A Coffee Moment

I am having a coffee moment...one of those moments 
when silence is golden and you just sit back and relax.

Do you know that feeling?



Even better, I received a package this morning from New Zealand.
For the fist time, I could not guess what it could possibly be.

I was so delighted to see a lovely note from my wonderful friend Lisa
who sent me best wishes for the 4th of July along with my favourite New Zealand 
chocolates and a book 'American Wife' by Curtis Sittenfeld .

She read it one recent wet stormy weekend 
(typical Auckland weather this time of year)
and thought I would enjoy it. How nice is that?

A big smile from me as I love hearing from friends and especially Lisa.

My day is made...

a coffee by my side

a box of chocolates close at hand

a great book

a quiet house

you must know what comes next......

if only :)

Hope you are having a wonderful day rain or shine!

  1. What a lovely friend! A surprise, a lovely note, a book and chocolates? she knows you so well! Enjoy them all!

  2. What a kind friend. I have read about the book on another blog I believe it is based loosely on the life of Laura Bush.

    To me a quiet moment is a cup of tea ( I don't drink coffee) and a biscuit in my conservatory looking out to our lovely garden and seeing the birds.

    Have a great day, Jackie in UK.
