Yes, I’m still on Christmas. Deal with it. :whip
I got a few lovely surprises for Christmas this year, too.
First was a package from our very own Darling Hollie. Completely unexpected, & so much fun to open!
Darling Hollie sent me a treasure chest of booty that totally made my holiday. The picture is sucky, but I shall esplain:
Hand-crocheted treats covering birthday to Christmas—an adorable cupcake with candle centerpiece … a pumpkin pie magnet … & a Santa ornament. Adorable!
A box of Nutcracker Sweet Christmas tea, because she apparently knows about my wee small addiction. (Six gallons a day is not excessive! And I can quit any time I want! :drinkup )
Very cool & spooky melting Halloween candles … a bag of Gummy Vampires (I didn’t even know they made those!) … & a pair of fabulous bat earrings (really wish you could see those better in the pic; they’re gorgeous & I love them!) … & a bottle of marshmallow-scented Zombie antibacterial gel. Because she also knows how much I love…er, hate zombies, & that when the Zombie Apocalypse comes, we’re really going to need antibacterial gel! And also, marshmallows are yummy.
And finally, my Darling Dwayne‘s autobiography & two The Rock t-shirts. Ah, yes. Now when I say I’m going to bed with The Rock, no one can doubt me! No one! :muahaha
Then, just after New Year’s, I received another package from our won Darling Cindy. She made me this gorgeous hand-knit scarf that I was so excited matches one of my coats! (It’s a little hard to tell from the picture, but the coat is royal purple & the scarf has a lot of that in it. It matches perfectly!)
Thank you so much, my Darlings! It was such a treat to fine these wonderful surprises in my mailbox—you totally made my holidays!
I also have to share the fun presents a close friend gave me when we exchanged gifts (also after Christmas…which is great because it makes the anticipation & excitement last longer *g*):
She knows me so well, because first she gave me toys for The Kittehs. (She also happens to pet sit for me when I have to be away, so she knows them pretty well, too. :winkwink And they love their Auntie Shannon! :kitty ) There was also a bag of snackies, but they made pretty short work of that. LOL
And for me, she had a great stainless steel Kleen Kanteen personalized with a kitty & inscription:
Awwwwww! I love this thing & know I’ll use it all the time because A.) it holds both cold & hot, & B.) it has a large enough opening at the top that it can be easily cleaned. More like a thermos than a water bottle. A lot of the water bottles I’ve looked at before now had such small spouts, I knew I’d never be able to get a brush in there, therefore I’d never really be able to get them clean. This one—no problem! :thumbsup
Thank you so much, everyone, for my wonderful Christmas gifts! I lurv, lurv, lurv them all & it was beyond sweet of you to think of me over the holidays! And if you haven’t yet received your individual, handwritten thank-you notes, they are totally on their way! :jumping
