TODAY IS MY LUCKY DAY

As the title states, today is my lucky day.  I went to pick my granddaughter at the High School in town and I needed to buy some cat food for my 4 barn cats. I thought that I would buy some grocery for her, something that she would like for her  school lunch and some snacks. On our home we stopped at the mail box and as she opened the mail box I saw a big puffy golden envelope and I knew that it was from Lauren of Rug and Pugs.  You can see what the rug should look like on the left of my blog. For the new followers, if you click on Rugs and Pugs it will take you to Lauren' blog.

I was excited to open it and was in awe of her generosity. I never hooked with such wide wool and I'm looking forward to the challenge.  THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH  Lauren  for this opportunity of hooking with wide wool. I was amazed that there was also a large Joan Moshimer hook in the package. This is not a cheap give away. It has everything I need, lots of beautiful wool ready cut, even the binding. She even included a nice hand written note  on a "I need a Pug" note pad  and everything was wrapped in a nice green tissue paper reminding me of the St Patrick Day celebrations of  last week.  It's awesome.  I can't wait to find the time to start hooking my first primitive rug ever. The thing that I like about this give away is that there is no strings attached.  Such a thoughtful gift. Thanks again.


The hook is a perfect gift too because although I have three Joan Moshimer hook I didn't had a large hook like that.


Today I decided to transplant my bell peppers as they have been growing so fast and were getting their third leaves already. I planted them a bit deeper than they were in the first pots.  They will root on the stems anyway.

I love to start my own plants and avoid buying plants that are root bound.

This must be my lucky week too because on Monday I bought 2 tickets to our Credit Union  Annual General Meeting and banquet and I gave one ticket to my husband and I kept the other as they draw numbers for prizes. His number was called first and he won a hard cover journal in a beautiful  removable case and it just happens that my husband journal every day. I used to to that for year and now since I'm blogging I don't do it any more.  The second number called was mine. I won a blanket in with a carry on handle. Very soft fuzzy inside. Great to keep in the car.  I'll post  some pictures later as I'm running late.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit and thanks for leaving your comments.  JB
