Happy birthday to us!

Today is Ellen and my 65th birthday! We don't look too bad for 65 (especially Ellen!). My baby Ellen was my 33rd birthday present and now she is sweet 16.

So what have I got for my birthday? Well it is still early here and I am having a coffee and checking out the blogs of some of the SWAP contestants - that is birthday viewing pleasure enough. I have only been following a few via their blogs - Marji, Summerset, Shannon, Carolyn. I will catch up with the rest over at Timmels site later as the week progresses. And how can I vote? - to vote for one would be to not vote for another!

Another birthday thought - I am not getting enough sewing done! Last night I was reading a book about bodybuilding - in particular a chapter about goal setting. And that I think is the key - set some goals. Otherwise you put things off - you need a deadline. Just like SWAP! So today I will set some goals of what I want to achieve over the next 12 months, 3 months, each week and daily.

Now I must be off - birthday things to attend to and photos of the SWAPees to check out!

Happy Birthday Vicki and Ellen!

I had a "duh" moment earlier and had to delete my comment! I must have read to quickly because I got the notion that *you* were 65 years old today. Then I looked at the numbers and realized something wasn't right! It took me a minute to figure out the correct age!

Hope that made you laugh! Some times I just don't think quite right!

Happy Birthday to you and your daughter! What a fab present, and what a unique way to tabulate the age - I had one of the same confused duh moments Summerset had. Could not imagine that you were 65 ;)

Re the setting of goals - just remember that sewing is your hobby. While it is wonderful and fabulous to get things done, right now I'm having deadline overload, and it isn't a whole lot of Fun! Personally, I can't Wait to meet all my deadlines. Then I want to sew something that is Orange! Anything But somehting that goes with the SWAP.
Thank you for all your encouragement and comments along the way.

Happy Belated Birthday Vicki - but you had me going there for a minute! I had to do the math 3x before I got the 65! 'Cause if you were 65 you are one hot chick! I hope you enjoyed your day and as for setting goals - I find I accomplish so much more when I have a goal...

As Kit Deluca said in Pretty Woman, "do you have a goal? You need to have a goal?" Yes, I watch way too many movies!

Happy, Happy Belated Birthday!

Happy Belated Birthday to you and your DD! It's great that you share the same birthday. I'm also an Aries. My birthday was Apil 7th.
We Aries are certainly creative people, aren't we?
