The Birthday Hull



A few of my dear friends, Kara, Kathy, Carrie,Mindy, and Shannon and hubby got together with my family for celebrating my birthday. We went to Brazie's literally right up the street from my house for dinner. None of us had been there before so we were not sure what the food was like. We were a little surprised at how fancy the place was. Of course we had to make fun of the hostess' tasteless outfit of way to short shorts and high heels. She did not fit the rest of the atmosphere at all. Of course we decided that she would if she had on longer shorts. Of course the poking fun continued when one of the bus boys just happened to go to school with both of my kids. He asked DS what he was doing and , son replied "not much of anything". Lawn Guy made some kind of noise and I thought I should crawl under the table as I looked around at my all to knowing friends and our own rolling of the eyes and giggling. Unfortunately, DS doesn't get life, but hey, he's moving out with is dad sometime next week. We'll see how that goes. Then, we started in on DD job at Mickey D's. Mindy said "your store sucks", and Kara said "the place is hot." All true. DD just agreed and then poked at the crazies she works with.

Dinner was very good. Everyone ate way too much bread and lord knows I thought I was swimming in iced tea I had so much. The highlight of dinner was when they were boxing up our meals and the guy handed my pasta to me in a large go cup. I nearly fell out of my chair laughing. After a short walk home we hung outside and had cake and ice cream. One of the great things about having great friends is knowing no one is a afraid to go looking for something that they need or just pitching in to help divvy out said cake and ice cream.

Do ya think my friends know me or what?!? Did I tell ya I spin. Boy did I get things to play with. So cool! Mindy gave me some hemp to spin and a bar of sandalwood soap. I love the smell of sandalwood. I love the fact that Mindy gave me a plant fiber to play with. I need to do some reading up on that one. Kara found some Targee in with dark blues, purples, and greens. Its funny because I am spinning one of these right now. Not the same color though. Kathy went to visit our friend Sheri at the Loopy Ewe and found some Enchanted Knoll. I have looked at her colors and have been wanting to give it a try too. That's the braid that's not in the bag. Shannon gave me some Northern Lights pencil roving. She said she wants to see what is looks like spun up because its either going to be really cool or awful! I think it will be really cool. It has light and dark blues, green, and bright yellow. The colorway is called Violets. DD got me some jewelry and the cool Betty Boop purse. We both like Betty Boop! Thanks so much to all of you for coming out and hanging with me. Now I have to go spin. Hmmmm, what to play it?
