Today I sent off the last box of cookies for Giles this term. He'll be home from college in a week for spring break, then back for one more ten-week term. He's worked a lot harder this term and produced some really beautiful black and white photos.
I've started using thrifted sewing patterns as packing materials for my weekly boxes. I look for ones on the ten cent table, preferring uncut patterns, and of course never destroying a pattern that is cute in any way. The big sheets of tissue are so pleasing with their soft buff color and their iconic graphics.
