Another very dear friend sent me this absolutely gorgeous tin spice set which fits perfectly just above the stove. Birthdays bring home to me how truly blessed I am and it has absolutely nothing to do with the gifts.
A special part of my day is a phone call from Betty. She isn't related and we rarely see each other during the year but she never fails to ring and wish me Happy Birthday just because I share the same birth day with her late husband. She turned 90 this year and still lives independently, still drives and doesn't seem a day over 80.
There were lots of other gifts, the one from my husband will be in a later post as I have to set it up in the garden, phone calls and visitors. Two of my sons cooked dinner AND cleaned up . A very very nice day.
Today I went over to where I used to work and bought heaps of seedlings, a couple of azaleas, a jasmine and some other bits and pieces for the garden. They only get plants in a couple of times a year at really good prices but you have to get in early to get a good selection. No time to plant them today as I have to list on my website then put a quilt together ready to hand Quilt. It is for a lady in town who can put a quilt top together but hasn't a clue how to Quilt them so I said I would do it for her. It's only a Cot Quilt so won't take to long I hope.
But then it is a beautiful day outside, perfect for playing in the garden...................................................
