Dishcloth Exchange

I belong to a group called "The Gathering Room". Every month they host several exchanges. This month I joined the dishcloth exchange.

I received my surprise from my exchange partner on Friday. Here's a picture of what I received:

Three beautiful dishcloths--the teal one is in a pinwheel design, the rose colored one is a rectangular shape with a ruffle on either end. the green one is made of Japanese yarn that is treated with silver ions to help prevent the dishcloth from getting "stinky". And, to top that off, my partner sent me some of the Japanese yarn to try in pink. I also received some body balm in raspberry guava (hmmm.....smells so nice) and natural spring. I tried the raspberry guava today, and my skin just feels so soft. I think I'm going to have to ask her where she bought this and get some for myself.

On the home front--my youngest daughter flew in from Texas last evening at midnight. She's only here until Friday, and then I won't see her again until Christmas. I just don't think she realizes how much I miss her, even though I tell her all the time.

She's lived in Texas for just about 4 years now, and I'm proud of her. She's made it on her own--working and going to school. She's happy there, so I am happy for her.

Tomorrow night is my Small Group picnic. So far, two of my three kids are going. Hopefully, the third will follow suit. I think it will be good for all of them to be around these wonderful people--people who love and care unconditionally.

My children have been through so much growing up that I am amazed that they are strong and basically self-sufficient. Not that there aren't still issues that they each haven't dealt with--there are. But, each will have to deal with their own issues in their own time--when they are ready to face the truth, face the reality of past situations, and finally just let it go.

K-that's all for a while!

What a great package, I have been wanting to try that Japanese yarn, maybe one day I'll get around to ordering it.

Enjoy the time with your daughter and the rest at the picnic tomorrow
