Some Clouds Do Have Silver Linings

Remember the Barbie cake day yesterday? Well, I'm starting to realize that the bad morning I was having was really a warning for the superfantastically craptastic day that was to follow. I should've just gone in search of that GF Barbie Cake to emotionally eat in a corner somewhere, but instead, I stuck it out narrowly escaping the looney bin...or prison for the potential stabbing of another person with a pen.

Ahem...maybe it's just better to say, that is was a day. And not a good one. Until I got home, that was. First, I have a good husband who knows better than ask about said bad day, but let's me vent when I feel good and ready. And then I have a dog who lets me smother him with bad day kisses and hugs to the point where he can barely breathe. And there was the GF brownie...and the ice cream I bought. But the surprise of all bad day surprises was TWO RAKs (random acts of kindness) waiting in my mailbox. WOW....wait til you see them!

From Rav member yarnmagic, I was given a postcard from her home of Norway, Norwegian jelly candy, and the most luxurious lace yarn ever to enter my hands. I'm talking 1312 yards of blended baby alpaca, silk, and cashmere. drool! I pet that yarn almost as much as I did Dexter.

And then, another package from Rav member winemakersister had a copy of Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac. This book is a knitting classic and includes such great patterns. Below are a few of my favorites that I can't wait to someday do.

I think this is proof that the universe can come full circle. All is right with the world...for now, anyway.
