Thursday, August 27, 2009 it morning already?

Dear friends,
Please excuse my prolongued absence from this blog. It is due partly to a lack of new events to record, and partly to a new job.

Yes, one of them activities that imply going to the same place at the same time every day and smiling to offensive customers. And not so much time off.

So, in order to keep you mildly interested in this blog for a bit longer, I'll show you some month-old pictures ;)

Some pretty Transylvanian hills (that might one day become a quilt),
and me posing as Pocahontas:
Time to go to work now, yay!

Another year older...

...definitely no wiser! Or feeling any older, for that matter.
This year, my birthday was used as a pretext for the surprise celebration of more momentous events: the newly-rounded (and bloody scary!) ages of two great friends. It was fun having 3 different birthday cakes (complete with a corresponding embarrassing pic from the past)

and a triumvirate of birthday boys and girl. :>

The top 2 of awesome gifts:
a pair of rock climbing shoes from all my friends (stay tuned for future cliffhanger-themed blog posts!)
and a whole lot of scrapbooking supplies from Wendy (only Wendy has this talent of guessing what people need before they even know it themselves!)
And something that made me giggle to myself. You know you're part of a crafty bunch when...

...some people have to go find a quiet spot for "just a bit" of sewing no matter where they are...
...or when, doing the dishes after a party, you find beads stuck to the food leftovers on the plates!
Happy birthday to me! :D
