Just when I thought I was getting better, Sunday evening I start spiking a fever again. Yesterday I went to the doctors again. What started out as a nasty viral infection has mutated into a nasty bacterial infection. So, now I'm on antibiotics and am hoping this finally clears things up as I have been sick for 3 weeks now and it is making me seriously cranky!

I haven't even had the energy to knit!

You Make My Day

While getting caught up on my blog reading I discovered that the wonderful Devin nominated me for the "You Make My Day" award. awww! (blush) Thanks Devin! Right back at cha!

So, it's my turn to nominate a few people.

Joanne for being my dearest friend. You are always there when I need someone to talk to, even if you are on the opposite side of the country.

Mary for saying what I'm thinking in a far more eloquent way than I ever could.

Christy for sending me a wonderful, thoughtful package that arrived just when I needed a pick-me-up the most.

Thank you!
There are lots of others I would like to give this to, but unfortunately they are not bloggers. Maybe I should just tell them, eh? :)

MTS2 Package

Today is the first day in nearly a week that I am not running a fever! Yippie! I'm going to take this opportunity to show you the lovely package I received on Wednesday. I only wish I could have shown it earlier!
My lovely partner Christy picked "Japan" as my theme. She included a platypus pattern (too cute!), 3 skeins of Plymouth Galway yarn, Crystal Palace bamboo needles, green tea, Lindt 70% cocoa bar (my favorite!), a glass dragon, a traditional Japanese cup & saucer and 2 packets of Royal Milk Tea, which I can't wait to try once I get my sense of smell & taste back! :)

Here is a close up of the adorable glass dragon:
And my favorite item:
I absolutely adore this cup & saucer! Seriously! I'm almost afraid to use it for fear of breaking it. Almost. :)

Thanks so much Christy! I absolutely love everything!
