Speaking of my parents....my dad stopped by yesterday with a gift for me. It is a hand carved wooden spoon made by my great grandpa Ole Satern. I remember it hanging in my grandparents home but have not seen it for years...as you can see, it is absolutely beautiful and what a surprise. I LOVE it!
After admiring this gift...there was more...a nice card from my dad sharing a bit of history surrounding the spoon along with a comment, "if you think I lost my marbles".... and at the bottom of my gift bag in a plastic zip lock baggy (only boys wrap that way you know!) were some very old marbles my grandfather used to play with and a couple silly campaign buttons. Ahh, the passing on of treasures! Very special treasures to me....
My mom on the other hand offered her birthday gift to me in the form of a Julia Child luncheon and I can invite up to 7 friends! Mom's stipulation: can only invite those who love Julia.
Now...down to business!
