It's my birthday and a new notebook cover

Today it's my birthday, I am 65 years old now....... No party today, but for tomorrow I invited the members of our gardenclub to go 'déjeuner' in a small rural 'auberge'. Only us four, only women!
And next sunday we go with our friend Lucy to a 'logis de France' restaurant for an excellent dinner, also at noon.
Yesterday night we had our new years eve meal; oliebollen (oil-dumplings) and appelflappen (apple fritters), made by Lucy.  In her family it was usual to eat these the night before your birthday....
Thank you lucy, they were delicious!!

This morning I received some beautiful English Emma Bridgewater mugs and bowls.

And here is my new notebook cover, appliqued with wool and cotton in the country style.

  3. Happy birthday, Baukje! I am sending you my very best wishes across the ocean. I love your new notebook, and I hope you have fun at your parties. Congratulations on turning 65, that is a milestone. Personally, I think life gets better as we age. Sure, there are creaks in our bones and a bit of sagging skin, but there's also wisdom and compassion that's earned with years.

    I am delighted to have met you via the blogging world, and I wish you many more happy birthdays!
