or what I do when I am not working or farming …

Pass the tissues!

I have to admit I had a low point yesterday. Driving home from our new farm where I had tried weeding and using a rake and finally giving up in frustration at how little I could do, I wallowed in a little bit of self-pity. You see last Monday my dog attacked me. Except for my legs and my torso, I am covered in stitches and bite marks. My arms are shredded.
I am dealing with it! Everything works! But yesterday, not so much.
I got home and found a FedEx box by the front door. w00t! For me! Who doesn’t get excited when surprise FedEx boxes appear?

It was a follow up package from Jo Anne, my Warm Ewe Up Winter Swap partner. Excellent timing on her part.


I chuckled. And that evolved into a giggle. And more giggling.


And giggles evolved into full-blown laughter. And then you guessed it, more waterworks. Laughing and crying at the same time, who knew I had it in me?

Here is her note:

Dear Mo, The instant I saw this pattern in in an old book, I knew it was meant for you! …I hope it fits in your collection. Love, Jo Anne.


Laughing won out in the end as it always does. Jo Anne, I love it. You outdid yourself. I keep this in full view and look at it all the time and still giggle. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
