Oh, wow!

It's been a less than great last few weeks...... Dad's health issues, older relatives dying, the post-surgical blahs (yeah, it was minor surgery, but I've only just gotten out of the restricted lifting era, which was severely cramping my plans....), work issues, the cold that won't go away (I've been sick pretty much since New Year's.....already used up 1/3 of my sick time for the year.... yuck!).....all that combined with the usual January ickiness (seasonal affective disorder strikes yet again this year.....I like the cold, and love the snow..... but the short days get to me..... ugh!).

So I was even more cheered up than I normally would have been when I got the latest surprise from my SP13 spoiler. Well, not from her exactly....but an envelope from the Loopy Ewe ....... with a very, very nice !!!!!!!!! gift certificate in it.

Oh, my! The Black Bunny Fibers. The Fleece Artist. The Spirit Trail Fiberworks.

The Sanguine Gryphon (worth ordering for the name alone......), Farmhouse Yarns, Lime and Violet, Alpaca with a Twist, Yarn Pirate, Zen String, and so much more...... an absolute plentitude of amazing yarns.

Browsing and planning and speculating and re-planning is half the fun!

On the other hand, maybe my spoiler is just being a meanie..... making me strain myself choosing from all the Loopy goodness ;-)

What a nice secret pal! It sounds like things are coming together otherwise, glad things are calming down for you.

Sorry your life has been icky lately. I can certainly relate, especially on the sick relatives part. Hope both you and your Dad are on the mend.
