Sunday was my birthday, and it was so much fun! Friday, Mr. Plain walked in the door with a really pretty birthday package. The package tormented me all the way until Sunday morning when I got to open it in bed. It was carried to me by some very cute porters.
They also brought me a package they had gone out to shop for the day before and had wrapped themselves.
It turned out to be gardening tools in my favorite color.
They did note, however, that the sprinkler was not for me. It was for them to run through. Fair enough.
And the card Mike made was fantastic!
Each family member is drawn in their favorite color. I am in the top left and I’m the “saver”. Daddy is in blue and he’s the “bad guy”. Robbie, in orange, is a spider with a big web. Chip, drawn in the only color he knows, is also a spider. Mike, in red, is on the bottom right. The spider web in the middle figures into the whole scheme in a way I can’t quite understand… Hey, at least I get to be the saver!
In the big, heavy boxes was the greatest gift I’ve gotten in a long time… BOOKS! Mr. Plain was tired of me complaining all the time that I have nothing to read. I read fairly fast, and especially if I have a book I really love. So he gets to hear this a lot.
So over many lunch hours he went to all the local book shops and found an amazing assortment for me. I have my reading needs covered for a while!
Then I decided that I needed to share my reading list with y’all, so check out the sidebar. Yeah, and they’re amazon associates links, deal ;) These are all books I like and recommend. Let me know what you think!
More later about my birthday evening. Hint: we were out on the town and had to call 911 about a baby-daddy… Oooh!
