Birthday Surprises 2012

Last week I received a package in the mail all the way across the Atlantic Ocean from the country of Spain.  For a day or two I didn't realize that the package was even mine because my mother had turned it upside down and placed it on the table where we usually place my dad's mail.  I thought, I wonder what he ordered that would come in a green earth-friendly box with Spanish writing all over it.  Perhaps he ordered some kind of health products?  Finally I asked my mom and she says, "Oh yes, that package is yours!"  I immediately knew who it was from.  And although I was super excited, I made myself wait to open it until I felt a little better so that I could truly enjoy opening the box.  And that's what I did.  I waited until the weekend and I was pleasantly surprised and happy.  Thank you so much to my dear sister friend all the way from the beautiful country of Spain.  LYLAS!

cookies, tea, and a t-shirt from her city

p.s.  Today is the first day since I've been sick that I'm beginning to feel like myself again.  I have been doing absolutely nothing - not crocheting, not reading, not moving, nothing.  Maybe all the sleep and soup and medicine is actually kicking in.  Maybe it means I can taste one of these cookies.  :-)


I may be linked up to the following parties:


  1. Aw, I hope you feel 100% soon!
