R.A.O.K. it to me!

As I stated in my previous post, my uncle had passed away last Friday night. His funeral was held on Thursday morning. After spending the day with family and friends, I came home to find Minerva Wodd's owl waiting for me with a package.

It definitely brightened up a sad rainy day. Inside was a skein of Regia Cotton sock yarn in a very Weasley inspired color-way. There was also the pattern for The Weasley's Homestead socks.Topping it off were 3 Paint-By-Numbers kits, which I had originally thought were egg coloring kits. It took me a moment before I remembered Hermione B and I chatting about how much we loved Paint-by-Numbers kits!

Many thanks to Minerva for giving a happy ending to the day.

I love reading about the RAOK's that come at JUST the right time! I'm glad that it brought cheer to your day (Minerva actually told me what she was sending you, and I loved it!), though I am dreadfully sorry for the even that it was cheering you from. ((((((((((HUGS))))))))))

I'm so sorry for your loss. :( Although a ROAK at just the right time if I ever heard of one.
