Whew, finally Olga aka Lady #67 made it to her destination. We were worried! Olga lives in Brazil and to be honest, Brazil doesn't have the best postal system. I've had issues with Brazil before so Olga decided to pay extra for priority shipping (to the tune of $41) which made the trip from the US to her home only 3 1/2 weeks rather than 3-6 months as I have seen in the past. During that time though, she and I have become very good friends, so that was a plus for both of us! Enjoy yourself, Olga! It was a ball working with you! I also posted the original photo of the "real" Olga for you to see.
Some of you might be astute enough to note that I have not yet posted Lady #66. She, my friends, is a gift and will be revealed the end of April.
Naturally, I sent out fun envelopes to my little ones this week:
Did you recognize that last one? I copied one of my mug rugs from years ago. Audrey went to a real live "tea" with her parents this past week during her spring break, so I HAD to celebrate the occasion!
Then, I spent my marvelous birthday Amazon gift cards on books. Can you believe? (You should see my unread stack now……I need to stop buying and take a good speed reading course, I think.) Sad that I can shop faster than I can read!
This week I finished:
"Paris Letters" by Janice MacLeod
"The Husband's Secret" by Liane Moriarty
"The Life List" by Lori Nelson Spielman
And started "The Storyteller" by Jodi Picoult this morning. Out of the 3 from last week, "Paris Letters" was, by far, the best. It was light and fun and made me smile! Besides, that, no book has ever made me want to learn french before. lol
So, my friends, that's another week down the tubes. I hear that spring is right around the corner, but you couldn't tell that by our weather this morning. It's snowing outside right now (again…ugh!) So, take care….until next week (when I will have some sewing to show you…..if you can believe?)
