Happy Birthday to Me!
Your Birthdate: July 24
Born on the 24th, you have a greater capacity for responsibility and helping others than your may have realized.
You may also become the mediator and peacemaker in inharmonious situations.
Devoted to family, you tend to manage and protect.
This birth date adds to the emotional nature and perhaps to the sensitivities.
Affections are important to you; both the giving and the receiving.
I am ordering my birthday club order from Red Bird Knits as I type. They give you 10% off your order and free shipping if you join the birthday club and order on your birthday. Since they are a Canadian company, it is even cheaper than that for me. Whee! I've ordered the Charlotte Bronte Shawl, the Creatures of the Reef Shawl and the Peacock Feathers Shawl. One thing about them, it's better (and cheaper) to order Canadian designs from them, as the American ones get whatever added cost/tax/fees added to cross the border and those are reflected in the price.
Rich, Alexander and Dominic painted me birthday cards yesterday. Dominic's was all about natural disasters, he said it was a flood, Alexander's was a house with a rainbow on one side and fireworks on the other, and Rich's was a Mediterranean inspired house overlooking the ocean on a grassy hill. Very beautiful.
We did get a sitter tonight. Our priest's eldest son is going to Creation Fest and wants to earn extra money to buy cds and stuff. He is the oldest of six children, and great with the kids. So, we get to do the Art & Soul trip, and Rich called to make sure they had a stinking mug and put it on hold for me. I asked if they had two, but they only had one. At least I can paint that while Rich makes progress on his bowl. His pottery is art, he spends a lot of time sketching out a scene or image and then picks a billion colors to make it and does infintessimal detail work. I slap some paint on and do some simple shapes or geometric designs. I get more finished.
If the jazz music is lame, we are going to take a walk or come home and watch the pilot of Little House on the Prairie on DVD (another birthday gift to me).
