Yesterday was a practically perfect day. I picked up my mail before work and it had an imp I had ordered, my new Hold On To Your Horses
book by Sandra and an unexpected package of Glitter
on the forum. (Isn't that the definition of glitter? That you weren't expecting it?)
I get my mail first thing before work so all I could do then was read the postcard and wait for lunch break but it was such a warm fuzzy 'awww!' feeling. I went through the whole morning in kind of a rosy fog just waiting until I could look at it.
And then the package itself! There are two Tolkien ones and I'm going to frame the Hobbiton one and hang it some where in my new library as soon as I get it finished. I always thought Tolkien could write better than he could draw but there's something sweet and totally sentimental about the drawings he did do and I love them all. Hobbiton is possibly my favorite just because I always wanted to live there!
I've never seen this Erté print... and Erté One of my favorites! And this print is simply beautiful!
I was really tickled by the hot chocolate malt... I've never seen anything like it before and even if Emily gets it, I'm going to thieve a taste first! And tea! I love Earl Grey and there are two different kinds and I'm looking forward to trying the cinnamon tea because I do like cinnamon as well... plus I have just never seen teas in tiny boxes like this.
I've never tried the soap although it smells luscious or any of the imps (delight!) and the only one I have had time to test is Geek... which is a win on me :) I'm also tickled by the little velvet bag... My daughter has one because she has Hope and Faith (on hold until she's older and more responsible) and I've been tempted to get a second set just so I could have the little bag for me.
When it rolled around to time for my break, the girl who was supposed to be relieving me at 5 came in... and instead of a break I got to go home early! (more squee!)
I got home in time to call the doctor about Emily's skin weirdness (which we decided on the phone was ringworm... no visit needed) got the name of the medicine, including the generic name... I love my pediatrician!, and had time to go out and aquire not only it but everything else I intended to shop for this weekend. So now I don't have to go anywhere until Monday morning and can spend the time cleaning, packing up rollerballs and working on the library.
By the way... does anybody know what's up with the contraceptive sponges? They seem to have vanished from everybody's shelves again.
We got home in plenty of time for 80s to visit after work which was really fun. Next week we're planning on playing Jack or watching a movie or something since we haven't done either in quite awhile.
So now I have an entire day at home cleaning and playing... so it looks like this will be a Super Saturday! (Is that sad that a great day is one I get to spend working on my projects? Maybe I'm just getting old...) I'm planning on popcorn and a movie tonight while I'm doing some of the more sedentary projects... I haven't decided on a movie yet but I do still have Perfume
to watch after Emily goes to bed.
