look what we got! a package all the way from joyce of a perfect beginning in the usa. she had heard i was looking at pictures of all those pretty acorns and red leaves from the cold and dark places of the world. which made me miss home and 'real" fall. not like here, where we now have a heat wave of 25 degrees. in november. which is pretty ok after a week of rain and thunder, but still... i miss the cozy feeling of fall. and now we got it, nicely wrapped, with a lovely note and beautiful acorns with an acorn tray and red, golden leaves (that already found their way to my board). and it's warm and sunny outside. couldn't be better.
thank you so much, joyce. i am so thrilled and happy that you took the time to collect, dry and send these beautiful treasures my way.
we had a great birthday party yesterday. i didn't sort through the photos yet, so the update will have to wait. but i can tell you that it included a giant, orange dinosaur...
