Chanukah gifties from Diana Gabaldon!

Look at what Diana sent me for Chanukah!

Chanukah gifts from Diana

The package was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday -- great timing, as last night was the first night of Chanukah. <g>  (Click on the picture for a better view.)

This is the second year in a row that Diana has sent me a package of dates from the Sphinx Date Ranch.  They're locally grown in Arizona, and they are delicious, as I found out last year!

The necklace is gorgeous -- a silver chain that almost looks white.  Very striking, and I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of it.

And the card reads, "Dear Karen, Have a wonderful time in Scotland this summer!  Diana"  I was so happy to see that.  (Our plans for the Scotland trip are coming along well so far, and we're all very excited about it.)

Thanks VERY much to Diana Gabaldon for these gifts, and Happy Chanukah, to all of you who are celebrating this week!

That's so nice, Karen! And the necklace is quite lovely. I've never eaten dates like that, but now I'm interested!

Happy Chanukah! :-)

The dates are very good. Click on the link above for more info about their products. The trick is not to gobble them up all at once, so I haven't opened the package yet. I'm saving that for tonight, when I will finally be on vacation! :-)

That's such a lovely gift. Don't eat them too fast. ;)

Aww, how sweet!
Is there anything you'd like from the frozen North?
Er, wait a second... it hasn't even snowed here yet! Can you believe it?
