A Beautiful Birthday

Good morning,

A few days ago I celebrated another birthday.  They keep coming, but they are better than the alternative!

Seriously, my wonderful family certainly let me know I am loved.  The pretty flowers above are from My Honey...
...then we had a lovely prime rib dinner at a favorite restaurant.  I didn't get pictures of the crab cake, soup, and salad, but we had those, too.  I ordered the small serving of prime rib and still had more than I needed to eat.
And, this is my birthday present!  It's a new Brother sewing machine that does all sorts of wonderful things.  I also have the software package so I can design my own embroidery patterns.  The sewing machine is the crowning addition to my newly redesigned craft room.

My Honey is such a sweetie.  Thank you for a wonderful birthday celebration.

This image above was taken recently when everything was still green outside.  As I type this, there is plenty of snow on the ground.  Welcome to changeable Cincinnati weather!

All the best,
Lois
