The Herbal

Today was a perfectly normal day.

I moved along my usual course of business throughout the day, stopped at the office, put out a couple of fires, ran some errands and finally arrived back home.

Absolutely nothing prepared me for what was to come next.  I should have had an idea that something was up, my DH had a hint of a grin hovering about his mouth from the moment I walked in the door.

A Package!A package was sitting quietly on one of the tavern tables, just waiting for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Slowly, I started to open it, savoring the moment.

The anticipation rose, each item more enticing than the last~

 

A sweet note from the past, properly sealed…

No words can express my excitement as I opened this delicious package… from quill to sealing wax, proper wrapping and accoutrement… just PERFECT.

 

 

 

 

 

A PERFECT PACKAGE.

 

BUT, it gets better.

 

 

 

 

 

and BETTER

and B E T T E R ! ! !

 

 

 

 

A true work of art, in every way…

I’m feeling very stingy right at this moment, but I’ll share a few glimpses with you…

 

 

 

 

and a few more…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I leave you tonight to go spend time with my new treasure, made by a master at his trade.  I thank you, Master McClintock, for your fine work!  This Herbal will be treasured
