I never know what's going to be on my desk each morning. Today was a basil plant.  The office politics around here are equally conducive to pranks or gifts. You just never know.

However, this morning was yet another treat. My friend Kathleen Johns had dropped off one of her incredibly healthy basil plants for me. She's a foo-foo Master Gardener and takes pity upon people like me who WISH we had a green thumb.

A few weeks ago, I told you about the mysterious cookie on my desk. There has been beer, burritos and blankets left there too. (Elle Fine once gave me a lovely purple down mini-comforter. Strange but awesome.)

Take a look around your office today and see who could use a pick-me-up. It doesn't take much but a small gift and a funny note can absolutely make a co-worker's day.

Thank you, Kathleen. Great way to start the day. -Michelle
