Look what came in my mail today! I came home from work and there was absolutely nothing in my mail box. There was, however, a new battery in my car. Not how I'd planned on spending money, but the cold weather apparently just sucked the life out of the old one. It would charge, but then would slowly go back down. And hey, it started! So to celebrate, I went to the store around the corner and got some milk. Don't want to over do it LOL.
So, I get back home and there's a big squishy envelope sticking out of the mail box. Uh oh...have I ordered something that I've not only forgotten but also neglected to write down in the check book??? Nope...it was a surprise from Cat!
Look, look, look! A copy of my favorite knitting magazine which I can only get here if I order it from England. I love, love this magazine. It's got a nice variety of projects and the majority of them don't require 6pack abs to wear them. And oh the ads! My goodness, it surely seems there is a lot more going on over there and the shops are just so pretty! And it has big pics of techniques and new stitches every issue. And, there is always a little extra goodie inside it's plastic wrapper. This time, it's a knitting diary. Small enough that it can live in my knitting box and hey, maybe I'll even remember to write down names and colors of yarn that I use.
And more...packets of tea! Actually there were two more packets but I made and drank them before I took the pic. *G*
Such a treat! And, I decided that all this happiness needed more than an email thank you, so I called her. First time to talk on the phone with her. Lots of laughing and dang, I sure wish I lived closer! Thanks Cat...you're the bestest!
