Today has been a perfect pajama day that included some crocheting, general tidying up and baking.
The kids made their own cookies that sort of turned out looking like blobs. They iced and ate them right away. I made big hearts, double hearts ...
and little hearts. Tomorrow I will be passing these out at school.
Yesterday I promised to tell the surprise of where I would be celebrating my birthday on the 26th. The 25th and 26th here are National and Liberation Days and, therefore, always a public holiday. I don't usually go anywhere because it gets a little crazy with parades, way too much traffic and individuals who think that spraying foam on anything or anyone that moves is a holiday sport. Definitely not my cup of tea. But speaking of tea -- the place we will be going is known for its tea, and before 1972 it was actually known as Ceylon. We will be travelling to another country. One we haven't been to before. Its major products are rice, tea, coconut and spices. Its capital city is Colombo.
In another providence called Kandy, we will get to visit an elephant orphanage and handicraft bazaar.
We've been talking about it for awhile and finally it is going to become reality. We are going to Sri Lanka and we are all so excited!
My friend Maria who moved to Lebanon sent a gift back to me with her husband who was visiting over the weekend.
An early birthday gift! Perfume and a handwritten note. Lovely!
I hope your day is full of sweet surprises!
Hugs & blessings, Tammy
