I have 5 books on the way to me from Paperback Swap - I'm giddy. I am expecting Emma & Me by Elizabeth Flock, The Center of Everything by Laura Moriarty (she wrote The Rest of Her Life that I recently blathered about), The Bride Stripped Bare by Nikki Gemmell (since I finally remembered the title after looking at it for the umpteenth time at Target), The Red Tent by Anita Diamant after seeing it recommended on Chicken Knits and by my mother-in-law some time ago, and A Ship Made of Paper by Scott Spencer. Wow, that's a stack of books. I'm giddy. I'm giddy that they will be more less free since I have sent off as many - so for $2.31, the price of postage and confirmation per, I get a book - woo hoo.
My mom wants a Bainbridge Scarf in teal or aqua - I had given her a "coupon" to knit her a little something of her choosing for x-mas - rather than make her something she might not exactly like. I am half way throught some fabulous broken rib since her request came via text message this morning. And teal - omg, stash knitting, fabulous, squooshy stash knitting, baby! I am giddy!
I have three takers for my Pay It Forward - I. AM. GIDDY!
I had a very good day. I had Cold Stone today. Coke Zero was on sale at Target. The Dallas Cowboys lost, and the Packers have beat the Giants before - thus better Green Bay Superbowl odds. I got a gorgeous Jones New York Sweater with more cables than I can count for $22.
And last but not least, it is 8:47 p.m. and my children are sleeping - not just in bed but sleeping, out, silent. *whisper...I am giddy* nighty night...
