I’m having a great day, despite being exhausted from not sleeping well last night.
Yesterday the Hubby and I spent the day together and did some cross-border shopping in New York (state, not City). Didn’t buy much, but it was very nice to wander around and spend the time together.
When we got home, I found a lovely package in the mail from my Kiwi Soul Sister, Broot! What a sweetheart my friend is :) I had mentioned to her how much I loved her little origami dragons that she makes, and she said she’d send me one!
He arrived today with a lovely card, a couple packages of NZ themed stickers, and a fabulous story about the legend of Mauao. New Zealand history and folk lore is really fascinating!
Broot (of course I named him Broot!) immediately hopped up on my laptop keyboard, and because I use a usb keyboard instead, he has made it his permanent home. I think he looks rather good there, and he will be a wonderful daily reminder of my lovely friend so far away in NZ. Thanks Broot!!
Also, today is, of course, J-B’s big day – I’ve left him a note on our Brain Fart website, here… – please drop by and wish him a happy birthday, won’t you? He’s not a blogger as much as I’ve prodded him to share his wonderful stories, and he participates in our Haiku only to make me happy, (so he won’t be coming to visit, in other words) but he’s one of my best friends and I love him dearly!
Have a great day, everyone! See you tomorrow for a Freestyle Sensational Haiku Wednesday!
