Is It ONLY Wednesday? Well...Surprise!

Yes, it was "one of those days" several times over today...(Is Sock Summit soon? I need a vacay so very very badly!). I was all over the place, never a dull moment, phone calls, errands, worried nerves needing calming (mine, especially!), and just generally a day with no space to breathe, or even think very much. And certainly I didn't get to pick up the needles till I sat down in the waiting room to get the oil changed in the Forester tonight! And I didn't even get an entire pattern repeat done on those socks! They were that fast (whew, one more thing off the pre-trip list).

But it was there, in the quick lube place, that I suddenly thought, "I'd forget my head if it weren't attached!"


That's EXACTLY WHAT I DID! I forgot my HEAD (as it wasn't attached, you see):

Yup...Isn't she wonderful? She was a surprise (an April 1st surprise!) from Karen

The Meezer isn't so sure what to make of her, she didn't get very close, just sniffed a couple of times and gave her a wide berth otherwise!

The box arrived at the office today and I couldn't imagine what was inside...I squeeled when I opened it and saw her! I've visited Karen's blog and seen her's, mentioned it to her a time or two, looked at them on ebay, drooled but not bought, thinking that one day I'd get one, but not right now.

I did manage to get a thank-you email off to Karen...and then -

Then the whole world went crazy and I raced and scrambled thru the day, desperately trying to put out fires (I HATE days like that!) while also trying to do the normal end-of-month tasks, too. Sometimes I think I need a second head, you know?

Well...I waltzed right out the door tonight and left her there and when I remembered? Well, I'll tell you what, I drove right back to the office and brought her home where she belongs (tho' she was very safe behind my locked office door, still, I wanted her here, to photo and show you all, and to know she was safe!)
Thank you, Karen for such a really special gift, you shouldn't have, but I love her love her love her...

Karen asked me what I was going to name her, and I said, "Well, that's easy! 'Karen!' - so that everytime I look at her, I'll remember you!"

(And the post title? Well, for me? It's NOT's Thursday a day early, as tomorrow's my Friday - which is a really good thing, because today was at least 3 days long, ya know? Long, but oh so special!)

Well, one of your heads will always be a serene beauty, no matter how frantic the real beauty becomes.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
