A Red Letter Day

Today is my special day.
It's my birthday!
Now can anyone explain why I woke up at 5:00?
(Psst, that's a rhetorical question so no need to really answer.)
Yesterday DH (and I) finally got around to ordering my birthday present.
It's something I really want, and have wanted for a while:

It's a Jordana Paige Knitter's Satchel, and of course in red.
Red is the color of my birthday.
Well at least for the past two years.
Remember my shoes from last year?
Do you know I still have not worn those outside of a building - the bottoms are still unmarked.
I bought a present for myself, of course, and I've been enjoying it since Friday:
It's Hazel! This show is truly funny, I've seen it before but never all at once and it is great!
I've been working on some handwarmers and watching the show, and I also worked on something for a festival we had here in town yesterday - at which I worked all day.
By the way, I am using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for the handwarmers and I truly wish I had known about this yarn before -- it is sooo soft!! I love working with it!
Anyway, I'm going back upstairs and have a cuppa, watch Hazel and knit.
That's how I'm spending most of my day!
Enjoy yours!!

Post Script: I forgot to tell you about the t-shirt DN1 got for me! She bought me this from Threadless:
You know I've been waiting for this shirt for so long. It is awesome. And irreverent! Because I'm a master of irreverence. Or am I a lewd street performer....hmmm....Well at least I'm not Karl Marx with a lampshade on my head.

By way of my visit to Major Knitter, happy birthday! LOVE the JP bag - use it in good health!

Happy, happy birthday. I hope you have a great day. When I saw the red bag, the first thought that came to my mind was "Hey, didn't she get those fantastic red pumps for her birthday last year?" Enjoy them both.

Happy belated birthday! Hope you enjoy your bag as much as I have. Your shoes from last year are terrific, but I would break my ankle.

Man, sorry. I get behind on my blog reads and you go and have a birthday.
Happy Belated!
