#1 is a postcard from my friends who are in Italy. This didn't need opening so I read it first!! They are in San Gimignano, a little village in the hills above Florence. She is sitting at her window looking at Tuscan countryside: cypress, olive groves, vineyards all the Tuscan houses and she is drinking a glass of wine!!! Wow, how fantastic!!
#2 is a lovely card and little organza bag from Jade!! Thank you so much Jade!!! It would have been a little organza bag containing teabags!! Initially it appears the teabags passed Quarantine, but I expect Grant Bowler and the Border Security TV show wanted to flex their muscles and they confiscated my teabag and they want $42-50 or they will destroy it. So long Teabag!!! Instead, I am having a pot of Orange Pekoe tea with you Jade, sitting on the balcony with Harki and Peri, with a stack of new magazines to flick through!! Across the miles, we are having a cup of tea together: Cheers!!! I think you can even see the steam rising from the cup. I'd also like to note that it took my letter aeons longer then other people's to arrive. I am, of course 'overseas'!!! Thanks AP.......
#3 is a wondrous parcel from the inimitable Donni: 4 balls of Karabella Aurora 8 and the Backyard Leaves scarf is to be knitted!! I admired her knitting, it was so very green and beautifully patterned, and Donni has sent me the makings!!! Thank you Donni!! How cool is that???
So I am sitting here, drinking my tea, googling San Gimignano and fondling my wool...The Labradors have gone outside in disgust, they are being paid no attention!! Considering they ran down the hill to have a big Olympic style swim all by themselves today, it's a wonder I'm speaking to them at all!!!!!!.. I'm not going to say Life is Good, because that's tempting Fate, but Life is Reasonably Good today and you can't ask for more than that, can you?
