...turns into HAPPY - SUNNY - FANTASTICALLY - WONDERFUL Monday! I thought I pulled the perfect surprise...only I was wrong.
I'm not sure if you remember THIS story I told last year. If you haven't already you've gotta read it before going on, start at the 3rd paragraph...I'll wait.
When you saw me knitting Anne Hanson's Bleeding Heart Stole, it was not for me. In Victorian flower language the Bleeding Heart flower means "Undying love & fidelity" I knew this stole was perfect!
I had been sworn to secrecy, so I couldn't tell you that this was my friend Sherry's WEDDING STOLE! She and my friend Bill were to get married tomorrow while on their trip out West...only they surprised me and were married today. I thought I had the perfect plan set, we wanted to be there with them when they married but understood completely why they planned things this way. However, I thought I had another surprise for them...I contacted the minister who was marrying them to ask if I mailed him a letter from Hubby and I if he would give it to them after pronouncing them "Husband & Wife". It all worked out perfect, they were very surprised, and then again so were we!
(I'm doing an endzone dance, shouting YESSSSS!!!)
Oh, we have a huge celebration planned, every year we have a gathering (I'm sure you remember last year, and me petting the Highland cattle?!) They will reveal to the rest of our friends about their nuptials...I'm special, cause I'm the one who introduced them...I've known for months now and have kept my mouth shut!!
And to think, this morning I was feeling SO blah...boy it ended MUCH better! I'm writing this so quickly I know I'm forgetting something...
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
