What is the gift?

This mysterious triangle shaped package arrived for me the day before yesterday, with a return address in Nova Scotia. What is the gift? I am under strict orders NOT to open it up until July the 12th. Because on that day I will be:

a) an old nanny goat
b) 40 years young
c) eating birthday cake with Mike, my sister and my mom
d) all of the above

I know! Lordy Lordy and all that.

But what’s in the package? What IS IT??? Mike tells me he has no idea what it is, so I will just have to wait.

That’s okay, I’ve got lots of stuff to keep my mind off the package for the next few days. My mom and sister arrive tomorrow morning at 11:00 am and tonight I cleaned off the balcony. Interesting note: I found the start of a wasp’s nest in the patio umbrella. It was about the size of an acorn with a big wasp sitting on top. Sadly, I had to swat it off the umbrella and watched it tumble to the driveway below.

Sorry wasps, you just can’t live here with us.

    Carol, you make birthdays fun – even your own!! Can’t wait to see what the heck is in that package – probably not a Toblerone..it would have melted here in NS before they wrapped it. Hmmm, maybe it’s a build-it-yourself sailboat..lol

    A Ginormous Kite! Let’s go fly a kite, up to the highest hight. Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring, up to the atmosphere, up where the air is clear…

    (enough) That is so exciting.
