i’ve been pretty cranky this week.
most likely because i haven’t had a good night’s sleep in a while.

but if anything can cheer me up,
it’s a nice package.
and this week,
i got two.

the first was great surprise:

ms. sally of rivendale farms,
(a professional commenter here at bitchesgetstiches)
sent me a lovely skein of hand painted alpaca and silk.
the fleece is from her very own alpaca, tianna.

the skein is seriously lovely.
it’s a perfect addition to my recent silk obsession.

thanks sally!

the second was less of a surprise,
since technically, i knew it was coming.
but it still gave me a happy:

my (most recent) diploma.

those of you who’ve been paying attention
may remember that i missed my graduation.
it was a little bittersweet, but the decision was easy;
my family needed me so i headed home.

but the joy of the day was only delayed.
because when i saw that giant envelope,
i felt a tension release in my chest.

it was one of those experiences of real happiness that seem to get rarer and rarer now that i’m a full fledged grown up. i literally had to show someone, and ran to veronica’s room with a stupid grin on my face like a kid bringing home an “a” to mom.

too bad we don’t have a magnet big enough to hold this bitch to the fridge.
