When I joked about my readers sending me a gift of Malabrigo for my birthday, I never thought anyone would take me up on it.

But there were a couple of you who wrote to me and requested my address.

Talk about the kindness of knitters.

I received a package from Sandra yesterday that not only contained Malabrigo, but chocolate, chocolate scented soap, and a chocolate scented candle.

She also sent me this CD:

I'd never heard of her -or any African Jazz- before receiving this CD. But I'm glad that Sandra has introduced me to her. With a voice as smooth and rich as that chocolate she sent, I'm sure that this CD will get much play. I'm really excited about sharing this with my Snookums, since he really likes jazz. (You can listen to samples of Somi's music here.)

Sandra, you don't know what this means to me. People like you restore my faith in human kindness.
