i've been fondling the contents of the box for days now. i read the enclosed notes and cards over and over. i am thankful beyond words.
after a long debate with id+ego, i've decided to show you the box's contents in appreciation of the power girls of the knitting group formerly known as the java station. know that i appreciate the sentiments above all else.
here we go. ready?
from maura: moth repellent herbs+sock yarn
i think i'm missing the magic knitting
book by maura.
from mary: tea+hand cream
tea comes in a real fabric mesh bag.
fragrant, warm, and yummy! i'm "getting infused" as we speak!
card from laura+emi
from jackie: hand milled soaps with
neat names like oregon rain and island kiss.
masterpiece by emi
from jayme: hand spun yarn, of course.
blue faced leicester black or schmeebot brown?
hm... jayme is onto me.
hand made card from erin
the following goodness didn't come with tags. they must be from the inseparable duo chauntel+tracy!
world class dishcloths with mysterious looking cast on edge
heavy duty grade
took my grumps away by just looking at it!
i've been sleeping with this book under my pillow.
thank you so much for having actually looked at my amazon wish list. i love that dvd! here's the inside joke: i used to borrow the vhs version of that video from the santa barbara library on a perennial basis. i would watch it nightly while eating a big bowl of ice cream. the white sands contrasting the blue skies, the soothing instructions, and the beautiful people are all very mesmerizing.
one evening, my then housemate fred came home during my little routine. he stood frozen in the hall way and stared at the tv screen for some five minutes before he turned to look at me sitting on the couch. then, with a confused frown, he asked, "shouldn't you be doing something, thuy?"
"yeah, i'm eating icecream."
the living room should be completely cleared by friday. then i'll walk me down the block and get me a thing of mint chocolate chip haagen dazs before i remove me the seal on that magnificient dvd!
