A Gift

I received an unexpected gift. It was waiting for me on the front doorstep right after I returned home from my Christmas Holiday, so I suppose one of my neighbors had accepted it from UPS and saved it for me. I have great neighbors!

I photographed the box next to an 8 1/2" x 11" envelope to put the size of the box in perspective.

Then I opened the cardboard box and found it filled to the brim with those little, cushiony air-bags. It was absolutely filled to the top. It looked empty but I really thought no one would send a present of air-bags, and I had not ordered anything.
....I dug down under the airbags, all the way to the bottom of the box....

....and found....

...the most sinful chocolates! It was only a small basket, about 4" x 5", holding a dozen Nirvana chocolates, but they were beautiful! These are hand made in the shapes of nuts, mushrooms, and such. A thin, chocolate shell with a rich, melt-in-the-mouth filling.

I limit myself to no more than one each day, but they are almost too pretty to eat.

Many thanks to my benefactor!
