“And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.” (Abraham Lincoln)This is what 39 looks like: my wonderful husband celebrates his birthday today. That's him at the top of Camelback Peak, which we both climbed this morning. Whew! It was a lot harder than I thought. More rock climbing than hiking, but we made it.
We are here in Phoenix, Arizona, visiting my parents, who spend the month of March here every year. It sure was nice to get away from the snowy winter of Chicago. I think we both needed a vacation.
My parents are great hosts: We went to the Cubs/Brewers spring training game yesterday (Cubs won!) then my mom made crab legs for dinner. We ended the night with a game of dominos. Tonight we're going out to a Chinese restaurant for Ed's birthday. Tomorrow we plan to lie by the pool most of the day. At least I do.
I've been doing some knitting and have some craft news to share, but will try to post later in the week. For now, I'm just trying to catch up on my blog reading and on reading all my mom's good knitting books and magazines. I hope to have a finished sock to post soon!
