Postal Largesse

I knew you wouldn't believe it if I just told you what came in the mail today. So it's a good thing the batteries in my camera were new so I could take all these pictures. This all came in a box from trek in an effort to counteract the nastiness of the past three weeks.

Bubble bath, a journal and a book that will probably make me cry.

Four balls of Sugar 'N Cream and a wonderful reproduction of Dave's Garterlac Dishcloth pattern.

Soap, Frog Tree alpaca yarn (drool), hand lotion and a too cute stitch marker.

Gummy Bears! And my favorite tea!

And the piece de resistance - a trek dishcloth bag !!! (with more wonderful stitch markers, which I suspect she made).

All from trek. All in one box. All a bit overwhelming. I feel like I should fly to New Jersey and take the entire trek family out for dinner. Or buy them a new car or something. This simply goes beyond kindness. I'm sort of at loss for words. Unbelievable as that may seem.

However, I do have two words for the Anonymous Blog Troll who left such a wonderful comment for me. Bring it. Preferably before I finish tracking your IP. I'm in the mood for a good fight.

    I just came across your blog. I'm sorry to hear about your loss and the trouble you have been having. I'm glad you have such good friends as Trek - how incredibly nice of her!

    Here's hoping things get better now that you are home :)

    Trek knows how to make a friend feel appreciated, that is for sure!!! But, you know, I think that you generally get back what you give in life. You've been pretty generous to others when they needed a boost. (You will never know just how "well-timed" your sock knitters kit was!)

    Enjoy your gifties and I hope they help to make things feel a little better!
