My birthday is on Monday. I will be 34. Although 34 seems old to me, like the mid-30s are here and I'm beginning to find gray hairs, I think I'm in a pretty good spot right now. I'm really thankful for my two smart, funny and interesting children and for Charlie, my best friend and companion. And I am really happy knowing that I have this book to work on during my 34th year. I love a big project.
We are going to Oleana tonight to celebrate. And my sister just sent me an amazing package of goodies, including this cookbook. And from my in-laws I'm getting a most awesome gift – a new iron. A really good, professional grade iron. I don't iron clothes so don't get any ideas. This is for the craft room only.
My editor and I went over the very detailed shot list yesterday and I think I'm almost ready to mail out the big package of supplies and pre-made bird parts. I want to be sure everything arrives in Colorado by next Wednesday. The photo shoot is on Thursday and Friday. I still have some wings to sew and a few patterns to redraw so that everything will look fresh in the photos. I'm a bit stressed right now, wanting to be sure I remember to bring everything. And I'm going to miss my girls while I'm away. Three nights away. But daddy will be here taking good care of everyone.
