To 5th Avenue and beyond
Before & After

Let's get this party started

It's over a week 'til my birthday, but festivities commence this weekend with tickets for tomorrow morning's live broadcast of Michael Feldman's Whad'Ya Know? in Green Bay. Listen for me! Ha.

I think we'll meander home and find lunch somewhere, and maybe some wine. It's my birthday!

Mom's gift to me is a morning with her cleaning lady at my house, and I just scheduled that for the middle of next month. I had a regular cleaning lady a long, long time ago. It's been a long time. This is just the motivation I need right now to organize and clean out some of the crap that's been weighing me down!

The sky has been pretty cool lately. I love the different shades of blue at top and bottom of this photo from yesterday (southerly, on my way to the mailbox at work).

I'll be dyeing again this weekend. I started knitting this and it's not working -- there's no punch. Also? I've realized that I like darker, richer, more saturated color. (Oh, really?) I love the bottom third of this, but the rest... eeeeek! So, back to the dye pot. Stay tuned.

Have a great weekend!!

Great time to start a celebration that continues on. Truly you should party the whole month of November!

It's always good to start celebrating early!


Have fun today - wine with lunch is a must!


Have a a great day (and week)!


Birthdays should be celebrated for days and days! :-) I can see what you mean about that yarn. It's cool and all. . . but it just doesn't scream "Vicki" to me. Can't wait to see what you do with it!


Whooo! Have fun at the broadcast! Excellent start of the birth month. :D I'm going to be in Appleton this coming work week--do you think we can find time for a get-together?


Everyone should have a whole birthday week!
