Mail from San Diego

Dear Laura,

It has been snowing here. When I say snowing, I don't mean, "a few pretty flurries and maybe enough to shovel." I mean, "scary scary bad yikes horrible driving roads closed oh my gosh the snow is up to my knees and it's supposed to snow for the next ten days." When they said we were moving to the snow belt, they weren't kidding. I love snow, but wowie....this is SNOW.

However, after an hour-and-a-half of white-knuckle driving home from work tonight, I finally made it to the post office to pick up a lovely package that has been patiently waiting there for me since last week.It was yarn! From California! With chocolate in the box, too! What more could a girl want on a blustery winter day?? I have been aching to try out some Mega Boots Stretch, too.

It's my prize for winning Theresa's contest. Thank you, Theresa! What a generous and fun package!

Next time: Germany, yarn stores, and other goodness.


p.s. Currently reading: Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. Have you read this one? I'm about three chapters in, and while it seems clever enough....the jury is still out.
