There is really nothing much better than getting real mail and the past 2 days have been most excellent for that here at The Old Chapel. Monday I received my graduation pictures from Florida. Still haven’t gotten my diploma yet, but that’s ok. Anyway, I had ordered a package with four 5X7’s in it to share with the family. I’m keeping one and the other three are going to get sent out as soon as I can get to the post office. I also got a lovely letter from my friend Sarah Jane. It is always just so good to get an actually snail mail letter. Don’t get me wrong, e-mail and phone calls are nice as well but there really isn’t anything to compare to an actual hand written letter mailed to you with actual stamps.
Today, I got a package from my friend Tini in Germany. She sent me a couple of books that she thought that I could use:
She also sent CHOCOLATE!!!!
And to top it off, she sent the note written on the back of a Tori Amos postcard. Does this woman have my number or WHAT?!?!
There is a package going out to her today so check out her blog to see what I sent her!
So, I did a bit of a stupid. I sort of knit a few too many rows on my sock before I stopped to count it and now I am going to have to frog, well, a lot of rows. Here’s what it looks like currently:
Oh well. Now I get to learn about frogging with knitting!
Edited later to add:
Holy crap! There were stitch markers in that package as well! Tini mentioned them in an e-mail and I went, “Huh? Stitch markers? Better go check the packaging again.” and voila! there they were! Such a cool package!
