Yesterday morning I went to the mailbox and found a big surprise. I hadn't gotten the mail on Thursday because it was too darn cold and windy to walk all the way up there. All these trees become weapons of mass destruction when the wind blows.
In the mailbox I had a box of treats from Momolake who's all the way up in Wisconsin. Look at that needle gauge. Isn't that the greatest? It's from the Green Mountain Spinnery.
Awwww.....so sweet. I've got a new guardian of the fleece.
Mmmm....I could eat my weight in these. They bring back such happy Christmas memories of when I used to take the kids to the Lindt store for teacher presents.
Thanks so much Momolake. You are the bestest!
On the morning of my birthday the brave UPS guy made it all the way down our long driveway with a package that contained this little goodie. Mmmm.....chocolates filled with Kahlua need I say more? Thanks Sandflies! You too are the bestest of the best along with everyone who sent me birthday wishes yesterday. They were most appreciated.
It wasn't much of a surprise because I had asked for it but when The Mister came home last night from mom duty he brought home this ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins. This used to be an annual tradition for all family birthdays but we don't live near anyone that sells them anymore. His mom does so I got a blast from the past. He got an hour long freezing car ride home in order to keep it frozen. Tee hee. From here 63 didn't look too bad after all until.......
...I got a call from #1 Son whose birthday happens to be today. He is 39. Now THAT makes me feel old. Good golly!
