And I'm 47!!!!

Today is my English birthday (I was my mom's late birthday present.). I was going to write this post in the morning, but instead I abandoned you all in favor of this woman and shopping in Jerusalem!

I was hoping to find some fiber for my spinning, but alas and alack there was no to be procurred. Instead I bought some homespun and some orange thread for my protest bracelet. (made my daughter one, and she added oranger, clear and white beads)

And I got a lovely fiber gift from Moze! Some cotton and flax fiber AND seeds to plant, which will hopefully grow and give me tons of cotton to spin. I watched as Moze spun up some cotton; she is a superb spinner (she showed me the wool she is working on for her socks) her work is so lovely and smooth! Something to be envied. She even makes her husbands tzitzit!!!

We also stopped off at my favorite bookstore, Sefer v'sefel, and of course, I bought more books. One book was for my English class so I get work points!!!

Anyway, if anyone else wants to honor me on my birthday, here are three requests.

1. Give a bit of charity
2. Smile and say something kind to three people who you feel like frowning at
3. Do something lovely for yourself. Take a hot bath, sip some good wine, or get that book you've been wanting.

Have a wonderful day!!

Happy Birthday, Rachel Ann - I appreciate your visits to Auterrific. The calm, nurturing atmosphere of your weblog combined with the comments you leave at ours lend some balance to the whole Israeli/Paslestinian conflict commentary. It lets others know that not just "militant" Jews are dismayed with the farce that passes for "Israel's best peace partner". Mazel Tov, and G-d's blessings for safekeeping on you and yours.

I'd pegged you for being younger than me. Well happy birthday.
Our second child was due to be induced on my Hebrew birthday. And he was. However despite the petocin he took his good old time arriving (almost 24 hours from the start of the induction) and was born the next day. To this day I wouldn't say that zerizut is one of his qualities. :-)

Happy Birthday - and I love your three birthday wishes. The only problem is I will only see a total of three people today - my dh and two boys and I don't feel like frowning at them but I'll give them a special smile all the same :-)

But the other two - those I can do! Blessings to you!

Happy Birthday, Rachel Ann! In honor of your birthday I think I will go have some wine! Wow, we all win on your special day.

Sorry to be late with the warmest of birthday wishes - but alas and alack! (I love that!) - I smiled and said three kind things to one person who was trying desperately to foul my mood today. AND, as a bonus, I took a nice long hot buble bath last night. So. Hope you had a lovely day.
