12 Days of MY Birthday (Day 7)

Dec 13

December 13th — Day 7 of  the 12 Days of MY Birthday… Another day to play my game and relax. Since it is not my turn to do dishes… or cook… I could just read and play my game. And I did just that. I am now well into Westward IV: All Aboard. The mayor of Haverbrook is not entirely convinced I can run his trains properly so he is making me prove it. I took a break from this test of my endurance to post! My dearest friend made some homemade potato salad and surprised me with some new bookmarks! YAY! =) I love bookmarks. I really like the magnet clip kind and the spiral metal ones. She got me two different kinds of magnet clip bookmarks. Day 7    Magnetic Bookmarks AND residual game playing, tea drinking and cookies! As an avid reader I am almost always reading multiple books at once. It is nice to have enough bookmarks to keep my page in each. These little magnetic bookmarks are perfect. But I seem to lose them easier or I give them away…because people comment on them or what not. It is a relief to replenish my arsenal of bookmarks. Happy day 7 of the 12 days of my birthday… Thank you friend for knowing me so well—and knowing what I need. You are the...

Someone gave me a credit at Big Fish Games dot com so I could get a game Westward IV: All Aboard!!! YAY for games and free credits to play them! =) I have played the three previous versions and loved them.

Day 6    Westward IV: All Aboard and a “Get-out-of-cleaning” free card!

December 11th — Day 5 of  the 12 Days of MY Birthday… I read some of The Curse of the Good Girl: Raising Authentic Girls with Courage and Confidence by Rachel Simmons.

Dec 09

December 9th — Day 3 of  the 12 Days of MY Birthday… Today, I decided to enjoy my tea, savor it–the warmth, the flavor, the way it comforts me when I am cold or do not feel well and incidentally, I do not. I have a sinus infection and needed some comforting. Tea, oatmeal, my thick quilt all warming me, comforting me. Happy birthday to me. My friend surprised me today with a new mug in a pretty little keepsake box from Starbucks. Both are red with a white tree and gold birds and I love them! =) Another cup to enjoy my tea in…a box to keep. I love boxes! YAY for friend!
