I have the day off, so I transferred photos from iPad to MacBook, that I might share a little of the joy the mailman brings. Okay, brought. When I opened the door after the doorbell rang, this sat on the front porch, all pretty and neat. It waited patiently at my feet.
I began from top to bottom but somehow I've messed up the order. This looks close to the beginning. Anna made a sunny yellow party hat! It has a veil. There are lovely, delicate, pink . . . Can you see?
No! This is the beginning. It says so. See? I have 50 photos to sort through. Sorry. It's as plain as day. She gave me a box of surprises for my birthday.
Another hat! I'd have let Alex wear it if I could. He's my best friend in our neighborhood. I've watched him play the pirate with a sword and cape.
Or maybe Robin Hood! I was so excited at this point.
I didn't know where to begin. So I sat in bed and had my way with all the goodness to start the day. After all, it was my birthday. Don't ask me why but I turned the box round and round. So looking in, things appear to be a little upside down. But it was my birthday.
The cutest little bear! Who knew he would reappear?
I seem to recall a card atop layer after layer . . .
I've made a messy muddle! The first card is from Poppy, the cat! If she were here she'd have worn a purple top hat!
Please forgive me, do. I must create proper order for you. This is too special for the mess I have made. I promise to return on another day. I assure you it's loads of fun. Won't you stay tuned and . . . Hmm. What rhymes with fun???
