So... the down side of that... was that I did get caught in the rain... and I had my matching Vera Bradley umbrella with me. And the wind came along... and broke my matching umbrella!!!! I was soooooooo NOT HAPPY!!!!
So... onward I went... knowing that my $29.00 retired umbrella was toast... and that I was going to have to stop at the Post Office... cuz I haven't been there since, ummmm... Tuesday?
I expected to have the normal amount of stuff... but there was a little yellow tag! It was a package pickup tag! And it didn't say I had to sign for something! (Darn IRS!)
I went to the window to see what I was going to get... because I haven't ordered Anything in weeks! It was a little package addressed to me... from my Sister! She never does things like that! I was so surprised... and I love what she sent! I know that we have at least 4 more weeks of bad weather coming... and I am going to use these like mad!!!
Look at this!!!!
Two of the most adorable hand crocheted caps that can be worn as berets! I love these! I can hide my grown out roots... since I can't seem to find someone who can color my hair correctly!
I could have used these this morning to cover my rainsoaked hair
and spared the entire village of having to look at me!
It incredibly sweet and unexpected and I know that tomorrow, when I go out of the house to do errands with DH... I am wearing one of these! (And it's funny... the more that I live here, the more back to nature and "crunchie granola" I become! (Can you be crunchie granola and still be a cottage-style junkie?) Right down to my rag wool socks and birkies... trudging off with my shopping basket full of green bags to carry it all home! I don't even think too much about my old life... the one with brands and labels and "designer stuff" that I thought I had to have. I think this one is going pretty darn well... if I do say so, myself!
Thank you, Dear Sissy for such sweet gifts! I love them and love that you thought of me!
Thanks for reading... be blessed!
