SWEETNESS IN THE MAIL
My little girl bird and I were sitting
in the living room this morning
before she headed down to the cafe
for her last day
at the OC gig
and only two days before she leaves this mother bird
trying not to think about that
and the knock came at the door
and she says "packages!"
Yes, a package from a darling friend in
my Marie Antoinette Mail Art group
who has been spending hours preparing
for her boys to come home
decorating her beautiful home
and making candy
and in the middle of that
she stopped and sent out
this glorious box of treats to me
Now, I will confess, there was more candy
before I took this photo
but little bird and I paid no attention
to the fact that it was still morning
and we dived in
"ohhhhhhhhing" and "ahhhhhhhhhing"
over the amazing toffee
and peanut brittle
and chocolate dipped pretzel sticks
Yes, we were eating candy in the morning!!!!
Included, was this beautiful journal that Terri made
which was her thoughtful way of replacing one I had purchased from her
etsy shop HERE
and had a hard time parting with due to it's beauty.
I am quite lucky
Thank you, Terri xo
Another MAMA friend
sent me a package
last week that was such a lovely surprise...
on the very top was this Holiday issue of Somerset
which I had contemplated picking up a little while ago,
but never did
and now I am savoring every page
along with some fuzzy house socks and
(cannot photograph them because they are already being used!!!!)
and the thoughtfulness of these two friends
that I have made through the lovely group
leave me feeling so grateful for friendships
old and new.
and now as I look again at the delight
of toffee and chocolate pretzels....
I wonder when I am going to stop
the sugar crazies I began
when I opened my delicious birthday cake...
ABOUT 5 WEEKS AGO?!!!
Oh, heck, everyone knows
you don't deal with that issue until January!!!
