Tip-toe through the tulips

Martha came over on Sunday and brought me these tulips, among other goodies. We had two different types of Just West of Rome teas, the second one of which tasted very strange and was called St. Michael's Dragon Well tea, and Ireland's answer to the bagel chip -- Hurley's Boston Irish chips, dotted with luscious-tasting cranberries. Consider me totally their slave.
Martha is multi-talented. She drew me a pattern and instructions for a bag I want to make for myself. Just like that. Just by looking at a photograph. Thank you, Martha XOXOXOXO

Right now, as I marvel at the gloriously sunny day out there, I'm waiting for the concierge to get back from lunch so I can pick up a surprise package that just arrived from my sister. Hurry up and finish your lunch Mister.
