I have been in a real funk for the last few months, I can’t quite put my finger on the reason why. My Dad’s health and my Mom’s neediness have certainly depleted my energy and also caused me to delay my much anticipated travel to France this summer. Lost my dear Aunt Tanis, someone hit my parked car and tore the bumper completely off, overwhelmed with all that I have to do at home. I have my health, some wonderful friends, and thank goodness, my Honey & Biscuit. I threw a party for 45 this weekend that was really fun but exhausting, but I have no time to be tired. Today I am back to my to do lists and filling orders and trying to make progress with the growing list of things I have to do for my parents’ personal affairs. In the midst of my preoccupation with all that I have to accomplish, one of my local blog readers, Linda, arrived at my booth in Corona del Mar with a really sweet little treat for me on Saturday~
She had stopped by last week just to say Hi, and I made sure she left with a few freebie net bags. And so one week later she arrived with this perfection of a little package~
A simple white paper bag folded at the top and double hole punched and tied up with a paper flower she made (on a mini clothespin) and some really fun ribbon she had made up~
this made me laugh…just what I needed~
Inside the paper bag, four of the most delicious chocolate cookies I have ever tasted…I ate half of one and my parents ate the rest in short order and pronounced them super fine~
I’m saving the flower and ribbon of course, they are now sitting on my desk as a reminder of the sweet little pick me up from Linda….many thanks to you Dear…now, it’s back to a little ironing and then off to ship some orders. Later today I will show you photos of the Saturday night party I styled and catered.
