Yesterday I received a new book that I had ordered from Amazon.com (the above picture is from them, too). A Birthday present to myself. I also have the first of Carol Hopkins' books, Civil War Legacies I, which I enjoyed very much. This one looks wonderful, and I am hoping to make at least a couple of small quilts from it!
Tomorrow is my 65th Birthday. Just another day I suppose, but it seems special to me. Sixty-five years is a milestone. After my husband died, right after my 50th Birthday, I didn't figure I'd have that many more Birthdays, but here I am. Shizuku-chan (our cat), and I celebrate our Birthdays on the same day. She will be 16 tomorrow, and was born in Ei-cho, Japan, when my daughter was living there and teaching English in the local elementary schools. Sixteen is old for a cat, but she gets around pretty good, and her eyes are clear and bright. She and I are just "two old girls". I hope that she and I have a few more years to make a difference. Hope Spring has arrived where you are. It is looking "hopeful" here!
