Step outside a minute ago and
THERE IS A BOX OUT THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last week I was a WINNER at FARMER'S WIFE, and I couldn't even get to sleep that night because I was so excited. AND TODAY THE PRIZE BOX IS HERE!!!! The thing is, farmer's wife is so funny and generous, I really have to thank her for making me smile and laugh everyday and now A BOX OF LOOT from South Texas. Thanks Farmer's wife!
I brought the dog in instead of walking her, you KNOW I GRABBED THE scissors. But then I held back and figured I should wait until dinnertime when the missus is here....
Sherlock Holmes has noticed, however that:
-the box is very heavy
-the beagle, as you can see, wanted to OPEN IT RIGHT UP
-the box is beautifully colored by young and creative hands, I have NEVER had a custom colored box on my doorstep, EVER
-it clunks a bit when I shake it--maybe I shouldn't shake it?
I have done just about nothing today so far except:
-blog obsessively and crazily, and read all of YOUR blog entries too
-get this box
-walk the dog, twice
-drank extra coffee, read blogs and a book, eaten puffins cereal
-went to the mechanic, which is not too far away (which is good, 'cause I walk home) and they say, BLESS THEIR HONEST HEARTS that it is a not difficult or expensive repair on the filler pipe, not the gas tank or anything else
SO, quite a day, no excuse for not getting some actual WORK DONE this afternoon.
I am firing in the baby kiln, actually, an order for Knight and another order for Art on a limb...hopefully looking good tomorrow.
