Have I gone to bed and woken up eleven month later? I've got a Christmas package,and it arrived, ahem, early?! It was totally unexpected, and a wonderful surprise, which made my day (again)! It's from Sybille from Germany. There's self dyed sock yarn with cool aid, the light was not right, so the colors in the picture didn't come out like they really are, but hey, what's new? I can't wait to get to knit socks again, would love to cast on right NOW! There's Gummi Bears in wonderful flavours, treats for the doggies (after I gave both of them a couple of the stripes, I put the treat bag on the dining room table; Sam parked himself right under it, with his nose up in the air to at least get a good smell of the goodies) they like them A LOT. There's also yummy chocolate, a card, and magazines, which I have to look through in peace and quite, but from what I could see, there are lots of colorful projects in there.
Thanks so much, Sybille!
On another topic, which is not at all magical or pretty, but very real. I wish I would live in a perfect world, wouldn't that be nice. I've found out, that my banking card was compromised. No idea where it happened whatsoever. Very inconvenient too, but I'm surprised how well the customer service, and fraud department of our bank works. Sometimes I wish all those thieving people to hell. There's enough stress in our family life right now, I really don't need that to boot. Sigh. Wish I could bury my head in a mountain of yarn, not hearing, not seeing, and not talking to anybody. But I can't.
