God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

An RAK For Me : )

I was so excited when John & I stopped at the post office on the way home from our Lexington excursion yesterday & there was a package addressed to me.  I had no idea what could be in it.  I had ordered a couple things recently but it was too soon for me to receive them.  The return address belonged to Sara at Salmon Falls Primitives.  She sent me an RAK!  This is what I found inside!!!

The dish is mine but the prim candle, fixins, piece of fabric & breadboard are from Sara!  Isn't it a wonderful little gathering? Thank you again Sara ... I love it   : )

I was stitching today & as soon as I sat down in my stitching chair Sophie had to hop up & snuggle down on my lap.
She seems to be under the impression that I need comfort when I'm stitching.  Sometimes she's right but that doens't make her any less in the way.  I do keep her off me when I'm stitching for other people because I know not everyone wants stitching with cat hairs in it.  She cuddles up on the footrest during those times, close to my feet, but she makes it known that she is not happy that she can't be on my big squishy tummy   : )

I hope everyone is having a good day.  I called & rescheduled my appointment with the local dentist in order to give me time to get a new personality ... one that is at ease & in control in situations like the one I am going to be faced with when I talk with her. I asked for the appointment to be rescheduled so that it will be the last one of the day.  I told the receptionist that I need to have the dentist's full attention when I meet with her ... I don't want her running between me & other patients.  My appointment will the the last one of the day on Friday.  Why do I feel like it's an appointment for my execution?

What a wonderful gathering from Sara - and such a sweet thing to do. And awwww....to Sophie and you. Neither of my kitties are "lap" kitties, but my mom's was. Oh how I'm gonna miss that kitty. :o((( Robin
