender lately) #2 he works about 80 hours a week on job sites all over New England so getting to a store to get a gift is challenging, to say the least #3 as said above I don’t go around telling everybody my b-day is coming up so he remembered this all on his own :o))  (he also remembers our anniversary without prompting)  They smell like raspberries, too *yum* and the card has promised me a shopping trip to Saratoga, NY on Monday :o))  LOVE this man!!

Today will be filled with knitting, sushi, a pedicure and whatever else I freakin’ feel like doing!!

    hey jess, one of my other mommies, i had no idea you had this nifty little webpage. (it must have slipped heathers mind). its awesome tht you knit so many things..but i think the killer about this page is the hilarious stories you have on here. i mean, the things that have happened to you jeep are probably not that funny, but the way you tell them certainly makes them that way. it just shows you definitely have a sense of humor during bad times, just if your there when the event happens, it seems like your going to kill the world. i love the pictures of the marching and heathers lip..lol. and i think what roger did for you today was so cute. he was obviously a really awesome guy. i hope you have fun today and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! i know ill see you soon…

  • Abi says:

    Happy Birthday Jess! I know I wished you a good day on my blog but I am slow to do it here. Yes those are real flaming candles in mohair…I like you that much. ;-) My neighbors offically think I am certifiable for making a cake out of yarn and lighting it on fire. They didn’t ask why, they just watched out of their windows…I saw them.
