What a Surprise for Me!

Happy Halloween to me! After fighting it for ages, I finally joined Ravelry this past year. I really hadn't found anybody I 'clicked' with, but I hung in there. Finally I found someone who reminded me of my daughter. She's a little older than R, she has the type of dogs that R loves, she is a wonderful knitter - like R, she was homeschooled - well, I could just go on and on. We started writing to one another and found out we had even more in common. It's been so much fun getting into Ravelry everyday and finding a letter from her. She's also a smart knitter and has pointed some patterns out to me I probably wouldn't have found on my own. Well, I knew she was making something for 'someone' and hoped and prayed that 'someone' would be me. It was! Today the mail was dropped off and this was what was there:
How Halloweeny can you get? I don't want to use them! I guess I could hang them up for decorations until Halloween passes.

Somebody else got some treats too - Ginger. She got three little fibery goodies. First I took the fuzzy little ball out and she seemed slightly interested. The mouse is blue, Ginger's favorite color and the interest grew. Then out came the little, bitty green ball. Ginger LOVED it! She was bouncing all over the furniture throwing it here and there. Then she suddenly realized we were watching her and stopped to regain her composure.
Try as you might Ginger, we know you aren't a grouch ALL the time!

Thanks Ravelry buddy! You made my Halloween!
