Mom almost forgot that today was her younger sister's birthday (Happy Birthday, Auntie S). She didn't mean to do it, but it's been a hectic week. Heck, it's been a hectic year so far. 'Course mom did manage to remember that Friday is Valentine's Day and with Aunties birthday being the day before it really shouldn't be that hard to forget.
But mom does like to tell people that Auntie is one of those family members that you love dearly, but you would love them even better if they belonged to a different family. You see Auntie is VERY talented, and while her birthday does occasionally fall on a Friday (making it a Friday the 13th) her original date of birth was a Wednesday. Mom thinks having been born on the 13th is what makes Auntie so creative - she sews, cans, makes things with stained glass, does woodworking, makes jewelry (bracelets, necklaces, and who knows what else) and weaves beautiful baskets. Heck, she can probably do just about anything that catches her interest.
And because Friday is Valentine's Day the Starke County Humane Society posted this on their Facebook page:
Mom said she would buy me some treats that are good for my teeth and tummy. But no toys because I am a ninja dog and destroy them too fast.
So I hope you have a great birthday Auntie S and a great Valentine's Day, too.
