Gosh! Another absolutely beautiful morning here in Eastern PA. No humidity and coolish temp this morning. Clear air. I already suggested to someone in my office that we call it a day by 10 a.m. and get out to enjoy the weather - lol. I don't think that will be happening...
On a brighter note, my swap package arrive yesterday! Woo-Hoo! Look at the loveliness:
My partner is Sarah who, if you can't guess from the picture, lives in Maine. Please click to enlarge so you can really see how spoiled I am! The yarn is from Sarah's favorite local indie dyer (Purple Fleece) and the skein is named "Wings." LOVE the name and LOVE the yarn. So pretty. She picked up the button (on the lobster plate) at local craft fair. The red, white and blue gives me a "taste" of Maine (which I also love). Those cocktail napkins are just too cute. Thank you Sarah!
I mailed my package to Sarah yesterday and she should receive it on Thursday. Swapping is always fun - a surprise in your mailbox and, meeting someone you didn't know. I had never seen Sarah's blog, or even heard of her - lol. Thanks Kathy B for organizing this fun summer swap.
A bonus to the swap was that it was also Tyg approved (at least the tissue paper that Sarah used):
I got a little nervous when I arrived home yesterday as there was a message to call my doctor's office (why they don't call my cell or my work number I don't know). But...it turned out that my doctor had already received the report on my mammogram and all is well - thank God! This may be a record time-wise for receiving results - I had my mammogram at 11:30 and my doctor had the results by 2 or 2:30.
I decided to skip yoga last night (I had stayed up too late the night before watching the season opener of Endeavor which didn't start till 10 p.m.) and since the weather was cooperating I baked a batch of toffee pecan cookies.
Most of these have come into work with me today. I saved a few for Fletch, Colin & Mailing, but the rest will be consumed here today, and I made up one package for the son of one of my co-workers who loves these cookies so much.
Other good news: After downing a cup of coffee this morning, I pulled out my Winter Sea shawl and counted stitches. Woo-Hoo! My tinking/unraveling worked and I'm exactly where I should be (though a few rows shorter than I had been). It's in the car and I'm hoping to take a break mid-day and drive over to Valley Forge or another park and spend a little time knitting. Fingers crossed work does not get in my way.
Hoping this Tuesday morning finds you all enjoying life and having a bit of fun!
