It's probably no surprise to you, but I am SO OVER WINTER WEATHER!!! If it never gets cold and snows again in my lifetime it will be too soon. I'm even considering moving to a warmer climate. Then again, I always threaten to do that around this time of year, and that's about as far as it goes. Spring, Summer and Fall in Virginia are just too beautiful to miss!
Last week I received two packages in the mail. The first came from Grandma J. She had a give-away recently, and sent all of us Abba Zaba bars. As a child, I prided myself in knowing my way around the candy aisle, but I had never heard of these little goodies! I must say that they are tasty! I must also say that my dentist will soon be sending Grandma J a little Thank You note;)
The second package arrived three days later. It was from Daryl, who recently cleaned out her mother's things, and didn't know what to do with the items neither she nor her sister wished to keep. She posted the items that needed good homes, and this beautiful little bone china bouquet called out to me. It wanted to sit on my kitchen window ledge. It's now happy and settled into its new home, and it brightens my day each time I look at it!
I fought a nasty cold last week, and even took a RARE sick day from work. Once these gifts arrived, my cold seemed to ease and the weather took a turn for the better. Coincidence? I think not! Thanks to my fabulous friends for the wonderful surprises, and for turning my week around!!! Can't wait to see both of you in July:)
