Birthday Wrap Up

I ended up having a great birthday. Hubby and Mom both got me Knit Picks Harmony Options needle sets. Not to worry I am going to exchange one set for some yarn so its all good. The MK's got me an iced tea maker. It is great because we drink a lot of tea around here and it also works as a water filter (if you get the filter part which is extra) We made a pitcher Sunday and it was great. Hubby went to make pitcher number 2 and found the pitcher had cracked. I was not home so I have no idea how it happened but there is a big crack going up the side. it is a slow leak but it still drives me nuts. Hubby naturally does not have the receipt. The thing is set up to only work with its pitcher so I am hoping I can get just a pitcher for it. Off to Wal-Mart to check it out.

We all went to see Iron Man on Sunday and had a lot of fun. I thought it was a pretty good movie. I hope they make another one.

We had great weather this weekend so we all spent a lot of time at the park and just playing outside. Hubby got the stage and screen wall done in the basement and I knit half a knee sock. A pretty great birthday weekend if I do say so.

Hubby and I also got our trip to Colorado planned. We will stay one night at a campground in Estes. This is the same place I stayed with my folks in '88. We will have Friday and Saturday to enjoy the wool market before driving across Trail Ridge Road to the condo. We have a whole week to relax in the mountains before we have to head home again. I can't wait.
