Then, I got two, totally-unbelievable surprises!
First, is a handmade pocket square for Patrick's winter formal parties. It is embroidered and painted by an artist in Hong Kong. I can't wait to wear it next year.
I got a nice hug from Vivi, who enjoys her tiny backpack and gap-toothed card! :)
The second amazing surprise is that, somehow, I got the last case of Seville oranges for my marmalade adventure!
If you've been following along, Seville oranges are bitter, sour, foul, seedy, tough, irritable, little gems. Since marmalades have to have high acid content and high sugar, Seville oranges cut through the high sugar. The result is a much more complex marmalade. However, they are not pretty!
