It turns out that it was my Secret Santa gift for the Book Bloggers Holiday Swap! I didn’t do the swap last year, but I’ve enjoyed this book blogging community so much that I decided to join in the fun this year. When I sent in my gift requests, I felt a little bad because I didn’t want any books (what with having too many for comfort right now), and I know every book blogger loves to shop for books. But I did mention a variety of provisions that would make it even more pleasant to curl up with one of the books I already have. Well, my Santa came through!
As you can see in the photo, I got quite a nice supply of goodies. There’s a package of cat stickers, a cat calendar, enough tea to last for months, a book thong (ribbon bookmark), a pack of mini sticky notes, a very cool combination pen and bookmark with sticky notes attached, and quite possibly the softest, most comfy lounge socks ever. (Seriously, I am in love with the socks. They are infused with shea butter and have little non-skid bumpy things on the soles that actually massage my feet when I’m walking! I may never wear shoes again.)
And my cat Sophie wasn’t left out either. The jingling I heard when I picked up the package was part of an array of cat toys! So what did Sophie think?
Well, I think it’s safe to say that she approves! (I never could get a shot of her picking up the mouse by the tail.)
According to the enclosed card, these treasures all came from Wendy the Literary Feline at Musings of a Bookish Kitty. Thanks so much, Wendy! Sophie and I are enjoying the presents very much!
Bonus: A week after I got this great package, a box from Bas Bleu turned up on my doorstep, and it turned out that Wendy had also ordered a very nice Bookworm mug for me. So cute and a lovely extra surprise. Thanks again!
