Happy Birthday to me!
Has your week been super crazy? Have you stopped and taken stock of what you've accomplished during that crazy? It may surprise you. At the end of each day I take stock. I check my mental to-do list to be sure I've accomplished everything for the day. I usually have a planning session while I'm in the shower in the morning. When do you do your best planning?
My prize from Emily's stash!It was my birthday on Tuesday, I was 55 shiver. I'm officially out of the most desired demo in the media business. I've not decided if that's good or bad. I'm not sad about it though. This past year has been one of the best of my life on the personal level. My family is healthy and on the average, successful. I have a great group of friends that share my passion for all things fiber. The pooches are well. And I'm still getting up and going to work every day. Life is certainly good! Thank you all for being a part of it.
************On Monday evening I visited Grand Alpaca Co with Paula and the Woodland Weavers and Spinners. The Talbots have a beautiful place with amazing animals. The alpacas all know their names, 150 alpacas, that's a lot of names.
Isn't she beautiful?Tuesday, the big day, included a road trip to Howell, MI to check out The Spinning Loft. We had a nice lunch at Mr. B's Rustic Tavern (thanks again Paula) then made a stop at Sticks and Strings in Lansing (super cute shop and real nice folks) on the way back home. The picture at the top of today's post is the stuff I gave myself for my birthday. I finished up the day hanging out with the GR Yarnies at A Grand Skein's Grand Opening. It was great fun!
Mixed in with all this fun there was some knitting and spinning. I'm on a headband knitting kick, 2 adult and 1 baby-size so far. The first one...
Have you taken stock of what you've accomplished his week? Make a list it'll surprise you. No task is too small to make note of. There could be a prize involved. Winner could be announced next Fiber Arts Friday so you might have til then to tell me about your list-making habits - or lack thereof.
