It's my Birthday today

Today is my 52nd birthday, & I'm spending it at home alone! No, don't feel bad for me, it's a treat! Auntie E went to day care & Warren went to his usual Wednesday lunch with his pals. He asked me to come, but I really wanted to stay home & enjoy the peace & quiet, & it's warm & sunny, so I took this crazyclock project out, that I started over a year ago, & did some hand work, sitting out on the deck. It probably wasn't good for my skin, but it was wonderful for my soul!
This card came from my friend Kathy in Michigan, to wish me a happy birthday, & the picture below, I hiked out to the end of the driveway & snapped this picture of Flat Top Mountain, one of the most frequently climbed peaks in Alaska. I prefer this view of it, not being fond of standing on loose shale at high altitudes!
It looks like the Books win the vote so far. I guess I'd better get busy!!!
& if you want a good laugh READ THIS!

Hope ya had a great birthday. I enjoyed the story, sounded like something straight out of Monty Python.

And four dinners's replies are a hoot, too. What a wit!

Happy birthday,a few days late--we are now the same age =-)! I LOVE being alone on my birthday! At least for a good prtion of the day. It has gotten to be a tradition in our house. I make some tea, put on some music, get out a book or sit at my machine and play all day!
