View Full Version : The Seventh Decade!

July 17th, 2015, 02:47 AM
Yesterday (Thursday) was my 60th birthday. What a wonderful day - my DH brought flowers to my office in the morning, and then my daughter brought me more when she came to take me out to lunch, and there were still more from my dad's widow when I got home! (I was thinking maybe I should take my pulse, as it was getting to look like a funeral parlor around here.) And my oldest DS drove up from Maryland with his wife & the grands. Tomorrow, I'm taking the day off of work. DIL and I will drop the kiddoes off with their aunties and then go shopping while the menfolk play golf. She is the only other skilled sewist in the family, so we always have a great time. We're planning to hit Hobby Lobby (there isn't one near her home), JoAnn's (so I can get a fmq foot for my machine - I told DH that's what he's giving me :D), and at least one LQS (her mom wants us to check them out for the Row By Row event). Then I'm going to come home and hopefully finish a bridal shower gift before Saturday. May not be getting much sleep, but it's certainly going to be worth it! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Happy Belated Birthday, though it seems like the celebration, fun and family are still in full swing! Had to laugh on the "funeral parlor"......... Too funny! :)

Happy Birthday! In our family we celebrate Birthday Week, so you have seven glorious days where you get to be right about everything, no one can argue with you, and you get to celebrate you for a whole week. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Sally. I hadn't realized that our 60th birthday kicks us into our seventh decade, but I guess that makes us SURVIVORS!

Hope your celebrations continue to be wonderful.
