Can you imagine me, this morning, tapping on the floor, since 5.am, waiting for Henri, the postman ?
Can you imagine May Britt's giggles, teasing me (for 2 days, now !), about her package from Darlene ? The naughty girl didn't give any information about the contents, although she knew all about it ! And she kept teasing me, through funny e-mails !...
Can you imagine Darlene, teasing me about - what she called - "just a small package! Hee-Hee..." ?
Can you imagine DH, teasing me about paying a visit to DD1 today ?
("Are you crazy ?????").
I had an appointment at my doctor's >>>> postponed it !
I had an appointment at my pedicure's>>> postponed it !
Can you imagine me, sticked to my chair, behind the window ? (not even an earthquake or a tsunami... or a piece of chocolate cake, could have made me move !).
My good old lady neighbour, Simone (who knows everything about my quilting life) came in at 10.30 am ("just to keep you company, dear !"), and we sipped a whole pot of coffee - sticked to our chairs - no radio, just the "tic-tac-tic-tac" of the clock... Simone said quietly : "Enjoy !The waiting is part of the pleasure !"
Can you imagine, Henri the postman, happily driving his motorbike, whistleling, and shouting (for the whole neighbourhood) : It's heeere!
OMG ! What a joy ! I was like a child on Christmas Eve : 3 sets of delightful Moda charm squares, 3 yummy quilting magazines, Zig pens for my Journal Quilt project, and..... a surprise folder, full of.... (I can tease, too, you know !)
Henri : "Amazing Americans ! How generous !"
Simone : "How sweet ! How delicate !"
And me : in Heaven ! -THANKS, DARLENE, MY FRIEND !
Suddenly, Henri said proudly : "there's a cherry for the cake !"
And he gave me a nice cherry-red envelope, from Connie, with a lovely siggy block.... + a pigma pen, as she had read I would need it for my Journal Quilt project ! Now, isn't that sweet ? THANKS, CONNIE !
Simone : "Oooh, Mickey Mouse ! I love him !" (She's 86....)
Henri : "Amazing stamps ! Never such ones, before !"
Me : "It's a tribute to Gee's Band"
Henri : "What's that ???"
Me : "That's another story, go home !"... LOL
