Anniversaries and birthdays

Did you know that I have been an irregular blogger for the last 2 years? It is true. 2 years plus 1 week…and I had a birthday…and today is my 8th wedding anniversary! Wow! Lots to celebrate!

My fabulous assistant, Jessica, has made these most delicious cupcakes to celebrate my 3 ½ decades on the planet. I hear there are more treats planned for later in the week by the other lovely assistant, Katherine. After eating 3 of these yummies today I really do not need anything other sweets….of course, that is saying like I do not need any more yarn or fabric…such a silly concept.

For my birthday/anniversary present, I received a lovely gift from Fritz and Max.

THEY ARE NOT HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is Tuesday night and I have not seen them since Saturday. Can you believe it? It wasn’t so bad on Sunday and Monday since I was in Delaware checking out my mom’s new digs:

Some love shots of the garden.

The lovely Mamie.
And neighboring gardens.

Last night was awful though – I was home all alone and really missed Max – first time we have been apart since he was born….both fantastic and depressing. I mean, how can you not miss this face?

so cute sweeping

In other news, the personal/work life has been incredibly stressful, so when I get home, I have almost no interest in the knitting or crocheting or even sewing. Our next show THE NEVERENDING STORY is absolutely overwhelming for us at the moment. There are many many many costumes and not enough time to make it all happen – and not enough staff. We have been working hard on this show for way too long – it is truly the never-ending show.

Outside of the crazy number of costumes, the costume shop is also responsible for dyeing the ‘nothing’ fabric.
Here it is in stages:

Wow - good to see your mom - she looks great! Tell her I said hi!
Merry birthday
Merry anniversary
Merry cute kid!
Want to feel old? We were having a conversation at work about Animal House, and the new apprentice said he'd never seen it. I asked him when he graduated high school and he said 2007. Then it hit me: I'M OLD ENOUGH TO BE THIS KID'S FATHER. Not a kid, really, but a young man - a high school graduate, for Christ's sake. And the kid has never seen Animal House. What the hell has the world come to?

Anyway, happy birthday, old friend

Max looks like he is doing well. Elizabeth is not yet walking but making tentative steps.

I love those peonies too.

Also wanted to drop by and let you know that I have a free Elizabeth Zimmerman book on offer. Come visit me and see.
