Friday night at Knit Night. I received this from Beth "Chocolate Sheep":
On Saturday, this Care package arrived from Knitzu.
I won a drawing over at her blog. She sewed this lovely needle case and sent it stuffed with treats- maple candy and 'moose poop' (chocolate covered cranberries) for me, and Milk Bones for Mr. Ben. She also sent a wonderful card containing a couple of tufts of fur from the two pups I keep at her house; Gracie and Zuzu. I don't know who went more bonkers over the whole works-Ben or me!
Nothing is more soul-restoring in my life than either spending time by any body of water or cuddling animals of any size, shape or species. After this weekend my soul runneth over.
I got to actually this lambie. It's not a great picture, but he's my guy.
He was a real snuggler. He'd put his little front legs over my shoulder and lean his ear next to mine and sleep. After 20 minutes, they had to physically pry him away from me under the guise that he had to eat or some such nonsense. In order to get me to let him go, they held out a Grand Pyrenees/St. Bernard mix puppy to me. Yep. That'll do it! He was about the same size as the lamb and awful sleepy-talk about a cuddle bug. All too soon it was back to his proud mama for a snack so I traded him in for one of these little guys:
Oh. My. God. I SO want one of these adorable little fellas now! Talk about a perfect pet! They don't make any noise, don't smell funny, are litter box trained and love to curl up in your sweatshirt pocket. If I didn't think Ben would think he was a crunchy little treat, I'd have one right now!
So all in all, I've been a very lucky little girl this past week; riches upon riches. Keep your eyes and your heart open and you get what you need....and sometimes a lot extra!
