Anyway, my husband decided to not take any chances that I might not be here for my next birthday and has made this Birthday Month the best one ever: a gift a day.
Nov 18: My husband has a great sense of humor. And although we don’t feed the dogs from our plates, he recognized this expression as theirs. And when you have 4 of those faces looking up at you, it is sometimes hard to ignore them.
Nov 19: I collect glass owls: they can be found all over the house and even in the studio. So this little crystal owl is a perfect fit. It even has the body that matches the topaz, November’s birthstone.
Nov 20: One may have noticed a Daschund bias. I have had and loved Daschunds all my life and right now we have 3. Thus IU got this scarf. It is really heavy so when we get those few really cold days this winter, I am ready to face them. Isn’t he cute?
Nov 21: What we are looking at are the flowers. My husband knows that I love getting flowers and these appear to be lasting for a long time. They really do add a soft touch in front of my owl lamp, don’t you think?
Nov 22: This is a “giant” dark chocolate bar. I had just explained to Eric that dark chocolate is good for the heart and this showed up. Do you think I could convince him that pound cake was good for bone reconstruction?
Nov 23: We are decorating parts of our house for the Iron Bowl: we have our children coming and will be dealing with some “Alabama” fans. So today’s gift is a cute ornament to show our preference for Auburn.
Nov 24: It’s another sleep shirt and I love it. Eric has been buying from Christmas catalogs and he is doing such a great job in finding things that I am loving. I have now slept in this and then I laugh at it when I wake up and look down. I have to admit though that the dogs don’t seem to be overly impressed.
Nov 25: This one really made me laugh. Several times a week Eric has heard me moan about having come from getting dressed but forgot my reading glasses, which I really need. So I start pouting as I trudge back to the bedroom to get them. I have several pair but he got these for me and is insisting that they be kept in the living room, just in case I forget again.
That’s if for now but we still have a few days coming and that includes my real birthday. But I cannot tell you how much fun this has been and not only for me, Eric has enjoyed it, too. And I keep wondering how he is going to top it next year (I do plan to be here).
Happy Thanksgiving everybody, Gari
