More birthday presents!



Yesterday , I received yet another birthday present- I am such a lucky girl. Cheryl sent me the Red Velvet Sampler chart which I have been drooling over and some resd white and blue sock yarn that I couldn't find around here. Isn't she a sweet heart? I think so. Thank you so much Cheryl. The floweres are not a birthday present but an "end of the school year" gift from one of my English students. Sweet.
We have had a slight break in the hot weather- this is certainly due to me having purchased two fans yesterday. I even put them together myself, breaking a nail in the process , but never the less feeling good about providing my kids with some cool air. It is still very warm and we had thunder storms all night so it is very humid today. But, I always sleep well when it thunders and rains .
It is a holiday in Germany today so I slept late and am now lounging around in my pjs- must pull myself together and take my silly dog for a walk.

You are a lucky girl, Rachael! More gifts yesterday, then the weather cooled off, and to top it off, an extra day off! Lovely. :D

What a beautiful chart, fun yarn, and lovely flowers! And I am so envious of the 'lounging about in PJs' idea...

So glad you liked your goodies Rachael. I am also glad they made it to you before you left for the US. I can't wait to see the socks. Oh and by the way can you also pick me so Arnica 30c?
