Hmm, I haven't thought about "book reports" in a l-o-n-g time.
Remember book reports?? Usually, being the procrastinator I am, I'd wait until Sunday night, then have to try to write it out (this was B.C. - Before Computers) while trying to watch Ed Sullivan....
So, back to Great Expectations....
Fall. Conjures up walking through crunchy leaves....and Mother-in-Law's rich, creamy fudge...and bright colors...Mother-in-Law's RiCH cREamY FuDGe......(worth repeating..)
"Hmmmmm..." says Mr. B...(not me...insert MY sad face here....)
And surprises in the mail?? No, that's a new one. So when you get something, it's really great, because it exceeded all expectations!
Take yesterday. Came home from Weight Watchers (yes, I expected to loose..and I did.. 1 pound..making the total 18lbs.)
Saw a box on the table and upon closer inspections, it was for ME!!
Laurie and Chris from Miss Flower (http://miss-flower.blogspot.com/) had a contest to guess how many photos this wonderful-photo-taking-couple took on their latest adventure...and.............I WON!
I know how great their photos come out, and I multiplied that by the number of days, and subtracted the required "sleep-time", divided that by the number of not-so-perfect ones, then added the time of year.....anyway.............the point is.....I WON! My guess was 1398 and the actual amount was 1348...Wow - that was for 2 weeks! If you haven't see their works, head on over to their beautiful site.http://miss-flower.blogspot.com/
Here is the sweet photo, that I thought I'd get in a padded envelope..but noooooo..
...they sent it in a beautiful wood frame (made by Chris) added a darling card (that I love the image soo much) and Laurie put in not one but 2 of her darling "Bits and Pieces by Laurie"..
Thank you VERY MUCH Laurie and Chris!! I love it all :-)
Now go out there and have some Great Expectations of your own.....
