Pearl and Reuben continue to enjoy each other's company - as Reuben gets bigger Pearl seems to like him more. Probably because he's still small enough she can outrun him, but big enough she cannot break him. We did tell her if she broke the friend we bought for her she was not getting another one and would have to make due with the cat. I did not post a picture of the sock I am re knitting because it looks just like the one I frogged last week. Actually, it looks a little better because you know the second time you do something you have it down pat so maybe it's not a bad thing. It's an annoying thing, but not a bad one. Work was rough - but not impossible. Needless to say I'm glad it's Friday! I turn Old on Sunday - tomorrow for my pre-birthday I am going to Blooming Yarns to pick out the Perfect Gift and David is going shooting with Rich in the morning. We're planning on an early dinner with Susan and Roger, then will celebrate again on Sunday. They had a cake at work for me and Cheryl, her birthday is today so we share a cake which is nice. I was up in the panhandle this week, I still enjoy going there - it is so beautiful but don't worry - I stay where I am! Not only is it my birthday this weekend but we will be here a full year. We bought the house last year on my birthday - remember? We bought a mattress and slept on the floor, I woke up the next morning with David. We watched a DVD on my 5 inch screen DVD player, drinking coffee made in our $8 Big Lots coffee maker - it was a perfect day!
