silk wrapping

A Saturday afternoon wedding to attend. Desiring a gift wrap that was extraordinary for what I considered just an ordinary gift...but it was on her gift registry after all. All those yards of silk in my stash upstairs gave me an idea to create a lovely package, soft teal-blue moire silk tied with a champagne-colored satin ribbon.

Will she sigh when she sees it?
  I can not imagine the coffee grinder inside causing any sort of  great emotion unless she is in a dire need of a freshly ground cup of coffee at the moment.

:o). It's beautiful! I think I would re-wrap the emptied box and enjoy it a little longer. I know I truly appreciate my coffee grinder. Ahhh, the scent of freshly ground coffee.

It is so nice to grab a few minutes and catch up on the lovely occasions of your everyday.

Slowly composing a reply to your email in my head at present.

the 13th of October

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
