WOW! Goodies galore.......

And on a more cheerful note.....

Because of an unexpected confluence of mail deliveries, I can overdose on goodies.

First, because of held mail (the trip for Dad's surgery and the Shabbat/Yom Kippur combo conflicting with our itsy bitsy apt. mailslot), I just got my chocolate swap box. {Of course, the delay means I can concentrate on enjoying the contents.......instead of fasting or a tense stomach from last week's worry!} Yum, yum, yum......

This is going to take a while to enjoy...... Ghirardelli chco. bars, choc. toffee almonds, an nice boxed assortment, and Trader Joe's Divine Duets. Wow! Wonderful!





















And then this was here, too....... almost too much. I thought about waiting until tomorrow to open the tea swap box, to give each box the attention it deserves!,




















but I only lasted about 45 minutes on that plan....... so much for the delayed gratification that Mum so often preached (grin).


tea, chocolate goodies (more!!!!!!), a beautiful tea ball with drip dish (I LOVE it!), a fun note pad and yarn -- nice Cascade - practical and great stash enhancement!

















The tea ball is a hit -- I'll get LOTS of use from this.......starting witht he cuppa I'm drinking right now........
