This just in: Secret Pal Delights Tired Teacher



Best. Secret. Pal. Ever. So beautifully wrapped, I hardly wanted to open it. The wrapped item is a treat from my favorite author, Kurt Vonnegut- Man Without a Country. I have jury duty in a couple weeks (gross, no knitting allowed) so this is definitely coming with me (it'll be hard to save it though!)

And yes, the yarn. Beautiful alpaca in my favorite colors. I totally love it. The last thing is a magnet that says, "Sorry I can't go out with you. I have to stay home and knit." She knows me so well! If I hadn't gotten married as a 21 year-old non-knitter I'd probably still be single!

All in all, a great end to a not-so-great day. Now to avoid the urge to knit and go decorate Emma's birthday cake (her party is tomorrow) and force myself to clean house at least a little and finish some stuff for work. Maybe.

Your Secret Pal gifts look great! Isn't it wonderful when they show up at the end of a tough day?

Good luck with the birthday party tomorrow!

I just finished "Man Without A Country". Better take along another book, too! This one goes FAST! :-)

I love the magnet! So true of most knitters I know. You've got a great secret pal.
