Introducing...

...and you know how much I love my coffee. ;-)

It's only a couple of hours away from my birthday. 
Today Blossom and I went out together for my un-birthday celebration.


You see, in our family we celebrate the day before a birthday, and the day after a birthday, as 'un-birthdays'.
The family sing "happy un-birthday to you..." numerous times during those two days! It's a fun tradition Mr E began about 12 years ago, and we've kept it going because it's such a happy thing for the family.

Look at the present that arrived in the mail today from my very dear friend, Barb. 
This sweet thimble, and the little cask it fits inside...
So cute! Thank you, Barb. xx

Not sure what tomorrow will bring me, but as long as the Lord is by my side, it's always a blessed day.
May yours be blessed too.

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
