Birthday Wish List

Sooooo... my birthday is on Sunday. The big 2-5. I can't believe it - I'm a quarter century!!!

Usually I'm off-the-wall-excited for my whole birthday month... but this year has been different. Mostly because I've been frantically busy finishing up my Master's thesis, but also because of my Aunt's wedding on Saturday. Sunday they're having a BBQ at my gramma's cottage, so this weekend really isn't about me. And (for once) I'm totally OK with that. Indeed, I hope I don't get too much attention on Sunday since it is still my Aunt's celebration.

Still... now that my thesis is almost submitted (my supervisor needs to read it, but he's in India without access to a computer.... gah, just a little stressful since the deadline is Friday), I'm starting to think about my wish list. Here are a few things I'd love to unwrap:

a kitchen scale - I think I'd prefer it to be new, but this retro one by gennamaria is pretty spiffy too:

► a juicer - I really want one by glyntpottery - the green one I've shown before or this pretty yellow one would look great in my kitchen:

► a scarf to add to my collection - I still covet this triangle one by WhiteMoth:

A Game of Thrones book set - by George R.R. Martin - I haven't read any of these yet, but they sound like my kind of book (historical drama with an element of fantasy, and most important, a series of many books!)!

► Birthday flowers - because who doesn't love flowers?
We're away this weekend though - we probably won't be coming home until Monday night or early Tuesday... so if anyone was thinking of having some flowers delivered, don't have them delivered until later in the week! :)

And that's pretty much it. See? Even my list is low-key this year.... I must be growing up!

Very nice wish list!! I have all the "Game of Thrones" books to date. I have read them since Martin came out with the 1st one. Started rereading all of them when the HBO series came out - his new book comes out in Nov/Dec I believe.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY (a bit early!)

Cute list. My list always had "horse" on it until I was 28 and bought one for myself. (Mac, a throughbred. I went to the racetrack and bought him) In another 25 years, you list will have intangibles on it. Twenty minutes alone in the hot tub where nobody talks to you or needs something. One week of never having to drive anybody anywhere... Just wait.
