|The big reveal|
Maureen added great notes to the packaging . . . "fun with socks, shawls and ?????."
Two books, which I have not yet read (The Scull Beneath the Skin by PD James and Playing for the Ashes by Elizabeth George). I am looking forward to reading both.
A bag of walnut brittle. A box of peanut brittle. A box of mixed candies (the white box in the front on the pic below . . . ummmm, I would show you what was inside but what was there isn't anymore . . . ). A Sacramento coffee cup. A skein of On Your Toes bamboo yarn. A "sock purse" with stitch markers . . . very clever ones that are supposed to remind you that this is a decrease or increase row. A packet of 10 Bamboo Marking Pins that might just work in my hair. A book of Knitting Flowers.

And the timing was perfect. We have had a very very mild winter so far. A remarkable thing for Cleveland, Ohio. I've only worn my winter coat a handful of times. Usually, we are knee deep in snow by this time. Yesterday morning, when I left the house it was 40. When I got home, it was 42. I went to deep water aerobics at 7:30 and it was 35. When I got home at 9:15, it was 27. This morning, it was 17, with a wind-chill that brought the temp to -2. Oh, and it was snowing.
From my office, I look over a park, Cleveland City Hall, the Amtrak station and the Browns' Stadium. This is what I could see this morning.

In any event, Maureen's package arrived just in the nick of time. I will have a wonderful time, snuggled up either knitting or reading, munching away on my peanut brittle. Thanks so much and Happy New Year!!!
