The birthday that finally ended

Yesterday was the official end of my birthday*. Yes, my birthday was back in the summer. However, my in-laws had to postpone the family birthday after a storm kicked out power, and we never got back on schedule.

My parents-in-law gave me a pile of small knitting needles, a really interesting and diverse pile of yarn, and a package of pipe cleaners. My "open last" present was obviously a book. I said that it obviously should be a book on "Tours of Bed-and-Breakfasts in France" and then opened it up to find Knit Your Own Cat.

*But, as gsh mentioned, I still have birthday presents coming...
