Today is my 36th birthday. Roxanne and Stella marched down the stairs this morning holding a homemade banner atop two wooden skewers (They originally taped the skewers on upside down and I was called in yesterday to fix it without looking, which I managed to do. Also yestereday there was a dress rehearsal in which the banner was held up and they came dramatically down the stairs singing happy birthday, so I got a little preveiw of today's festivities).
I plan to spend the day sewing and Charlie is taking me out to Oleana for dinner. The weather is amazing today. This morning I opened a gift of two bottles of real marachino cherries – my dream come true. I seriously love maraschino cherries and I can polish off a whole jar of the bright red ones from the grocery store in an hour or so, but the real ones…they're amazing. And I think a package containing a video camera may be on its way here. Very exciting! I would like to make some video tutorials about making softies and now I'll be able to. Hooray!
It's a good day.
