So many birthdays!

"I know I was writing stories when I was five. I don't know what I did before that . . . just loafed, I suppose."

"Can't I open a present a day early??"

"I can't believe you made socks for me!!!"
DaHubby, born 10/07/??

Yes, I did make socks and I finished them in time for his birthday, and I had successfully kept them a total secret! Take that, Second Sock Syndrome!

In honor of two out of the 3 birthdays celebrated in this blog post, we have spent the last week hiking and observing trees, birds, animals and books. How, you ask, does one hike and observe books?
At the
Carl Sandburg Home
, naturally! It made my day when SuperCraftyDancerGirl told me she was jealous of all the books in that place---I think they said there are 20,000 or so of them. And to think, she's only 10. I suspect that we have another book addict on our hands.

So we hiked...in Flat Rock, at King's Mountain, and then later in the week at the zoo. Photos to come...but until then, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my men! And to Plum, too! That'll be all, Jeeves.

I was just browsing the links. They look like interesting places to visit.

I didn't know you taught knitting to kids. Neat. When I need more needles maybe I'll try the bamboo ones since you like them. I bought my Brittany needles while visiting family in Arizona and have no idea where to get them around here anyway. But I have seen the bamboo needles here.

I'm glad Second Sock Syndrome didn't overtake you. ;)

Thanks for the birthday wishes! You gave me a great surprise with the socks which are awesome. When it cools off you may have to wash them at night while I am sleeping since they are so warm and cozy.
