Look what I got in the mail today!
It’s a gorgeous, soft, handmade winter hat, just for me, with no Hello Kitty on it! I don’t know if you can see it, but the mailer is sealed with Hello Kitty tape. This cracked me up and absolutely made my morning, and I’m going to be wearing this hat nonstop. I love it. Many, many thanks to reader and talented knitter Suzanne Andrews.
Boy, between this and my amazing boots (not to mention those fabulous cookies), I think I might actually not die this winter after all, thanks to my generous readers.
Also of possible interest in this picture, just so you don’t think I’m making stuff up: on the windowsill is a green candle in the shape of a sled, which, in a fit of doomed existential rebellion, I agreed to glue back together. It’s “still drying.” The wooden thing behind me is a medicine chest I found on the side of the road which doesn’t seem to fit anywhere else in the house; and the white tube just visible over my right shoulder is my progesterone cream, which my children keep begging to use because it smells like horseradish. Here’s hoping no one has the technology to blow up whatever is displayed on the computer screen. I don’t actually remember going to any hideously embarrassing websites, but if I did, you can be sure I’d capture it on film and put it online.
