I'll Warn You Now...

Mr. Me is away "hunting" for the weekend, I have a 7 year old wandering around in his Hallowe'en costume and a gang of 11 and 12 year olds playing X-Box. What does this mean to you? It means that I can blog without anyone complaining about me being on the computer - again! What that really means is that they want on the computer and just imagine the nerve of me using the computer...! It may be a post heavy kind of day.
Let's start with what came in the mail this week. Tuesday? Wednesday? I don't remember - it has all run together. Whichever day it was, I had not one, but two packages. One was from my SP 11 spoiler and yes, I do feel spoiled! In the package there were spices for dips, iced tea mixes, cookie cutter, a Martha Stewart recipe magazine (geared towards families - yay!), cookie cutters (Hallowe'en theme), the pattern for the "Lindy" felted bag (very me), gourmet jelly beans, yummy smelling votive candles (not sure if it is just vanilla or a cookie scent - its the vanilla I smell and I'd eat them if I could!) and a skein of Sweet Sheep sock yarn in the "Cupcake" colourway. The candles aren't in the photo because the flash kept on bouncing off of the bag that they're in and with Tiger around, taking them out of the bag just wasn't a good idea.

Since they don't have the "Cupcake" colourway listed on the site anymore, I thought that I'd give you a little bit more detail. Isn't it pretty? I think that it must be chocolate cupcakes with pink icing - YUM! Thank you so much SP 11 Spoiler - it was a great package. Of course I still have no idea who my spoiler is, but I was right in thinking that she is another Canadian. The postmark on the package is Alberta - a province that I've never been to...

The other package I received was a lovely surprise - I received a "thank you" package from my Sock It To Me spoilee, Audrey. And what was in it? Audrey made me a row counting bracelet (isn't it pretty?) and the cutest little sock key chain - simply adorable.Also included in the package were a couple of CDs. One has 2006 - 07 line from Bergère de France and the other has three bilingual knitting lessons. I was really touched, thank you so much Audrey!

P.S. For any of you who are morally opposed to hunting, please be assured that the likelihood of any living creature being harmed is minimal - unless you include the possibility of kitchen injuries amongst the "hunters".

That was the funniest post. I love the packages and I LOVE that yarn. The gourmet jelly beans are my fav! Aren't the swaps so much fun? I love the anticipation and the planning.

BTW - I like hunters so it is okay with me if they actually get you something.

I'm glad ou like it. I bought Cupcake for myself but it went with the package so well and I know that you like Michelle's yarns so it was too perfect a choice.
