Yesterday the mailman rang my doorbell and delivered a lovely surprise!
Check out what was inside!!!
Lots of lovely goodies with my name on them! A fabulous mixed Christmas CD with some really awesome songs, a paracord keychain and those funky little lightload towels which are basically the size of a euro coin but then open up real big and are super-absorbent! At least that's what I'm told, I've been dying to check them out for ages! I almost wish I was back in Belgium where a hike is almost guaranteed to be rainy so I know I'd be using them real soon! :p But while waiting for an "excuse" to get a bit wet during a hike, they're already packed away in my hiking pack, and one in my purse for the "just in case". ;o)
But best of all were the lovely hat and scarf crocheted just for me!!! Check them out:
Again thanks a million Kim for this lovely surprise! And since it's still Christmas season in Spain (we celebrate until the feast of Epiphany -a.k.a. Three Kings' Day- on January 6th), I've been listening to that cd over and over! Great mix!!! Funny thing: I'm sure I must have heard Mariah Carey's original version of All I want for Christmas before, but I've heard so many other versions in recent years I couldn't remember it... until I put this cd on. Hers is definitely the best version! ;o)The hat and scarf are having to wait a bit though... all of the sudden the temperature has risen to 20ºC (68ºF) during the day here in Alicante! Won't last though... so I expect to be bundling up in those real soon! :o)
