Cherry Brownie Hearts


Remember the story with the bad words? ( See The Cherimoya Smoothie post)  Well, M from that story, and his brother came over to measure windows and doors. They brought me a gift! A beautiful heart-shaped wooden box they made themselves, gosh! And tomorrow they’re gonna take me to San Pedro to see a beautiful landscape with many animals. They’ve seen bears there! We’re going from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m; so I better bring some food and Tiko’s backpack (the one M made.) Tiko and I can’t wait. That’s so nice. I think they’re probably really grateful, these 21- and 23- year old brothers, to have someone believe in their work. Their furniture is beautiful!
