Earlier this month America had its birthday. She got fireworks like she has every year for the past 200 some years. America loves her fireworks.
I had my birthday the day after. And I got some awesome prezzies:
I got two Grow Your Own World’s Hottest Pepper kits from my sister. I hope to not kill them immediately. And if they survive to throw off little peppers, I hope to not die when I eat one.
My Mother-in-Law got me an overly generous gift card for A Verb for Keeping Warm. I plan to blow it on soft and pretty things.
Mr. Liu got me the Syd the Squid dye kit from Fibershed. I’m super excited to dye my yarn in a half-gallon mason jar. There’s a winter recipe and a summer recipe. I want to use the summer recipe, but I have to wait until it’s actually summer around here. Mid-August, maybe I’ll set it outside to dye. So exciting!
