It's that time again

It's that time of year again where my age changes. Today is my birthday. I'm no longer 50. I'm now in my 50s. Scary. But I'm now one year closer to retirement if that should ever happen. My daughter got me this balloon and she bought a cake for us to eat later. Boston Cream Pie Cake! Can't wait to dig in.

I'm just moving right along on the sock. I got a lot done the other night at knit night with the girls. Such a nice, fun evening! I always enjoy it and no one ever spills hot tea on me. I am now at the part of the sock where I'm going to change colors for the heel, so I decided to start the second sock that way I can do both heels one after the other and watch how much yarn I'm using on the contrast ball.

Joann's had Butterick patterns on sale for 99 cents! So I picked up a couple. I just love the Halloween door hanging. I'm hoping to get started on that one soon.

And I just love buttons! I've picked up some really cute ones lately which were on sale. I don't know what I'll use them on, but I just HAD to have them, even if I just look at them and smile they are worth it. Cats and sheep!

I have nothing special on tap for the big day. I took the day off and so did my daughter. We may go out for dinner, don't know where yet, and we will definitely dig into that cake later! Here is where I wish I was spending my birthday, Houghton Lake, Michigan, my favorite place in the world.
