Today was a bit like Christmas

I've been home for two days now with a stomach bug, which has kind of sucked. I've been too sick to do any serious knitting too, which sucks even more. But today when Thomas came home from work, he had some packages with him, for me. That's why today was a bit like Christmas all over again! The first package, that had come through the mail, contained these goodies:

One square project bag from RoseKnit's:

And note the gorgeous inner lining too :)

And one drawstring project bag, also from RoseKnit's (and unfortunately, blogger insists on turning this pic the wrong side...):

Aren't they adorable?! I splurged a bit on myself this month and finally got around to order them for myself. I just love her hand-sewn stuff, and these two bags are just super-cute. Hopefully I'll get myself a nice job soon, so I can afford to order more of them!

Well, Thomas had also visited our local comics-supplier, and boy had we neglected that store for far too long! He came home with 13 comic books all together! So now I really have something to do for a couple of days! 

I think I've talked a bit before of how much I love the Sandman comics, by Neil Gaiman, and I've recently finished the Preacher comics too. But I've been following the Dark Tower comics that are based on the Stephen King books for a while too, as well as The Stand comics (which of course are also based on the SK book), so most of the comics were these two kinds. There is also a new SK comics out now, based on The Talisman that he wrote together with Peter Straub, but unfortunately those were sold out, so I'll have to wait until they come out in a collection book this summer. The Talisman is one of my all time favourite books by SK, so that should be very fun!

The comic book that is at the front of the photo is issue 11 of The Walking Dead, by Kirkman, Adlard and Rathburn. And boy, are those amazing! I loove a good zombie story, and this story is really one of the very best. It's all in black and white, which just adds to the mood, and it is just a really good read. I warmly recommend it to those of you who like a good horror comics :)

Now I'm going to lay back on the couch and read some comics, and maybe drink some rosehip soup (I don't really know what to call that in english, it's sort of a viscous soup made from the little rosehip fruit and tastes amazing) and hope that my stomach wants to keep it. I've eaten two pieces of bread for the past two days, so my body could use the nourishment...

Feel better!

Those bags are gorgeous.

And yes, Neil Gaiman is a genius. I've read all his books, but never picked up one of his graphic novels.

Holy Crap! Have we talked about The Preacher before? it's the only comic book I have EVER gotten in to and I can't find any of the comics after I moved away from my friend who had them! It was a GREAT series!
