Today I received a Random Act of Christmas Joy! At least that's what I'm calling it! This afternoon on my way home I stopped in at the General Store to pick up my mail. There was a parcel oh so gently shoved into my P.O. box (note the sarcasm). At first I just assumed it was the next Neighbourhood RR, then I looked at the return address. It was from Judy! I wasn't expecting anything from Judy at all (you may recall she won my 800th post draw earlier this year and I made her a needlebook)!
Here's the contents of her parcel!
A beautifully stitched pair of mitts! I've got them hanging up with my Christmas cards in my living room. Two Laura Secord chocolate santas which are long gone by now (Chocolate does not have a shelf life around here), gourmet hot chocolates which I will enjoy as this week winds down to Friday, and a beautiful Santa ornament for my tree. Thank you so much Judy such a pleasant surprise after driving home in another heavy snowfall.
We're supposed to get another 2-4 cm of snow ... however it was snowing when I was driving home at 4pm and its still coming down at 11pm.
I did stitch tonight but not like the madwoman I've been over the last few weeks. I'm tired and I'm ready for Christmas break! Only 8 working days to go. This time of year is always the hardest to get through... I'm sick of making lunches for work, sick of getting up, sick of deciding what to wear to work. C'mon Christmas break! I think only those who work in education will understand the grueling pace you go at during the school year. We just go, go, go and when Christmas comes along you're about ready to drop!
