No Time Like the Present

I got two awesome presents this week, not already mentioned in my birthday post:

1) From my brother Ben and his wife Nicki, I got a beautiful box from The Red Envelope. The present inside was wonderful too, but the box was seriously impressive. Inside were some hand made cast iron bells. Wind chimes. I have them hanging in the tree just off my deck right now. But I'd like to hang them just outside my kitchen window so I can listen to them in the spring and summer. I just need to find something to attach them to. In the meantime, when this horrid new snow melts, I'll listen to them tinkling in the tree.

2) From my wonderful, thoughtful husband, I got an unexpected bouquet of purple tulips. He knew that I had a bad day the other day, and so he brought me home some flowers to cheer me up. And they did. He is the kind of guy who will go out of his way to help someone if he knows they need it. I dont' generally complain to him. But I did let slip this time how discouraged I was feeling, and he made sure to help me feel better. He also called me in the middle of the day on Friday to see if he could bring me some lunch. What a sweetheart.

Great birthday gifts! Red Envelope is the best. I use them a ton for work and I like to order because they do such a great packaging job!

Wind chimes are on my list of favorite things. If there was such a list. But they don't work in Spanish Fork. The wind here would blow them right off the tree and down the street.
