I don't shed tears often

...or easily, but this morning they were flowing. First a lovely, generous and unexpected phone call. The kind of call that sticks in your heart. I was still thinking about it some time later as I mindlessly clicked on my rss feed. It was then that I saw the title of Lemon Hound's new post: Shawna Lemay reads Brenda Schmidt. I couldn't believe my eyes. What a wonderful surprise! Lovely, generous and unexpected. I am grateful to Lemon Hound and I am grateful to Shawna Lemay for the close, sensitive reading of my work.

Lovely indeed. (I'm looking for my kayak, in case you keep shedding.)

It is lovely! I just got back from the Orange Toad where I celebrated with an apple cinnamon scone. I was going to have cake, but all they had left was matrimonial cake and that just didn't seem right. Who wants to get dates stuck in their teeth on such a wonderful day?

Thanks, Evie!

H bought some chocolate for the occasion, so I just had that too. :)
