A Box of Smiles
Last week I was steeping some green tea the leaves in my coffee maker. Granted, this is the coffee maker I've had since college so it's pretty old. Well, now it's dead. When I pushed the "on" button, sparks flew out and as a result all the sockets in my kitchen were gone, except the one where the stove was plugged in. Thank goodness! Well, on yesterday, the electrician came over and fixed/replaced wires and sockets in my kitchen and fixed the bathroom. I didn't mention that the power was out on one wall - the one with the vanity lights and one socket. I was just glad to have it done even though I had to part with more cash. Don't you just love unexpected bills? *sigh*
But on the bright side, while he was fixing the electrical issues, I was in my craft room slowly opening a package that I received that very day. With every fold of the colorful tissue papers inside, I knew the electrician could hear my squeals of delight. I received African Rooibos tea (just recently discovered it and L-O-V-E it!), ginger candy (can't wait to try it), packages of sunflower and butterfly flower seeds (have wanted a butterfly garden for a while now), a journal (you all know I love to write), and a skein of variegated laceweight yarn (never worked with laceweight before). I was so surprised and it took the sting out of a long, hard day!
Thanks, Nichole! You rock!!!
