Small Blessings right when you need them

I have to admit I have been somewhat blue this past week or two...I really had hoped to take a small 'holiday' at the beach this upcoming weekend but alas it was not to be...

So today while trying to get through more cleaning & my other domestic diva tasks the doorbell rings,
most folks would be thrilled at the distraction, however in my home the doorbell ringing sets EVERYONE of the dogs into a barking frenzy. Just in case I didn't hear that doorbell they feel it necessary to go into full attack mode.

After allowing the mail lady to return down my front yard to her Jeep I opened the door to see two packages on the stoop.
I opened the first & it is the book I recently ordered, I can't wait to devour it.
The second is a larger box and I set it aside to take care of another more pressing task or two not returning to the box for a couple hours. I opened it to find my wool swap partner Lois has been far more efficient than I in getting her Red, White & Blue Swap to me. A lovely bundle of red, white and blue wools tied with a grossgrain ribbon that has 2 hand dyed skeins of red & blue floss looped through. If that isn't more than enough there is a cutter quilt pillow in the box also, with 2 Scotty Dogs stamped onto it.
I promise to post a photo tomorrow.

Tonight right before I was going to go to bed I received an email from an Etsy member...she has chosen one of my items for her treasury.
I was so happy I had to boot this machine back up & write her a thank you note. Cara you lifted my spirits!

A treasury is difficult to get as there are 60,000 members and you have to be online at just the right time. When you are fortunate enough to snag one you fill it with your favorite items from Etsy. Then Etsy will post Treasurys on the home page, rotating them for all to see.

Then, I don't recall why, I went to my friends blog, who lives over the pond, to see what is new with her & I found the sweetest note in her profile. She said my silly blog is her Favorite, another little virtual hug from two ladies I have never met but have been Angels, delivering a virtual hug to someone else!
Thank you!

Oh we received some much needed rain today, we still need more but we are thankful for the rain we received today!

May you be aware of your blessings and may you be one to someone else today!

Blessings 2 U Friends

I really smiled at your door bell ringing. My three dogs go bonkers. The Golden gets so upset that the other two are barking that she will attack them. Visitors walk in to chaos. My own grown up kids have learned to sneak in.....
