Today is my birthday. I don't usually do much about it, I think each child's birthday should be called birthing day and the mother should get the presents!! When my mother was still alive I sent her flowers on my birthday every year.
But, this year - my wonderful Dh went nuts. He knew not to get me flowers or jewelry... he bought me all of the James Wesley Rawles books, some more canning and food storage books, a case of canning jars AND built me a new pantry to put it all in!!!
He also got *me* a black leather bodice to wear to the Renaissance Faire ---- but that is one of those "for me" but really for him gifts ---
We sent the day together moving the drying wood we split this summer up closer to the house and putting away most of my summer tools.
