Happy dogs on Thursday, little friday and Thankful Thursday! Gretchen does me proud… she has a thank you post up on their blog for another package we got in the mail.
Huh. I thought I had photos of a special little package a Ravelry friend sent me, but I don’t. Just envision a gingerbread-colored handknit cloth with a gingerbread man motif… and then this awesome gingerbread soap from Pier 1 Imports. I love it!! Puts me in the holiday spirit every time I take a shower, but it also makes me crave gingerbread! There were a couple of other goodies too, but that’s the terribly exciting part.
Because it’s Thursday, I’ll flash a couple of photos from the beach. I’m so thankful that we have the beach house to retreat to when we need to recharge and decompress. This trip was very low-keyed… We didn’t catch up with any of our local friends, but “Aunt Sus” did come down for lunch one day (Gretchen blogged about it here), but that was all the visiting we did.
It was BITTER cold; it snowed the night we drove down, but the Knight wouldn’t stop for photos. I knew you’d love to see snow on the palm trees, but my driver wouldn’t cooperate. Anyway, it was awfully windy the whole time, so we never walked on the beach. It was all any of us wanted to do just walking the fur-girls long enough to do their business.
They were doing some major renovations next door, and Sis had a great time just watching. Funny girl!
Gretchen was frustrated because she couldn’t see. Since the sea blows in on the furniture on the front porch, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to let her stand on the table out there. Does anyone else see a queen surveying her kingdom?
I’m also really thankful that the Knight went to Wisconsin and back without incident, and that we have snow this morning. Why yes, I am six years old and just watching it snow makes my day!
