birthday time again! February 9, 2009

Filed under: catch-up,knitting,news,recap — Ren @ 3:29 pm

today is my 22nd birthday! i had a nice, small birthday dinner on saturday when i was at home. corned beef & corn souffle (and vegetables i didn’t eat) and then cake & ice cream. yummy! we played some scattergories and had a generally good time. ^^ one of my favorite presents was a set of pearl earrings from my parents. i picked them out and i think they are just fabulous:

other than that, things have been really uneventful here. i haven’t posted in a month because i’ve had nothing at all to say. there hasn’t been any interesting knitting or crafting being done. the sum total of my knitting over january was sixteen blanket squares for the ghana project. super easy and i used up my acrylic stash.

i’m now working on a pair of socks and i’m about to kitchener the first one, so perhaps i’ll have a pair sometime soon. i tried to start a few toys, but got really frustrated and quit before i got very far. i think that’s one reason why i worked on super-easy squares for a while. i’ve had some trouble with my wrist again, so i’ve been trying to take it easy for that reason, too. i hope that everyone has a great week!!! ^^

    Happy birthday! I can never seem to remember when your birthday is. It’s three days after my oldest niece, I need to remember that somehow.

    I had a feeling it was in February, though! So the CD doubles as a birthday present! Whoo hoo! See how thoughtful I was. ;-)

    Enjoy being old for the next three months. Then I turn 22, and I refuse to be called old. So you will revert to being young. :-)
