Rabbit, Rabbit Day!




Rabbit Rabbit everyone!

.

It's the first day of my favorite month.

.


And if you can't have a miraculously healed foot, receiving a lovely gift in the mail is a pretty darn great way to start the month, huh!

.

Last month, I won a giveaway at Blondee's Diary (http://blondeesdiary.blotspot.com); and on Monday, this very pretty package was peeping out of the top of my mail box.

.

But as pretty as the package was, the inside was prettier..

  • There's a new daily reading journal called "A Year with God" (and it's not dated, so if you get lazy and miss a day, you don't feel guilty about it! God doesn't want us feeling guilt anyway!)
  • A postcard of a beautiful watercolor by an artist friend of Blondee -- one worthy of framing.
  • and gorgeous handmade lilac lotion and lilac goats milk soap -- one of my favorite scents. The lotion is in a ball form, and it's perfect for rubbing on my sore, rough elbows and heels. Plus, I smell absolutely divine!

.

Thank you so much Blondee. What a lovely gift to receive!

.

It's a beautiful morning! I woke at 7 with the sun streaming in my window; the temperature is 3 deg celcius (38 deg fahrenheit). And as I prepared for work, I was filled with a sense of well being, hope and excitement for the coming Christmas season.

.

Ahhhhh! Contentment!

PLUS I smell absolutely divine!

Life is good.

What a great way to start a new month! We always say "White Rabbit". I wonder if we've been doing it all wrong every month!

We are just a bit colder than you today and there is no sun out there but there is snow fluttering down now and then. Glad your day is off to such a good start and that you are smelling so divine too! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Sounds like the timing of your gift was just excellent. Nothin' like a little pampering while your down and we all love to smell good. Congratulations on your great win.

God bless and have a relaxing day!

I love your positive attitude. Hopefully you'll be mobile by Christmas and able to do your round of 'visiting the tree', which must be a Maritime tradition since I've never seen it done since we moved west.

I know that package was a spirit lifter for you, as you heal. I was thinking about you today and am writing you a Christmas card to mail today. Terra
