This is a secret gift for someone for Christmas. All I can say right now is that I’m sewing it and it is AMY BUTLER! Can you guess what it is?

Also, just in case you’re keeping count, today marks 43 days and gifts! Today’s gift from my friend who sent me FIFTY gifts to open, one each day until my 50th birthday on Thanksgiving day, is …………………….a darling little wire basket and three eggs! Man, she really knows me! I just figured out the clue on her list! “Your two baby birds have flown the coop and yet you’re about to get a third!” Referring to our expected grandbaby! So sweet!

I love birds, particularly “fat” birds, and I’ve been planning to blog about my little collection! This will be perfect to put with them when I blog.

I put the gift near my Jan Karon collection of books because they remind me of Angela, the friend who did the 50 gifts for 50 days! She first told me about Karon and I have found all of the Mitford series books at thrift stores. I love them so much I plan to start reading them all over again since I recently finished the last one! I really miss Father Tim, Cynthia and Dools!

Our Bible study is continuing but I will blog about it in a catch-up blog because Ninja has worked late and hasn’t had time to do much more than read it each night. We like to discuss it and look up all the different scriptures. Hopefully he will have more time before the weekend.
