This arrived in the mail yesterday. Beautiful! I especially loved the pictures of Mary Jane's Farm. Phyllis Hoffman is obviously making every attempt to make the new Victoria as beautiful as the old. However, is it just me or do others dislike the new flimsy paper so many magazines are being printed on these days?
I awoke this morning hardly able to talk and my voice is still raspy. This "allergy thing" continues and I expect the wet weather isn't helping. After running a quick errand this morning, I sent my husband on his way to continue other errands alone. I had to wash some dishes and do a couple loads of laundry before ending up on the sofa but it certainly felt good when my head hit the pillow. This stuff is yucky.
I received a lovely letter from a dear friend in New Mexico today, who described the dust storms they were experiencing. Kinda' made the rain seem not so bad. She has two rattlesnakes in her yard which they still can't locate to kill... makes the thought of Bigfoot in the forest not too bad, either. The last time she called, she talked about finding a black widow spider that week. I told her I'll take my chances with the wasps on the deck. You couldn't pay me to live in the New Mexican desert.
I'll chat more about books read and tea sipped soon. Also all about Christopher's move into town as he has begun a calculus class at the University.
My mini vacation will start when hubby leaves for North Carolina. I hope I'm feeling better by then. :)
