This week is my so-called “Spring Break”, which means most, but not quite all, of my students are not having their classes this week. This means that I have a nice, relaxing week ahead of me, right? Um….that would be a “no Bob”!
Since this is my big chance to do things with friends, I have lunch dates, tea dates, cooking dates, and game dates planned. Monday, in addition to all the things I knew were going to happen, I got a lovely surprise.
I came home from my lunch date and grocery shopping to find a package on the porch. Hmm…I’m not expecting anything….I wonder what it can be? Oh! It’s from Grace, and it’s very, very light….Rip, rip, rip…it’s a beautiful, soft shoulder shawl!! Oh, so pretty, and the perfect colors for me. I haven’t had time to get a picture yet…but if you can’t wait, you can check it out on Ravelry here. Thank you, Grace. I love it, and the timing was awesome…I really appreciate the lift just now.
Another lovely surprise came my way this week, in the form of a visitor. Lu, from Johannes, sent me a note asking if he could visit….and a do a huge job for me. Of course I said….YES! It has been so much fun chatting with him…and he got so much done today, that I actually believe the stone walkway from the sidewalk to the shed is going to be a reality, and soon. I didn’t get a photo of that either (not having a good photography week) but, Lu did, so I
stole I mean, borrowed it from him.
