I’m 40!

It’s my 40th birthday. Doesn’t that sound old? But I just talked to my 88-yr-old grandmother and she says 40 is young :)

Henry gave me a Barnes and Noble gift card (knitting books here I come!) and Dan gave me a Ravelry tote bag, a wooden darning egg, a Knit Picks gift card, and a Schacht inkle loom, all things I’ve been wishing for! I can’t wait to start a weaving on my very own inkle loom. You may remember that I borrowed one for a while in Spring and really enjoyed using it. Henry requested a handmade belt for his birthday so that’s the first thing I plan to make.

It’s 100 degrees here today, good lord, so we’ve got the AC running in the back of the house (we can close off the bedrooms from the living room) and are hiding back here, all three of us.

I got hired to record an audiobook for a little publishing company, so I’m working on editing the very long Chapter 2 right now. I recorded it last night from 8 to 11 (the aircraft flies over my house less frequently at night).

    No – I don’t think 40 is old. But then my youngest daughter is 39.

    40 isn’t as old as 26. Ha ha!

    Happy Birthday!

    I look forward to seeing what you make on the inkle loom. I’ve considered getting one some day to do some tablet card weaving.

    Happy Birthday!!!! I hope you got my email ON your birthday. :-) Be brave, 40 is not so bad!

    I’m thrilled for you that you got hired to record an audiobook! That’s so neat when a volunteer passion can cross over and pay a few bills!

    Happy belated birthday, Kara! (Just getting caught up on blog reading.) Can’t wait to see what you produce with your loom!
