Well...I didn't get to go to Rhinebeck this year. :( But the FedEx man did bring a pretty cool package. :)
It came from Colorado.
Since FedEx has officially declared my little town "The Stix," priority overnight can mosey on over any time before 4:00 instead of the usual 10:30. So by afternoon, I was anxiously awaiting my package, and went running downstairs when I saw the truck from the window. I think the FedEx guy may have been a little taken aback.
I stared at for a long time. And then I went back to work. Somehow, I didn't want to open it.
I started to open it. I put it down.
But then the guys gathered around and the opening began in earnest.
It was wrapped in cool paper.
The advance copy of my book!
There was a lovely note inside.
I stared at it for a long time.
And then I opened it!
I thumbed through it and checked out a few of my photos that had been included (very exciting!).
It was surreal.
It seems so long since I worked on it: a very strange feeling!
The verdict? I love it!!!
