my package from my pal rachel finally arrived....
i was so excited as i was getting anxious about it not being here yet, along with our receptionist who i am sure was sick of me going down to her desk every day to ask if a package had arrived for me. finally, she was just starting to roll her eyes at me as i approached because she knew what i was going to ask!!!
i waited until i got home to open it, because i didn't want the wrapping to go flying all over the office as i tore into it. plus, i am greedy and didn't want to share any of the chocolate with my co-workers. d'oh!!
inside, my super pal from alaska filled it with some locally made assorted chocolates, which i haven't opened yet...and three different kinds of dark chocolate (my favorite type of all chocolates), one of which is a very strange "bubble chocolate" - which at first i didn't quite care for, until that first piece completely melted in my mouth...then i was hooked. i devoured the entire bar in one sitting...which explains why i haven't yet sampled the alaskan chocolate! then there are two types of hot cocoa mix, which is PERFECT for these cooler nights, and of course i can't forget the yarn. a very luscious new england highland wool...in the color cocoa!! i think i am going to make a scarf out of it, which will co-ordinate perfectly with a sweater that i PLAN on starting soon.
thanks again rachel!!
