Old as Dirt



Happy birthday to me. This is a very low-key day. We're having a good dinner though, and as my gift, I am ordering a new cutting table to replace the ping-pong table that has been the center of my work space for years. The good thing about the ping-pong table is that it's large, and the bad thing about the ping-pong table is that it's large, so that I can't move around it to get to my storage space. I will be away next week at my sister's and while I'm gone, I hope the ping-pong table disappears and maybe, the new table will arrive and be set up.

In fabric news, I've started work on the Hoffman Challenge, buying new fabric for it. Every year I vow I won't do that, and every year I break the vow. I'm sure the Hoffman people count on that!

And then, just for sheer cuteness, here's this picture, taken last week when the twins were here. Too bad about the prominent placement of the condiments, but I don't have a way to crop this photo.




Cropped by way of Candace's suggestion. Thanks, Candace.

Well, happy birthday to you! Lots of April babies it seems all of a sudden. My birthday is next week along with that of both my Brothers-in-law.

Hope you have a nice day-you certainly deserve it.

The condiments just add that extra hint of spice to the flavor of the so happy cute photo.

Happy Birthday. I'm so excited you're getting a new table. It wouldn't be that left over piece of marble from the new counter-top install - would it? I just wondered... silly!

Cute pics! Hope you had a very happy birthday!

I'm planning on doing the Hoffman Challenge too, only I've bought a bunch of beads for it, but not the fabric yet.

Happy Birthday! We have twin grandsons who are now almost 17 but your picture brought back memories of when they were that age. So cute. Too bad they grow up so fast. Sigh.

Cute kids. It reminded me of when my twins were little. Ah, good times.

Happy Birthday!!!
Mine is in a few weeks...and will be low key too. I told my boys that all I want is a very mushy, handwritten card from each of them. Ha!

Those twins are so darn cute. I can't wait until my niece's twins arrive....

Happy Birthday! Hope it is as low-key and satisfying as you want!

The twins are adorable.

Happy birthday, Kay. I agree that Dirt is a good age to be! Especially if it means you get to enjoy cute grands like those two. So you're going for the Hoffman challenge again, huh? We must be gluttons for punishment!
