A Pyrex Birthday

Ginger gave me a Pyrex birthday.  Surely, thirty-two is the Pyrex Birthday.  She's become a big collector lately, so I sent her a picture of bread in Pyrex and Glasbake pans, saying that our family "loaves her dearly" on her birthday last week.

Birthday Loaves

At that same time, some lovely things were on their way to me,
a wonderful birthday surprise.

Daisy Bowls

I broke my largest avocado Spring Blossom bowl and asked her to find me a replacement.
Mike's mother gave me these bowls and I use them every single day.
The one that broke is the most-used size.
Sure enough, Ginger came through!

Gooseberries!

She also sent this sweet Gooseberries fridgie with a lid.
I put this dear little dish on my stove in my pink kitchen.
I had to put some gooseberries in it, of course, ever how small they may be.
I think the drought is lifting--my radishes have been cracking open!  .

All in all, my birthday was a simple day, which was more than enough.  I felt like I was walking uphill through molasses all day.  It was so hard for me to get things done.  Becky came for lunch and brough yarn.  I ran a couple errands with the children in the afternoon as Laurel napped.  Mike smoked ribs for me and took the children to collect butterfly weed while I enjoyed some time to tidy up in the quiet.  Not quite the fanfare of previous years (wienie roasts, if you recall), but good for me.  Birthdays just seem to be especially exhausting, no matter who has them!

Thank you! Yes, it is a good theme. I'd like to return to it next year. Pyrex Christmas, too. ;-)

Awww, so glad they made you happy!! Pyrex birthdays are, in my very humble opinion, the absolute BEST birthdays! It's sweet to see actual gooseberries in the gooseberry. :)

Isn't it interesting how screen printing on dishes makes them so fun and cheery? Yes, I vote for Pyrex Holidays, from here on out.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
