Received A Big Surprise Today!
That was me receiving a surprise today. (Yikes. It's a good thing I'm not surprised too often.) A package came from my friend Marguerite who lives in Eureka, California. I opened up the package and found this:
It was a beautiful tin box full of goodies to cheer me up and take my mind off what is happening with my parents. Wow! Is that a true friend or what?
I decided not to open everything up on the same day, because then I'd have lots of days of surprises. Good surprises, that is. This is one little box I opened up today:
It was hand decorated, and inside it are seashells and "pussy willow friends." How neat is that?! Did you ever have pussy willow friends? I did when I was a little kid growing up. I'd make pussy willows into mice, and then have lots of friends. (Being a kid is a lot more fun than being an adult.)
I had to look at at least one more surprise today, and this is it:
In case you don't know what it is, it is a "Moonlight Chronicles" zine. I have wanted a Moonlight Chronicles zine for several years, but have never ordered one. It seems like every time I thought to order one, Hobo, the name the writer goes by, was in Hawaii and not accepting orders. If you want to check out his web site, it is: http://moonlightchronicles.com/ Thank you, Marguerite. I finally have a Moonlight Chronicles zine!
Yep, thanks to Marguerite, today is a good day!
