Today is my birthday!!!!
I have wonderful memories of the 4th while we were stationed at Tyndall AFB in Panama City FL. I joined a community concert band while we were there, and we played a concert every 4th. I can still hear all the wonderful music - love those military marches!
I'm having a quiet day at home today. My brother and his wife, who headed back to Guilin, China today, sent me a beautiful jade necklace, and DS2 and his wife gave me an Ipod! Now I have to figure out how to load some music onto it!!!!
DH and I are heading out for dinner tonight - nothing special, but I don't have to cook. When our boys were small, I always had to bake myself a birthday cake!
I got all the basic quilting finished on the Dolly X-block quilt, and did the hand sewing of the binding last night. Now I get to add some of the "fun" quilting!!!
