Despite new information that my company is rapidly disintegrating at the seams, a disagreement with a colleague I thought was more honest and a cluster headache behind my left eye that caused me severe insomnia, not to mention indescribable pain, I still managed to have a good week! I think actually focusing on the things that create happy moments and those unexpected surprises definitely do help to balance out the good from the crazy or not so good! 😀 So this week:
- First up is the wonderful surprise package I got from my Ravelry pal Kathy. I’m not even sure now how we connected, but since we have, she’s had a munchkin that I have officially adopted as my nephew. As an addition to her family/support system, she sent me a wonderful surprise package this week containing:
top to bottom, left to right:
- 600 yds of Interlacement Irish Linen Yarn in Midnight Blues and some KP Bare worsted — hand-dyed by her. I sent her the KP yarn as part of a trade. She made a tunic for my Pooka with it then sent me back some of the remainning.
- Turquoise and Purple necklace. Two of my favourite colours!!! My Pooka Pack — an album of pictures of my little nephew :heart: Two bottles of nail polish — one with a matte finish and the corresponding glitter shade.
- A hand-knit lace scarf with beaded tassels; a hand-knit hat; and a handknit purple scarf. The yarn for this appears to be hand-spun! Awesomeness!!!!!!!!
Another “happy” for the week came during my meditation —
And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
This was a wonderful reminder. I had just gotten details of the disastrous state of the agency I currently work at and also news (unconfirmed) that my best assistant is leaving when she comes back from vacation — not that I blame her at all. You know how processing these kinds of things can be. All these questions swirling around in my head but that verse reminded me to leave everything I can’t control alone and KNOW without a doubt, I’ll be taken care of as they occur! Awesomesauce!!!!!
The smell of a freshly cleaned house made me feel content yesterday. I can’t be the only one who loves the smell and feel of the airiness of a clean house, curtains flapping in the wind and a favourite candle burning! Tell me I’m not the only one! 😀
My other warm, tingly moment came from a surprise call from a cousin I haven’t spoken to in ages. He was my ride and die buddy after my parents divorced; I couldn’t have made it through that time without him. My moving 6000 miles away, him getting married and having children made it harder to stay connected, but WE’RE BACK!!!!! 😀 His call was a wonderful end to the week.
How was your week? 🙂
