I totally forgot to mention the second best part of Kendall's care package in the post below! She made me a "Turning Japanese" mix cd which has become my favorite music in the car and in the kitchen. Kendall has a sixth sense about mix cds - her "Two Ems" cd is still a regular for me. I love it! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
In other news, a big box of cocoa and peppermint sticks from everyone's favorite Maine retailer, L.L. of the Beans, arrived today! Thanks, G&P for the cozy gift - it has become drizzly and chilly here overnight, so this will be a treat.
