Birthday Spoils...


Or should it be Spoiled Birthday?

Because that's what it is...really.

It just occurred to me yesterday as I was receiving many birthday wishes and presents how lucky I am. I am surrounded with the most thoughtful of people...

Friends and family, people I've know forever, or met through the blogosphere quite recently, and so many people that are both near and far found a way to reach out and make me feel so loved. Thank you so much...every last one of you!

And the crazy thing is...it's not quite over yet...as Ms. Megan and Matthew are having a party for me this weekend as well.

My birthday started on Tuesday night. Rich was quite excited (and had been for about a week) about giving me my birthday present. I don't usually ever open presents early, unless there's a good reason (my father sent mine early and it's been sitting wrapped and ready since before Easter) But, Rich's excited tone finally convinced me that I should jet over to the Airstream (plus he said I would be very happy if I did) Well...Boy am I happy that I went over there! (I usually am though...gift or no gift...I'm smitten with the boy) When I got there, he said, "just a minuuuute!" and came to the door with a battery charger...he quickly lifted up the couch pillows (because apparently he wraps quite badly...but pillows are just as good aren't they? I mean, very Eco conscious cause' when you're done with them, you just put them back on the couch) And what was underneath all nestled among the cushions? (I was jumping up and down at this one clapping my hands and giving lots of smooches...well, inside I was...I was mostly speechless and jumpy around on the outside...I know...hard to believe isn't it?!) Let's just say that the pictures around these parts will be improving immensely in the days to come (well...when I learn how to focus and shoot better...don't look too closely at that pupcake picture..oh, and keep the auto flash from firing as well...ugh!) And, there is also a new digital touch photo frame that will be gracing the halls of Foolsewoode as well...to display all my wonderful photos as well...I feel like a very legitimate photo taker now (although still a little confused with the new buttons and beeps) ...happy happy happy me!

I went over to my
mother's yesterday and celebrated with her, GG, and Rozz...we had loads of good foods, and I had just acquired a mini pupcake tin. Well, my mother ran with the idea of mini pupcakes (I wanted vanilla with vanilla icing...boring, I know, but I like pupcakes boring apparently) She decorated some as a reverse red and white mushrooms (you know? White with red dots as opposed to the other way around?) taking care of that pesky Red Hot obsession I've been having lately (not that she knew about that, but we're just connected that way) They were good. Which was also good as she made fifty (that's right 50) before she got fed up and threw the rest of the batter away. Damn. Usually you're scraping the side of the bowl to make sure there's enough batter to make a good cake...

I received a copy
of the book The Creative Family (which I all of a sudden decided to covet when I saw my mother's copy) plus 2 books with illustrations by Lois Lenski (one of my favorite illustrators) an extremely early edition of Romeo and Juliet with amazing illustrations, the book Green Chic, a new watch, a Sephora gift certificate, a new yoga top, a hand crochet book mark (from Rozz) my annual "make me break down and sob" touching card from my mother and wonderful bits and pieces gifts...and something that will help me buy a new camera strap and new camera bag (for my new baby mentioned above)

It was an amazing day for sure...Thank you again to everyone who was so sweet and sought me out...I am, as always very humbled...

Oh...and Very Happy as well! (if not just a teeny bit older too...)

Happy Birthday Sadira!

So now tell us more about your new camera!

I'm trying to decide between Nikon and Canon for my next camera.

Please ask Rich why Canon images seem more robust in color and contrast versus the subtle, perhaps more "natural" color tones of Nikon images.

I'm totally stealing the "eco-wrapping" notion!
