Star Power.

Back to normal today. No more Queen for a Day.
But, wow, it was fun. I can't remember when I have enjoyed a birthday more.

My family was here for a spagetti of my favorite meals.

With garlic bread. My youngest daughter made it with fresh ingredients. Yum.

And since it was MY day, I got the cake of MY choice.........yellow cake with PEANUT BUTTER frosting.
Oh, my.

I don't think everyone was quite as enthusiastic as I was......and there was Peanut Butter Pandemonium ice cream.
Who cares about presents?

But I got two things that I have been coveting for awhile. My daughters bought me a speaker dock for my I Touch, because I am not fond of having earphones in my ears while I am weaving. And about a week ago, I was listening to music, and when I went to cut the fabric to put on the shuttle, I almost cut the cord to the ear thingies. So a dock will be very nice.
And DH bought me a Kindle, which I have wanted for some time. It is very cool, I already started reading my first book on it, and I will be able to listen to books while I weave.
I am well known to my family as being very fond of all new gadgets. They said I should change my name to 'Techno Weaver'.
I think it is important to keep up, don't you?
And I have to admit, I am mesmerized by all things geeky.
Oh, well.
And I had a couple of bunnies at my birthday party.

Aren't they the sweetest?

And one of them wanted me to take a picture of her eating a carrot, as bunnies do.
So I did.

And now back to work.......rugs to weave, studio to clean. I will have to wait another year to be Queen for a day again.

Happy Belated Birthday Hilary. Peanut butter frosting? I've never heard of it, I may have a slight craving after seeing that lovely cake. Yep, definitely have a craving. Sounds like a delicious dinner and with two adorable bunnies. Enjoy your kindle, I love listening to audio books during my commute.

Oh, what a wonderful and content post, Hilary. Happy belated to you, my friend. The whole day sounds good to me. I'm really not a tech geek. But I do agree that it's good to keep up.

Your bunnies are oh so sweet!

Happy happy birthday my dear, and oh... keeping up with the techie stuff at our age is most important if we wish to still be cool.

Happy birthday Hilary! What cute bunnies you have there.

I love gadgets too and wear my Ipod while I weave. I fish the cord up under my blouse and sometimes through the bra so the cord doesn't get in the way. I like the better sound quality of the ear buds. I have a docking station for playing for the whole room and it nicely charges up the device.

I get to be queen for a day next month... can I borrow your bunnies? My children don't seem to know how to make them!

Well, you certainly do have the prettiest birthday bunnies I've ever seen. I ripped my earbuds out of my ears just today, when I reached down and caught the cord on the front beam. What a perfect present. The jury is still out on the Kindle though. I'm the only Kindle-free member in my second book group. I'm in love the feeling of the book in my hands - it's a tactile thing.

Welcome to my world.
