I Got Mail!!


Dear Ms. Robyn sent me a belated birthday package! Everything was wrapped in brown wrapping and tied with string and inside that wrapping was beautiful lavender wrapping. I had so much fun opening my gift! Robyn enclosed a vintage birthday greeting card and some yummy candy that I just had to sample! She sent me the most delightful peg bag made out of burlap! I love it! Thank you so much Ms.Robyn for the nice surprise, I love everything and you are such a sweetie!
I am one tired old lady this evening. My neighbor Fran and her daughter Vicki were out trying to trim the bushes in the yard. Fran is elderly and Vicki is recovering from a stroke so I went over to see what I could do. This was at 7:30 this morning and I didn't come home till 5:00 this afternoon. I used the electric hedge trimmer as far as I could reach on each bush, then I got the stepladder and cut the top of each bush with clippers. I am going back in the morning to help rake and clean up the mess I made with clippings. It was nice helping my neighbors and talking with them while working. Another neighbor came over and talked with me about religion and we didn't even argue about our beliefs. She gave me some articles to read and ask me if I found that they were untrue to please show her as she really wanted to know. I am going to try to read some tonight and the rest during the weekend when I have free time. We have different views on the book of revelations so it will be interesting to read what she thinks. Whatever our beliefs she is a nice neighbor to have. If I ever need anyone to milk Ms Diva she has volunteered. I just have to show her as she has never milked before! All in all I had a nice day, had many blessings, enjoyed friends and neighbors, enjoyed great conversations, and enjoyed all the beautiful birds flying around the birdfeeders. We saw 2 different types of woodpeckers, several bluejays, yellow finches, purple finches, cardinals and lots of robins. There was only 2 hummingbirds today. Looking forward to finishing the neighbors tomorrow morning and then got lots of outside work to get done here because it is suppose to rain and turn cool again on Sunday. Everyone have a wonderful weekend. Count your blessings no matter how small!

An shiny jewel has been added to your awaiting crown. What a sweet neighbor you are. I wish we all could be good neighbors like you and help one another. It used to be like that. Seems so many people work so much outside the home, there's no time for socializing and visiting and helping like we used to. Sad. Such a good person. Bet you sleep well tonight! Nighty night.

so glad that the parcel arrived. Did you enjoy the chocolate? that peg bag is actually quite old - an old lady gave it to me years ago and I thought it quite right for your homestead. Burlap, we call hessian here.
