Today I got a package in the mail.
It was specially packaged in an insulated refrigerated box.
I did not recognize the return address.
Did I order something and forget? no.
Was it my birthday? no.
How about a box of chocolates? I opened the box to find the most beautiful little chocolates I have ever seen! They are perfectly formed, painted, and SHINY. And, of course, they were yummy. I know because I sat down and ate every one of them. I had them for lunch. Well, actually, I did share them.
Because they were "artisanal chocolates" I needed to taste each one, so we got a knife and carved each one into 4 tiny pieces. Then we had a "Chocolate Tasting". (My husband and my daughter should count themselves lucky that they happened to be at home when the box arrived!)
Oh, I forgot to tell you who sent them. Kansas City Star, my publisher sent them to celebrate the release of my book. (They were probably immensely relieved that it actually got done.)
Quilting and food go well together.
