The Owl Landed!

I sent off my owl to Opehlia Hopkirk last Friday and received a wonderful email back saying that she received the owl and absolutely loved her parcel. I'll post photos of what I sent in a bit.

In the muggle world, I've been studying for the CPA exam. The review class started last week and I've been buried in my books as well as my computer.

Knee Deep

In homework that is. I haven't had the time to tell about my visit to Hogsmeade. However, I have made delightful progress on my bag. It's just about done, a couple of drops and it will be complete. Drops of what you ask? Shh! It's a secret and staying that way.
