How To Make A Hot Mid-Summer Monday Very Special


Blog friends are the best and my friend Betty at at A glimpse into midlife is the Best of the Best. I came home from a long Monday at work to find this package from Betty, a total surprise. The package traveled well over 5000 miles from Paraguay to really brighten my day.



I was so excited to open it I almost forgot to take a picture of the package. Inside were a really beautiful Bamboo spatula, some very cute Paraguay magnets and the gift that keeps on giving, a box filled with spa items including soap, candles, a candle holder, a wash cloth and pumice stone.


There was also a very nice birthday greeting


Betty's is one of the first blogs I ever read . She became a good friend right away and has become a very special friend. She has even already sent a gift to my grandson due to be born in September.

Betty's birthday is coming up later this week. You will be doing yourself a favor if you go check out her blog and you will be doing me a favor if you go over and wish Betty a very happy birthday.
