The View from Here :: Birthday Goodies

Birthday Goodies

blakdove had said that she wanted to send me some yarn.  When a box from her arrived, it was strikingly heavy and rattled, which didn't seem at all like yarn.  Sure enough, it was a secret stash of candy and cookies that I would never buy with the children around--they would gobble them up in short order!  Mike has tried to stake a claim on the Oreos, so it's a good thing he travels.  Thank you, Tanya!

It has been fun to have the things in stealth. :-) I'm not sure about the yarn yet. I have not taken the time to knit as I should and still have most of my birthday yarn left from last year.

Tanya is so generous. I want to try and be more like her! We have some beautiful knit booties from her that are on their third baby girl, and lots of other little baby goodies. For some reason I am really horrible at going to the post office even though we have a nice one here. Maybe it's left over from our purgatory of a post office in Philly.

I had major sour patch kids cravings while pregnant.

Oh my goodness! I wrote the above comment in the car in the way home from Vashon, and when I got home there was a package waiting for ME from Tanya! I'll write you separately, Tanya, but THANK YOU!

She is so generous. She had a giant bag of sour patch kids at her house when we visited and she let me eat some. :-) And how wonderful that you had a package, too! What joy the mail brings.

Glad you got it! I hope the little sweater still fits.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
