We have a guest/helper staying with us right now – I’ll talk more about Katie in another post – and she brought some unusual gifts. Some of the items in her bag were things Allen specifically requested, including a few pairs of water shoes (because working in the river is taking a toll on his sneakers), and some small replacement parts for the front end loader.
The other items were things we hadn’t specifically requested. They were chosen for us by Katie’s mom, who reads my blog. She sent:
several pounds of butter
some bags of bulgar and barley
some boxes of potato dumpling mix and spaetzle mix
Do any of you read the blog carefully enough (and remember well enough) to know why Katie’s creative and thoughtful mom sent these particular items?
