Let us be grateful to people who make us happy,
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

The Wayward Brothers Come Home
During an extreme cold weather snap in the midst of winter, the Danbo Brothers mysteriously vanished after I sent them off on an emergency mission to replenish my chocolate supply (see my previous post: The Wayward Brothers). Many weeks have passed since they set out on their assignment and some believed I would never see them again. But, just as I always knew they would, the Danbo Brothers have returned!
Early Morning Sunshine
I discovered The Brothers early this morning. Still drowsy and cozily snuggled in my bed, the sweet sound of their familiar laughter nudged its way into my consciousness, rousing me from my slumber. I stumbled out of bed and bounded into the kitchen where I found them happily unpacking loads of brightly coloured beach umbrellas and, as usual, wearing their sunny dispositions. Little Danbo smelled faintly of coconut oil, pineapple and plumeria blossoms. Big Danbo sported raccoon eyes and a rather fresh-looking sunburn, apparently having underestimated the strength of the tropical sun (unlike Little Danbo, who was wise enough to slather on a total sunblock). Despite the length of their sojourn, they didn’t forget my chocolate order and managed to bring me back a decent amount of chocolate, though all of it contained macadamia nuts. They gave me the remaining change from the chocolate purchase and we all had a good laugh.
I welcomed them back with open arms—who could blame them? Taking off for a mid-winter tropical vacation is what we all wished we could do during that cold snap. I’m so happy to have them back home again. Today, we shall all celebrate!
