Safe travels, Mary!
Late last night (or early early this morning), you boarded the plane and started your journey home. We hope it will be as smooth as your travel here seemed to be. We are still amazed at how gracefully you handled the transition(s) and were so thrilled you made the trip in the first place! Half a planet is no mean endeavor, so Mary, thank you again for coming. Yes, I made it home from the airport okay (I know you were worried I was too tired for driving so long past my bedtime). The lorikeets were squawking away in the airport trees at 11pm!
I wish we had thought to put the beautiful rocking chair you gave us in the kitchen instead of the living room, because both girls have been taking turns sitting in it almost non-stop since we moved it there last night.
The flowers you bought me will always make me smile and think of you. I hope that will help them escape the tyranny of my brown thumb.
You are missing yet another beautiful day, this one even warmer than yesterday. Stephanie is making the most of it in her traditional nackter popo style, only this time she donned the ladybug boots and selected a pair of Mama's panties to wear as a belt.
Life is good.
