Sorry for my absence from my blog and yours. We have been a very germy household. First my Pete and then I have had a yucky virus. For three days I just laid in my bed and read books (actually, that part was kind of enjoyable) with aches and pains and a head full of slime. Too disgusting to be near anyone but those unfortunate enough to have to live with me.
Some lovely things did happen during those groggy, hazy days.
It was mothers’ day and my children were very sweet and kind to me. We had a family dinner in celebration.
My Pete cleaned the whole house and did ALL of the washing. He really did – while I lay sleeping and reading.
On the day I was feeling a little better I walked outside to collect the mail and found this.
A tiny green frog sleeping on my letter box.
Once he had been carefully removed I found something even better inside the letter box.
Something sent from across the oceans.
Something beautifully scented and divinely packaged.
Gorgeous handmade soaps from the very clever and extremely productive Julia B.
I wish that you could smell them. They are beyond lovely.
Thank you for your generosity, Julia. Something is on its way to you too. I hope it arrives soon.
