I meant to come and post some knitting projects here... of the small and pinkish variety. Instead, a package showed up in my mailbox from Japan today and I came to show off my presents. Becca had a contest eleventy billion years ago (or maybe a few months) and said she'd send an honest to goodness Japanese prize to whomever guessed the next duty station she was going to with her husband. Remarkably, I won! :) She just left Japan last week and is safe at home in Chicago visiting family before heading off to England by herself to find them living quarters while he goes on a solo tour without her.
Becca sent me some gorgeous stationary, some Japanese treats that have my kids chomping at the bit to find out what they are, and a gorgeous Japanese teapot and cup set. Sadly, one of the cups didn't survive the long trip, but that's quite OK. They are adorable and my favorite color green! Thanks so much Becca. Enjoy your time at home. I don't know how you knew I was in need of some cheering up, but I have been and this was just the thing.
