Birthdays, blankets, books...oh...and a new house!!

I had a birthday recently, and Marnie, Phil and Denver took me out for lunch...
 (Denver, Marnie, Phil)

And gave me this lovely book  Winter in the Alps.  So nice on these hot summer days (I don't like summer!!)...


A joy to read...


Love the photography...


And the yummy (but simple) recipes...


Which I will definitely be trying...




And...guess who's got a new house!!!!  As of next week, and thanks to Natasha, Patrick and Jefferson...

ME!!!
 
Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou family...for making this possible!!!

And for the Yarn Along link up...
 
 
The blanket I was working on previously is together (36 squares) and I am now crocheting some border rows and an edging...

 
And as well as reading my Winter In the Alps book, I am also reading The Detour which I am really enjoying (his style of writing and the setting, as well as the plot, which although simple, is also intriguing)...
 
 
Will leave you with this quote I came across recently.  Mostly attributed to Mark Twain...
 
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
 
   Explore...dream...discover...  And enjoy your week :))
