Chocolate, Flowers and Yarn!

Between allergies and a cold, it’s clearly been a long day for me. And, just when I was feeling low and sorry for myself because I’m not feeling well I got a big high – a high in the form of chocolate, flowers and yarn! 

Not just any chocolates, but Fran’s chocolate-caramel sea salt chocolates! Easily one of the best ‘thank you’s’ I’ve received in a long time! And they came to me after serving as a presenter at the Washington College Access Network conference today – something I was happy to have the opportunity to do. So, this makes the sweets that much sweeter!

I came home to two bunches of tulips from Michael that he got me ‘just because’. Oh, melt my heart!

I figured that my birthday gifts were done with but nope! A surprise present from my brother and sister-in-law of crafty supplies – yarn, fabric tags, yarn places, etc. – was delivered to me today. Hooray for birthdays and extended celebrations! 

So, off to go rest up and use the new yarn I go to start knitting a pair of fingerless gloves. I figure that with the cold, wet Spring in Seattle these gloves might help me avoid getting sick again!
