Mail Time!!

I love getting mail! (well except bills!) Last week I received 2! packages!! hooray! One from the queen:

She sent more yarn for me to finish my 'Midwest Moonlight' Scarf. Which is actually coming allong quite nicely after tearing it out once and starting over! (Its a pattern from a book called Scarf Style I love this kind of sea foamy, pale, blue green. The Yarn is kid-n-ewe, color 660, and it is very lovely to knit with. I'm hoping to finish it up in time for the holidays to give as a christmas present. (I'm a slow knitter!) Anyhow she also sent this cookbook on kids cooking. Little Ann doesn't give me many options when it comes to lunch and dinner time, and I was getting tired of making the same handful of things over and over again! Well I think we have solved the problem (temporarily at least!) Little Anne and I were flipping through the cookbook, and she was getting excited about almost all of the recipes! I think that it helps that all of the recipes have pictures by them to show how good they look as well as sound...I know that when I was a kid I always wanted to eat the food from the cookbook with the yummy pictures! (I still do!) So when I go grocery shopping tomorrow I will pick up some new ingredients and we'll test out a new recipe!

The second package was from my sister! It included: She sent a whole lot of toothpaste! yup! Well I kinda have a dental hygene obsession where I brush my teeth at least 3 times a day if not more...Jessica has an issue (or more of a fear maybe) of never wanting to run out of toothpaste or extra toothbrushes, so she buys them everytime she is in a grocery store! She kindly passed some along to me so that I won't ever run out either! I also received from her a little notebook and tinkerbell pen! And some candles in my favorite fragrance from Pier One (Ilsand Orchard). Yummy! I love candles!

I will also have to take more pictures of my room...I got all of the art put up onto the walls and then set up all of my candlescapes, so it feels like a real home now! With the paint done and everthing in place it is very serene! More to post on this later, for now I am off to bed! I've been waking up late, and having to run downstairs in my pj's! I don't particularly like standing waiting for the bus in my pj's where all of the neightbor's can see! :)

Ha, my daughter had one of those Tinkerbell pens too, but the cats ate off her head and wings. LOL. Where can I find the pattern to that scarf? It's awesome.
