Quiet Birthday

Hello Friends,
I hope that everyone had a nice quiet Sunday. My day was very quiet. I am going out to dinner tomorrow night for dinner with some friends from work and on Thursday I am headed up to Maine. The ear ache is much better. It doesn't hurt any more when I put my head on the pillow.
Rich went out to get the papers this morning and stopped by the post office.

And a box was waiting for me from a dear friend.

Inside were these beautiful over sized mugs. The color doesn't show up well here but they are a pretty green color. Also some marshmallows and some yummy peppermint cocoa from Williams Sonoma. Thanks for making my day!
No, the pumpkin was not I'm the package :)
I spent some of the day stitching.

I put the other bird in and some leaves. I won't take this with me on the trip. I need to pick a project to take with me.
I am really enjoying seeing all the ornaments that everyone is stitching up. It makes me want to stitch some!
Well that's it for today. Have a wonderful week and thanks for all the birthday wishes.
