A package from Australia came at the end of last week and inside was a wrapped gift for Caroline and a note from Little Mysteries. When Sherry and the family came to visit on Sunday, the gift was opened and the Owlie pronounced "Precious." Sherry was delighted and Caroline even gazed on it for a bit.
Thank you, dear faraway friend!
I've been coming to work an hour early this week because I want to leave early on Friday. Bonnie and I and our collective three daughters and one nursing infant have rented a beach house for the weekend. We do this together every couple of years -- female bonding and frivolity abound. We play games, shop a bit, eat good food, and are impressive in our silliness. We were tickled to learn that an annual event will be occurring this weekend while we are at the beach -- sounds like it is right up our alley!
Do return on Monday for an update!
