Mail Call

I miss being eight.  My daughter runs out to the mailbox every day with hope.  Today might be the day she gets a letter.  Or a package.  Or maybe the new American Girl catalog.  I, however, face it with dread.  Today will probably be the day I get the utility bill.  Or the phone bill.  Or any other bill for that matter.  A highlight may be the grocery store ads.  ha!  But today surprised me.  Today I got not one but two fantastic packages.

First, I got an advanced copy of Dreaming in Chinese by Deborah Fallows.  I only wish this had arrived Saturday.  I could have been reading it while we have been sick.  There is still tonight tho.

Next up,  I received a Park Avenue charmpack and the pattern Holiday Lineup from Emily at Crazy Old Ladies.  I just LOVE her patterns!  I've gone Crazy Old Ladies crazy this month.  I just can't get enough.  It seems unfair that one person could be so talented!

Well, it is nap time and I am joining the kids.  I can't wait to get feeling better.  Sitting around the house all day is getting a bit old.
