Isn't it nice when dinner guests bring hostess gifts? It's not necessary, of course, but it's always very much appreciated. Our friend Susan brought us a bright bunch of tulips yesterday, and they look beautiful by our sunny picture window. I arranged most of them in a heavy rectangular vase with river rocks at the bottom, and snipped off a couple of pale yellow blooms for the bedroom, too.
PS--the carrot cake cookies were a big success. If you're a fan of carrot cake, I'd highly recommend them!
