Birthday Bash

It was my birthday this past Sunday, and I was the lucky recipient of love from family and friends along with tasty meals and gifts. I can't quite decide which gift is my favourite, surprisingly no knitting tools or fibery gifts were involved, but that's okay. I can live without knitting, really,...okay, maybe not, but it's still okay. My new Garmin Forerunner 405 keeps me in check with my running pace whenever I train (4x per week), and then my other gifts are pure enjoyment, not that running isn't enjoyable, sometimes it hurts, or it rains, or there's a hill. :)

I know I promised to show you my latest knitting projects, they are coming along. I've been working on 3 sweaters altogether, one from Vogue, one from Interweave Knits (Michelle Rose Orne's Autumn Asters) and my own creation which I plan to call White Water Rapids. Plus, I've added a new sock design to the mix too, and I haven't figured out yet what to call it. With so many projects on the go, I haven't had time to scan anything and will make up for that in the next few days. A blog without pics is just way too boring and I don't want you to fall asleep.

So, here are some more pics of the birthday goodies. I am a huge Tomb Raider fan and the following games have been added to my collection, as well as a new Seafood book for my cook book collection and a boxed set of Extras for my dvd collection. I suppose I have a lot of collections, at least they keep me busy and out of trouble.

Hurray for new toys! It is so good to hear you sounding happy these days. Glad you had a fun b-day and I'm wishing a great year for you, too. Also, how wonderful that you have all these knitting projects to enjoy, too!

I was playing Tomb Raider this weekend and thinking of you! Now I know why! I am definitely going to get TR Anniversary for my Mac.

Happy Birthday a little late. :-)
