Gnuman the Gnome arrives on my doorstep with assorted goodies
The Knitting Gnome Swap has begun! And, lucky me, I got the first gnomie visitor!! Thank you Rae for all the wonderful goodies and for choosing my name nomination (Gnuman) from the first gnome contest! I’m a little nervous that I won’t be able to show my new visitor a good time while he’s here. I’m scheduled for knee surgery this Thursday and will be laid up for at least a week so I won’t be very good company – boo-oo-oo! – (that is, unless he doesn’t mind watching Spongebob and eating Sour Patch Kids all day……) Plus, I got a little hungover on my trip out of town this weekend and poor R. Darling had to drive his queasy girl all the way home (5+ hours) from eastern WA. He’s such a saint! So, needless to say, Gnuman and I won’t be drinking any margaritas or dancing on any tables to Joan Jett tunes while he’s here. But he seems like a quiet kind of guy, so perhaps he’ll be content to meet our puppies, visit the waterfront and go out to dinner with us. I’ve only got 5 days with him though, so at least if I’m too boring, he’ll be on to his next stop soon enough.
