I’m Back!

Posted on August 27th, 2012 in Stories


I’m back!



After a week with my favorite in-laws at the beach, I’m rested and raring to go! 


After flying in, Ben went to check the mail while I was cleaning the house.  ”You got a box!” he bellowed.

“Ok, I’ll look at it later!”  When one is elbow deep in toilet cleaning, one does not want to risk marring a box.

Ben, however, didn’t have that problem.  Ten minutes later, I walked by his office to see this face.




And this.


Much to my delighted surprise, my blogging buddy Amanda Cobb had sent me a sussy from Krysten’s Blogger Besties Swap!


In her sweet card, Amanda wrote she tried to find whimsical things for me.  My new little dragon agrees.  He’s demanding a name, but has vetoed all my suggestions.  Apparently, Sparkly isn’t a proper name for a dragon.


This glorious book and earrings…

A field notes book Ben ran off with (hence the maniacal grin) and this darling scarf that Bear ran off with (and I rescued after he rolled on it a time or two.)  Don’t worry, Amanda.  It’s safe out of his reach.


It was the perfect way to return to reality.  Now I can’t wait to find fabulous goodies to send Amanda….  Maybe I can even deliver them in person.  After all, she lives in my hometown only an hour away….


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  We have a new Bitty’s Book Club Tuesday and the end of Wings Wednesday!

    It’s nice coming home to a suprise! I’m waiting for a package, but my package isn’t as exciting.. it’s software that I need for a class that I’ll be taking. I guess it’s exciting that I’m going back to school, though!

    :) Jen

    Ooooh, love all the swag you got! :-) I wasn’t able to leave you a comment on your other blog this morning – said I had to be logged into WordPress to do it and I don’t have that account. I am so glad you had a great time with your family and especially your madre. :-)

    Ha! If that scarf were a bit smaller/shorter it could be a cute neckerchief for the little guy. :) Glad you liked everything, and looking forward to seeing what you name the dragon!
