I've been on the receiving end of a lot of sweetness lately. This is my last week of teaching Grade 8 French. We're doing exams this week and once I get them marked and the report card comments done, I'm finished! I came home from the last day of class and my sweet daughter Ashley had a little package ready for me - this card, a magazine, a DVD set of Corner Gas (Canadian comedy) and chocolate! I'm not really retiring - I just do lots of things for short periods of time!
A good friend, Karen, sent me this decorated candle. I love the music paper and the beaded wire detail. It looks so lovely burning on my kitchen windowsill. Tonight I moved it to the table to enjoy during dinner.

Ashley's gift was sweet indeed. She has your talent for presentation, too. What surprise to see the candle in your blog! The wire originally encircled the top of the candle jar, just under the lip. How like the postal service to rearrange it!
