~~there's something happenin' here
what it is ain't exactly clear~~
with apologies to Buffalo Springfield which sang it much better. And yes, I was of age during protest songs. They helped shape who I am, I think, and often old lyrics pop into my head during the appropriate moments.
I seem to be past my SSS moments although that may be because I haven't worked on my sock. :-o But all around me, tempers and emotions seem to be on edge. In real life, in the blogiversary, it must have to do with the moon.
I have hope though, brought to me by Pink. No, not the singer, although I really like her..but the color pink and the person in my life most associated with that color. Because look what arrived in my mail box! A total surprise inside a shiny blue envelope. Look at all of these treasures. A Hello Kitty pouch now resting in my sock bag for the things I reach for most often. A new little notebook and a pen. How clever since I'd just used the last page in my old one. Sticky notes (can you ever have too many? Nope, especially since I use them to mark my place on patterns) Handmade stitch markers. Just the right size and not really dangly so they won't get stuck on the yarn. And nail clippers...much safer than rummaging in the bag for pointy scissors. Chocolate! There were two, the other one isn't pretty any more.
And, OMG, a hat for me. Knitted by a real person! It's my very first knitted gift. And..it fits! Yay me! The color is off in the picture but I can't seem to capture it. It's a very dark grape-y purple. And ever so soft. A gorgeous card. It really looks like you should be able to reach out and feel the petals.
And last, but by far from the least, Stickers! Except for The Girl, most think I'm too old for stickers. But I disagree. And obviously, so does Cookie. Thanks so much! You made my day!
And so, I smile. I have somewhere to live. I have things to do that I love. I can walk and talk and think. I have the most wonderful friends. And, I have new shiny stickers!
