Swapiness Received!!!

I arrived home from work today with a lovely owl perched on the stoop. Gave her some fresh water and owl treats and off she went leaving me a parcel to open.
and this is what I found when I opened my parcel:

From my Summer Camp Friend Antonio, I have Werthers Original, old fashioined lemon drops(absoulutly love them!!) biscuits, and a Hershey Cocoa bar (hidden from the kidlet) A lovely tote bag with some scrumptous hand painted yarn.

A gorgeous felted bag, just right for my circs!4 gorgeous patterns, a scarf from Ann Hanson(which will probably get the sunshiney yarn :p) and 3 of Mario Knits patterns, which I am absoulutly delighted about, as I love his work!!
Thank you so much for a great parcel Antoinio!!

Gahh need to post this week!

Violet says: Bernadette's owl will fly tomorrow, had to wait for payday as I did not have a single spare knut to my name. Had fun putting this together and really hope she enjoys her summer suprise!! Summer camp has been fun this year!!

In the muggle world, we have 11 green bell peppers going with a bunch more looking ready to pop. tomotoes are taking their sweet time to ripen, I think it is all the overcast damp weather we have had this summer. they seem to make growth spurts when it is hot and sunny out! have some beef steak and some reg round ones all nice and green and getting big!

I have signed up for Socks for Soldiers. yahoo link and Rav link. Had been thinking about this for a while, then a sudden urge to do it struck after, well, these details are still mostly in the works will update the general population later! Will probably end up doing some beanies and gators as well by winter.

Signing off as I am dragging tired. night!

Random thoughts and a dream.....If i had the money, investors, won the lottery....I would like to open a yarn store/cafe.
One or two bits of importance for NJ, adequate parking(the real dream, lol) and within walking distance to a train station I think. Hours to reflect my knitters; Mon - closed, Tues/thurs 12-8 Wed/Fri 10-5. alternating weekends Sat/sun 10-5 or 12-6.

Metuchen (a bit expensive maybe0 or new Brunswick (not as bad as you would think)

Free Wi-fi, computer for Knitty and Rav look ups. Tables that are not to wide and not to narrow with chairs, a couple of loveseats, not to deep, but comfy. Walls of yarn of course, samples galore, books, needles, hooks, tchokes every knitter can't live without.

and a shop kitty(short haired of course) ;p.

ahhhh to dream.....
