I was in Basel early this morning to have my hair cut and run a few errands. When I got home shortly after noon, OrangeX was already halfway done with the "swiffering" of the floors. We decided however to postpone any further cleaning activities until we had done the groceries and gotten rid of the mountains of packaging material that was still filling our basement. By the time we got back home, it was about 3:30 pm and I noticed that I still hadn't taken in the mail. So I grabbed my key to the mailbox and what do I find?! A yellow padded envelope from our blogger friend Michael in US! All of a sudden, I remembered this other post he wrote just this week.
And look at what was inside:
Not one, but two retractable lighter holders (one's for OrangeX), a lovely sealed little envelope with card inside and a page from a small calendar with a quote from C.S. Lewis saying: "Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like arts... it has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that gives value to survival."Isn't that sweet?!? Anyway, Michael: Thank you, and the boys, and of course Flo for the lovely gifts. I assure you that I am now literally "hooked" to it (or, it to me??)
We're off for some dinner at an Australian restaurant nearby with OrangeX and my 16 year old godson!
More to follow soon.
