Those Twins!

That's TwinsetJan and TwinsetEllen - THOSE Twins! made my day a lot brighter today!

You see they had a contest on their blog, and I was one of three winners. The prize? That Namaste Needlecase there. Nice, right? THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, Jan & Ellen!!!

Well. Then I stopped by the other night and discovered that Ellen had a Socktopus.

It's not called a Socktopus on the Ikea site, it's a Pressa. But as far as I can see I can't order one from the online store, I'd have to go to the nearest one (which is Charlotte NC, a mere 3 hours away). Well it happens I found mine on ebay, and it was a tad pricier than the Ikea one would have been, but I didn't have to either pay shipping OR drive 3 hours and buy a tank of gasoline.

And I LOVE my Socktopus...except: the hook on top is too narrow to fit my shower rod - Not to worry! I have an S-hook that I discovered will fit just fine! I decided I had to have it because The Tonk loves my drying rack to the point of insisting that it's REALLY his jungle gym...and his favorite time to climb it is the middle of the night. I keep it set up in my bedroom, of course, so you can imagine how fun it is to be awakened with a CRASH and then having to get up, pick up all the socks, rehang them and chastise the boy...and then try to get back to sleep?

So...those Twins! What WOULD I do without them?

I KNOW I won the other prize.
I love, love, love the socktopus and the Ikea here is only about an hour away.

The real question is what would we do without you?

Your post title made me smile - since we haven't lived close to each other for decades, it has been, well, decades since someone has referred to us as the twins. Kinda nice!

They are pretty cool folks, aren't they? I'm loving that Socktopus - I may have to see if our local Ikea has one...

Love the socktopus, and a great solution to the jungle gym/drying rack problem. I'd order from Ebay just to avoid having to go to an IKEA; they are TOO big.

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.
