55 & Still ALIVE!

It was my 55th birthday today. I spent most of it hand finishing a quilt for a client. (I'll post it tomorrow). My DGFs Ilene & Mindy both called to wish me happy BD.
My DH spoiled me rotten, as usual. I love brown paper packages. They always make me want to sing!
This was the first thing I opened. I wasn't sure what it was at first. It's my own personal library. Like something out of Star Trek! I've already loaded the "Twilight" series into it. Another series I told him I would want to put into it is Madeline L'Engle's "Wrinkle in Time" series.
This was the next package I opened. I've read these books about every 10 years of my life.
One new summer outfit from Coldwater Creek.
& I love these shoes he got for me from REI.
Broc enjoyed the wrapping paper ,
boxes,
& ribbon.

It was a lovely day.

Happy birthday! You will LOVE your kindle. I adore it, and it fits in my purse. You might need to make a cool new bag to house it though.
again, Kindle is the Bomb!!!!!
