Today has been intriguing - often a bit maddening, but overall not too bad...(yes, I gave in to my earlier disappointment and bought a skein of All Things Heather sock yarn from Sweet Sheep
. I'll show off when it arrives...no jumping the gun this time! But it certainly brightened my outlook - especially since it'll make wonderful Red Hat ladies socks! *wink*
I ran tons of errands when I got off work, and hurried home to unload the boxes I'd picked up at the ABC Store at lunch (I cannot believe how many boxes it takes to pack up a house!). I completely forgot to check the mailbox as a result. So ran down late to find:
The Sewing Implement Stitch Markers from Rachel
that I ordered last week (I LOVE THESE - go check out her shop - I'll still be here, but hurry back!)
But being the good Sockret Pal Mom
that she is, she also tucked in a bunch of cool things for me...note the teas and candies?
Well, she also added kitty toys...
(the envelope was addressed to me and to The Meezer, too!)
But of course, in this house, The Meezer has to share...
And I think this gift of four mice - all rattles, which my girls aren't used to, as most of their mice just lie on the floor and don't smell or anything - are a real hit!
And also in the mail was my copy of Spring IK - I'd already picked up a Country Living that looked too interesting to pass by at the grocery store...you see, they're calling for an ice storm tonight through noon on Wednesday - with accumulations of up to half an inch, heaviest over my portion of the county.
I might have to spend the next two days packing, knitting, and reading (oh...and yes, I picked up peanut butter and crackers, too! Just in case.
