Coffee Swap revealed... finally

FOUND IT! I found my camera-to-computer cord. So here is the amazing Coffee Swap package sent to me by Jenny! Thank you so much!!!

The box:

Home Sweet Georgia's Mocha Java, Jittery Joe's Colombian Supremo, and New Mexico Pinon Coffee. Plus Jenny knitted me a rose! I think the Jittery Joe's is my favourite, but they are all tasty!

A lovely mug from Starbucks, some Georgia Peach Peppermints, really pretty stitch markers (they are SOOO pretty!), and knitted-felted coasters. I especially loved Jenny's idea for the little round car-cup-coasters!

A mini travel mug, a very cool over-the-ear LED light (for night-time knitting/reading!), and possibly my favourite thing from the whole package: GRITS! Nora Mill Granary "Georgia Ice Cream" White Speckled Grits. And I've already used the LED light several times!

Some luscious Brooks Farm Primero Yarn, Pingouin Sock Yarn (coffee coloured, of course), a really cute coffee cup dishcloth (!) and the pattens for EVERYTHING Jenny knitted for me! I think the Brooks Farm may become another mini-Clapotis.

I'm such a lucky coffee pal! Thank you, Jenny, for putting so much effort into this and making up such a fantastic package for me! And don't worry... yours is on its way to you! I hope you like it just as much!

we are experiencing technical difficulties

Please stand by...

I received a fantastic package from my Coffee Swap Pal Jenny last week, but due to a collection of technical disturbances, I haven't been able to post it yet... But THANKS JENNY!!!!

Oh, and don't worry, I'm collecting the last few bits and pieces to put into your package... almost ready to send!

ETA: I was out of town for work, and for some reason the stupid computer I was using to access e-mail wouldn't let me into blogger even to leave this message! Then I tried to take photos and the stupid batteries in the stupid camera were dead. (because someone STUPID neglected to charge them, duh) Now the loot has been photographed, Blogger is again accessible... and the stupid cord that connects the stupid camera to the stupid computer is MIA. (again, because someone STUPID who is in the process of packing has STUPIDLY misplaced it) I have a good feeling about locating it tomorrow. But stick a fork in me, I'm done for the day. Garbage in, garbage out. Maybe tomorrow will be a "smart" day.

Mojo is a Monkey.

The Simpsons were right... especially if it's a monkey made of Koigu.

More soon...
