Thanks Again Secret Pal!

It's NaBloPoMo and I want to post everyday in celebration, but I've felt a dry spell lately. Life's been a little busy lately and I need to slow down my mind a bit so I can write. I thought I was done for today and then I get a package at my doorstep. A lovely brown package from my secret pal Lou. Whee! This is not just blog fodder, but good stuff!

Lou sent two of the things I was most excited about on my wishlist. I had a copy of Kirsty Macoll's Tropical Brainstorm cd but it went all wonky on me and I find I just can't live without it. Kristy Macoll had a wonderful sense of humor and wrote songs that make me smile and laugh out loud as I'm singing them and apparently Lou's a big fan of hers too. I guess listening to her also reminds me to live life to the fullest while you can since her own life was cut short when she died in a boating accident at age 41. I didn't realize until reading the wiki article that she was the songwriter for "They Don't Know" which Tracy Ullman made famous in the '80's and I love that song! I highly recommend this cd.

Lou was also kind enough to send along The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques by Nancie M. Wiseman. This was a book I had heard great things about, then checked it out of the library and decided that if I hadn't received this book as a gift, I would purchase it for myself. Thank you Lou! You picked great things for me.

By the way, I found out who my secret pal is and I actually think it's kinda fun that way! So, stop by and say hi to Lou at "Enchilada Sunrise" when you have a chance.
Thanks Lou.
You rock!

I randomed onto your blog, so I just thought I'd say hi!

Receiving packages is always such a blast - looks like you got some good stuff!

Very nice! I got my secret pal that book last round, and believe, me, there were a few moments when I deliberated whether or not keeping the book was a Bad Thing to do!

I'll have to see if I can find your NaBloPoMo page...

Hi! I'm Lou's SP11 spoiler! Just wanted to let you know that I ordered my Kool Aid from the US so don't panic! You can get it in the UK but it's very expensive!
