A surprise in the mail!!

 Today I received a package in the mail...I love packages...
 It came all the way from Australia...it was my SSCS swap present!!
 Oh what fun!! I got to open the small package...it's an ornament for my Christmas tree!
A cute little snow flake!! I love it!! Thanks so much Shari...The big package will be the first gift under my Christmas tree when we get it next week!! 

I have been doing some decorating around the house the last couple of days...I will post some pictures later this week. I had jury duty today and our case was dismissed part way through because the clients settled out of court. So I came home and raked and raked and raked my front yard... the wind has blown all the leaves off my trees and brought leaves in from who knows where...I raked until it was just about dark and getting to cold to be out there any more! I filled up my huge 90 gallon green can...the trash man comes tomorrow...so I can rake some more! I have been asked what I think of as cold...because I keep saying it's cold...60 is chilly to me...hey...I'm a Southern California girl...we don't like cold...we like shorts and sandals! Actually, where I live it will get down to the low 30's in the night and it is supposed to warm up to the mid 60's...now...to me...that's cold! 
Until next time...enjoy the day!!

Hey - those might be some of our leaves you're raking by now - ours have been gone so long, they may have made it to California by now!! LOL....I was fearing you were going to say something like 60 was cold!! Right now, at 10:00 or so at night, the wind chill brings our temp up to a balmy 7 degrees. Yea....(Can I have my leaves back??) :o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I'm so glad it arrived safely! Hopefully it hasn't been too bent out of shape in the post!

I hope these next few weeks are good ones for you and that Christmas 'goes' well - ha ha.
