Whoooo-boy! It's been a crazy week, hasn't it? Is it me or does Christmas music just cause anxiety when it's played before December 20th? It does for me. With every "White Christmas" and "Little Drummer Boy", I'm reminded of that list of things to be done...... and I'm still in the denial stage. Do you think it's wrong to decorate pumpkins for Christmas?
Joe was off to St. Louis for a few days this week, which meant that he just happened to pass through none other than...
Springfield, IL--Home of Yarn Buddies!! Hooray!
You gotta love Joe, he stopped at a local bank to get a roll of quarters just so he could make a Yarn Buddy run at the little Mexican restaurant who carries them in their lobby. He bought 8 of them to surprise us with---except one was a Whammy. (What is with that Whammy thing anyway?!)
Oh, and we got one repeat--bald Joe. But that's okay, we love him anyway.
And here's the Whammy....
So, IF you are lucky enough to find a vending machine with yarn buddies on the cheap, be forewarned that some jokester is also jamming the machine with Whammies to steal your money....and to creep you out.
Don't say I didn't warn you.
On a nice note, I received these earrings from Grace and Sharla (Beaded Tail) the other day.
Grace knew that I was missing my frog friends and she ordered these from Sharla to remind me that Spring is coming....someday. Sigh. These have been my go-to earrings lately to keep me smiling.
