Coloring books, markers and LOTS of cards with well wishes — happiness abounds!
The books and markers are gifts from daughter Coleen and husband Paulo.
The cards are from friends, family and fellow bloggers.A couple of months ago we started going to adult coloring sessions at the public library. The daytime session meets weekly and an evening session meets twice a month. The library provides supplies: coloring books, pencils, markers, gel pens, crayons. Many participants bring their own supplies too. I hadn't invested in books and was using an older set of pencils. Getting my own book and pens was thought about, but not yet accomplished.
Now, I am all set for the next sessions!
Today, I am graciously sharing my birthday with many notable personalities, including: Joey Bishop, Shelly Berman, James Michener, Amal Aladdin Clooney, Gertrude Stein, Norman Rockwell, Elizabeth Blackwell, Horace Greeley, Nathan Lane, Blythe Danner, Henry Heimlich, Felix Mendelssohn.
And especially my cousins Rick (Feb 3) on the left below and John (Feb 5) on the right. That's younger cousin Michael in the middle. We were ALL younger then — can't you tell by the wallpaper and sofa?
Do you color too ?
