Things That Make Me Happy on My Birthday...

the feeling of satisfaction:



having finished some items for the shop just in time for Valentine's....

and

overnight snow that renders the washing line a frozen artery across the yard:

bringing with it the anticipation of some good exercise...

and

at this moment wearing the birthday necklace that Safiya made for me, in whispers last night in the living room with Mr. S. while I worked in the basement:


and

calls from my dear friend Tim and my grandparents, singing me their versions of "Happy Birthday" (one in French, the other in two-part harmony).....

bodes well for a birthday day, don't you think? :-)

I've so enjoyed looking through your blog and have loved hearing about the books that you read with your children.
