I have been getting gifts. Yay for birthdays. In addition to some marvelous knitting books (I can hardly describe the joy I've had reading these of late), I have received a lovely Yixing purple clay tea pot and teacups from my cousin Alice. They are so stylish, and the green tea that came with (rose silver needle!!!) the teaset is so fragrant and fabulous too.
Equally delightful--fancy chocolates from Paris. Ganache, you are so rich and tasty. You are so OOH LA LA and nearly gone. It wasn't me gorging. Can you believe it was DH? Yes, he ate most of it. He says he was doing it to help me out since I'm still nursing and the baby is sensitive to chocolate. Sure.
