mail for the mailman?
I think my mailman deserves a thank-you card for today's postal delivery. I received the confirmation for my course (hooray!), a book of herbal charts from an eBay win, and this lovely magnetic bookmark from Dianne!

Today was a day filled with 1001 different things. It was Max's last day of school, and a half-day at that, so in the morning I ran around trying to find a suitable end-of-year gift for his teacher (no chance to cross stitch a gift for her this year), getting my hair cut, finding the mini cassettes required by my mini Sony recorder, etcetera, etcetera. After Max came home and left again, to go to his biological father's, I went to work. And after work there were more errands. It was a very interesting day, but I'm pretty tired tonight. Thankfully, the weather is cooler and we will hopefully have a solid night's sleep.

Mom, my haircut looks pretty good, but it's just a shock how dark my hair has become! I've gone from blonde to light-auburn-brown, to nearly black!

Karen, I did manage to post Country! Hooray!

Dianne, thank you so much for your thoughtful gift. As I said in my earlier email, it's nearly too pretty to use!

Carol and Patti, we'll be meeting in about 2 weeks' time! WOW!

Wishing you all a joy-filled weekend!

PS: I changed my template slightly because I wasn't quite comfortable with my "stolen" picture, so this is the lavender that grows in front of our house.

    Great news about the formal acceptance it always seems so definite then doesn't it. You sound as though you are getting all excited (and no wonder) about the holiday, and I love your bookmark its so pretty.

    More changes! I really like that the lavendar pic is of your own plants. :)
    I wish I could fly to the NE to meet with you and the others while you are on this side of the pond! I know you're going to have a fabulous time and I hope it's restful for you too.
