Waiting at the top of the driveway was Lovella!
And she had a whole box of freshly baked muffins in hand!
Boy was I ever surprised!
I thought "Oh my gosh, it's Lovella...how did she get here? How does she even know where I live? Oh my gosh, I've got to get to work...but I want to hang out with her. Oh my gosh, she even baked us a bunch of muffins!"
Seriously, squint at the picture above and tell me if you don't think this girl looks like our favorite Mennomeno?
(That a Mennonite going through menopause, for those of you who don't speak Menno short hand....)
This lady walked right up to me like she knew exactly who I was. When she finally was at my car window, my brain finally settled down and I realized it wasn't actually Lovella after all.
She asked me if I wanted a muffin for breakfast and displayed a vast array of huge muffins wrapped up and tied with ribbon. I declined, stating that I had already had breakfast.
Thankfully my brain kicked into gear at that point, and I remembered there had been a sign by the elevator saying that everyone in the building would be treated to muffins and juice, as a thank you for being good tenants. (And I suppose for putting up with all the parking/asphalt issues. Yeah, a muffin definitely squares up the deal with a ten dollar parking fee, AND an $80 parking ticket. )
My brain suggested that a muffin would also be an excellent coffee break item for later on in the day.
I got a yummy poppy seed one, and enjoyed it greatly about two hours later.
Even so, I'll be that if Lovella had made it, it would have tasted even better.
I'm still trying to figure out what made me think it was Lovella.
Was it the hairstyle?
Or was it the fact that she was standing there displaying baking goods?
Hard to say.
Anyway, it was a fun and exciting few moments there, and a very interesting way to start the day.
