Happy dance!

The past few days have been quite good... here's why:

1. Package from my Secret Pal!!
Goodies from my secret pal!

This was 2 packages combined into one mega-package, and WOW I've been spoiled. From the top, mostly clockwise, there's a copy of Knit Wit and a spool of the yarn needed to make the "Corral Belt", a nifty card featuring Elvis, a White Barn Candle Company sweet pea candle (Did you know that I have this exact same candle in cucumber melon and vanilla? They make a nice set), strawberry Fruit Leather (gone now), Chocolate Traveler milk chocolate wedges (half gone... someone lives near a Trader Joe's, methinks), 2 skeins of Regia Crazy Color, a fuzz remover and knit fixer set, some Tony the Tiger post-its, a set of knitter notecards, Clover DPNs, and a skein of Andes wool that is begging to be something felted.

Thanks SP!! Still not much clue who you are... I know you said one of the snacks was a clue, but you may be giving me too much credit for being brainy and deductive. :)

2. Finished my Bias Corset (which is getting its own post).

3. Tempting has been getting a bunch of compliments, perhaps my favorite being that it makes me look 'busty'. When you're built like me and someone says you look busty, it's a good day.

4. Nice evening spent with a spinning group I just joined. I was definitely the low-tech end of things, as I was there with my trusty drop spindle. No wheel for me at the moment. I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll want a wheel if I try one, so I'm putting off trying one for as long as possible. I digress. Fun night, and I got a nice amount of spinning done. :)

5. There was a kid with light-up shoes in the library, which I love.

6. New cookbooks! (which will be getting all kinds of love on the other blog, most likely starting tomorrow).

7. And some particularly happy news for me: My computer has started working properly again. For the last 4 months or so, it's been taking a full 10 minutes to start up. Suddenly, it's back to normal. Yes!! This made me squee quite a bit...
