As you may well know, Tuesday was my birthday, 24th to be exact. According to my mother back in 1984 she went into labor on a Sunday and I was born Monday morning around 7:34 or so. I trust her, I think she was there and would know. *grin*
So the big present, other than money from the 'rent (parents), DH bought me (us) a camera!
It is the neatest thing. It makes him happy, because there are a lot of various specs and modes and it does technical things. *grin* He understands them and loves them, and it's simple for me to use in AUTO mode. *wink* I've already run around and taken various pictures of the house, my Quilting Den, cats, and nieces. Now, I just need to take a good nature walk with it... make a few quilt blocks and now I'll have proof that I really am a quilter!
The camera is completely awesome and I am definitely in love with it. But! That is not the neatest most nifty thing I got in blog world, no... that would be my gift from Lindsey of A Kindred Spirit's Thoughts.
I get back on the computer this morning, after having a relaxing day and habachi sushi dinner with my DH last night and what do I find while combing through my google reader feeds, but that I have been selected for a blog award! This is my first! And what a great birthday gift!! So excited!!! (Can you tell?) Lindsey has presented me with the I Love Your Blog award, I have wanted one of these since I first saw it, and was curious if ever one day it might happen to me, and on my birthday of all days! How cool!!!
(and I put mine in my side bar to rant and rave about it *grin*)
So here's who I'm passing it forward to:
1. Deena at A Peek at My Bookshelf
2. Melissa at Bibliophile's Retreat
3. Ruth at Bookish Ruth
4. Ana, Kailana, Marg, and Teddy at Historical Tapestry
5. Nancy Rue at 'Tween You and Me
6. Susan Meissner at The Shape of Mercy blog (a continuation of letters between from the characters of her fabulous book)
7. Rel at RelzReviewz
These are just a few of the blogs that keep my google reader full and my eyes open late hours into the night reading more of them and yearning for more books and such. *grin*
Now, without further adieu, it is beyond my bedtime, and DH needs me! Goodnight!
