which has been basically the highlight of my week pretty much. Ross Poldark has this unruly hair, and he came home to Cornwall from the French and Indian War with all kinds of non-gentry ideas. And then there's Demelsa! Oh my!! I'm always on the prowl for a good series to fritter away my life behind, so this totally fits the bill.
Then this arrived ordered by a student, Bear! This wrapping speaks volumes about China--volumes.
I won't torment you about the contents--it was 20 of these!! Coolie hats! Rice paddy hats! Peasant hats!! This class came en masse on Wednesday for their oral English time. Happy to model hats! That's how we took attendance! 20 students enrolled--20 hats.
So instead of hip reconstruction in Singapore and my days in China ending abruptly (which is what my imagination was dictating in the wee hours of the morning before I went to the hospital), I am slowly on the mend AND anticipating the arrival of American family guests tomorrow!! And for those things I am trembly grateful.
