WOW!! Do I rate or what?

56th Birthday....It was Awesome to say the least!!
It all started a few days ago with the arrival of this box of Vosges http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/ "exotic truffles from Jennyrose...She knows how much I love chocolate truffles...well, chocolate of any kind ;). These are beyond decadent!!

Having NO expectations...really...I greeted the day with a phone call from my great friend Lisa Souza. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Have you gotten the box yet?"....No, but the PO is on the to do list, I will let you know if it arrives....today. "It's a giant box".....now this peaks my interest...but knowing that a surprize is coming was enough, at that moment for me.

Michael gives me a big kiss and tells me HAPPY BIRTHDAY and hands me a container of our favorite ice cream....ie. Ben & Jerry's "Phish Food"....now I ask you, what's NOT to love here? He had made a fire, turned on the computer and fed the cats!!
WOW
, what a man!

At 9:30 my incredible friend Nancy M called....sings Happy Birthday and gifts me with my yearly Tarot reading. It was great.....staying balanced is my assignment....and ENJOYING Life....yah, I can work on that!!

So, the day goes on...orders come in...orders go out!!....Yippee!!
I get HAPPY BIRTHDAY greetings through both emails and friends on Fiber Traditions....
I am thinking to myself, it just keeps getting better and better.....
I'm knitting and drinking coffee, eating Phish Food and chocolates....
I AM HAPPY ;)

I get a call from my Friend/Sister Karen....She sings Happy Birthday to me! She's a professional singer amongst many other talents......
"Has your birthday package arrived yet?" We will check at the PO on the way into Eugene to have dinner!!

ALL THINGS COME TO SHE WHO WAITS ;)

Kate calls and invites us over for a visit after we have dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant in Eugene.....Beppe & Gianni's.....YES! We would love to.....


Time to leave for dinner and to run by the PO.....we get there, Michael says he'll go in.....I swear he looked like Santa coming out.....he was loaded with packages...mostly for ME ;)

I tear open the small packages....waiting until we get home to see what's in the mystery package from Lisa........

Inside the present from Karen was this beautiful bracelet that she made. It fits me perfectly and is a Pleasure to wear!! I, ofcourse, put it on immediately!

We had a marvelous dinner!!
Michael and I talked and ate and enjoyed our time together...not doing anything but being He and I!!

The visit with Kate and her beau Tim was short and sweet!! Birthday HUGS!! AHH!!

The drive home......and THEN......the Big Box came into the house.....What could it be?
Well, my friends......HERE IT IS!! Can you believe it? I can't......
WOW...WOW....WOW!!

As I said to Lisa this morning....... I bow to you OH consumate gift giver!!
The ultimate gift!! An Ashford electric spinning wheel ;)

What a day......Like I said, HOW DO I RATE!!!

Thanks to all of you that made my 56th such an amazing birthday....and thanks to all of you who make my life such a joy to be participating in......WOW! I am blessed ;)

How's the spinner? What an awesome surprise! Did she use hand-dyed fiber for the packaging? I am glad you had such a lovely day!
