Happy Birthday to Me

I had a great birthday. My first one in Quebec. We went to a great Thai restaurant and enjoyed a fabulous meal. The only thing I found different was they did not serve alcohol. You were able to bring your own beverage into the restaurant. Do a lot of restaurants do this?

I finally picked up one of packages in the mail:

Here is the close up:

They are red. I have no idea why they look orange. Maybe the light when I took the photo.

I don't think I'll actually be able to knit with them. It looks like the yarn would snag on the decorative paint. They do look really cool in my basket of yarn with my skull needles.

There are probably a lot of details I could be sharing at this point but I'm sort of kaput to put it mildly. Whenever people stay in my home, I'm always a little worn out after they leave. I find it very stressful. It doesn't matter if it's family or friends or whoever. I just want everyone to be comfortable and enjoy themselves. I'm forever worrying if they have enough to eat, comfortable, if things are in their proper place, if anything embarrassing is within sight....With three cats you never know what they will decide will be their new play toy.

All is well though. I hope everyone is enjoying the weather. I know I am. In fact, I am going to head back outside and sit in the sun for a little while longer. Have a good day!
