I’ve been in front of the computer probably a dozen times this week, with the purpose in mind of writing this post. But each time, something or someone distracts me or pulls me away. We’ve still been battling this lingering flu and no one is quite feeling their full and healthy-self yet.
In the meantime, some good stuff has come my way, beginning with what’s arrived in my mailbox…
Completely out of the blue, Hannah sent me this awesome potholder. I love it. It’s like a little bit of spring sitting on my counter. And you’d think the p2p card was made for it. They go perfectly together. Can you see it in this picture? The little yellow and white buttons of color on the card? Perfect. Hannah, thank you so much. Such a good surprise. I love it.
The other surprise, I haven’t been able to photograph, because it is in hiding, waiting for a special 4th birthday that’s coming up at the end of the month. But Ellen was kind enough to include us in a drawing for some kitty bags. Check out her picture of the set. We got the cute tan kitty with green eyes. Mary’s going to love it! Thank you.
Other good things?
Emily’s green week has been beautiful popping up all over my flickr photostream.
Jennifer’s "made from scratch" posts are fantastic. She even includes a cost breakdown of homemade vs. store-bought. She’s convinced me I need a yogurt maker.
Ella’s dolls are waking up.
And the sun is shining. A-GAIN! Oh happy day.

Oh, I love that yellow. I just had my own deep thoughts about color this morning! It can really just do something for us, can’t it?
waaaaay overdue in my mind, but it sounds like it arrived just in time to brighten your day. always a pleasure to make someone smile.
Homemade yogurt is so good, and so easy. Just saying.
Yes – you have been missed! But I understand – the promise of spring has been distracting me from the computer. I’ll have to check out the yogurt making post.
Thanks for the fun links!And I also want to thank you for organizing mini-swap. It was a blast. I don’t have a flickr account set up yet, but I did post about what we sent and received on my blog, if you want to see. Not only did we trade some fun goodies, but we made new friends- even better. 🙂 Thanks, Molly! Can’t wait for the next mini-swap!
happy mail = happy girl. yeah!
I make the yogurt with a water bath in a crock pot. It works just fine!
