Lunch with Christi yesterday--and she liked her Christmas gift!
My sister-in-law joining up at LJ and joining my Triune books community. *hugs* So wonderful to have her aboard and not have to be sending her .pdf's of my stories and wondering what to do about the illustrations!
The internet--specifically in the form of the Moon Calendar site. It means I can work out the lunar calendar for the events of 'Nothing Gold Can Stay'...which, in relation to the semi-arbitrary year I chose to base Hu-Hua's Cry on, is equivalent to 1553 AD. So nice to have a resource like that!
At the candle place at the Megamall, I got her a candleholder--rather like a broad vase--that big green glass vase you have/had. Except hers is clear glass with crackling and then poinsettas painted on it in red and green glass paint so it will look very pretty with a candle in it or other stuff. Not the easiest to describe, but it has a real Christmasy feel to it.
