You've Got Mail

 Mail, at last.  It has been awhile since we have been able to say that in Canada.  The Postal Strike has ended and regular mail delivery resumed today. 

I came home for lunch and saw a stack of mail.  Sadly a lot of it consisted of bills.  (Go figure eh!)  That was one of the upsides of the strike.  No bills. 

We are lucky that it didn't drag on too much longer as it was really harming many smaller businesses.

Anyway, as I casually tossed aside the bills I uncovered a little gem.  A belated birthday card from sweet Lauren.   Check out the postmark.......
 It was stuck in the mail since May 27.    LOL   However, it was a fun little surprise.  Isn't it great when you get an unexpected surprise??   Thanks Lauren!

The next treat in the pile was special too....

 Awhile ago I won a giveaway from Teri over at White Sheep Farm.  There was a pretty card, a pile of 4 different wools and this

A Gift Certificate for $25 worth of wool from Wool-n-wares. 

Thanks Teri, I can't wait to spend my winnings. 

I loved all your comments on my last post.  I guess for now - rambling and unfocused it is!  You guys are the best.


  1. Horay for the happy surprises :)!
    Hope the bills weren't too bad :( !
    I can't imagine not getting mail for that long. Love the wool!

  2. Thanks for reminding me. I'm scared to go to the mail box. I usually get tons of mail for the farm every day and since the mail delivery stopped it's has lessen my load. lol.

    So nice to see you get nice surprises in the mail and more winnings.

    I hope that your week goes as smoothly as possible. Hugs. JB

  3. well the mail turn out pretty good. I did not comment to your last post ,I enjoy your blog I am the queen to TMI so I can give you no advice.

    You will LOVE the wool from Wool-n-Wares. I, too won some of the wool from Teri's give-away (lucky us!) and it is wonderful.
    Glad the mail is finally arriving - except for the bills!
    Pug hugs :)

  5. Wouldn't it be nice not to have bills.We get our mail up the street and so we can go a couple days with no mail. What a nice group of old mail. Birthday wishes and wool.What a treat. smiles Cheri

  6. Hope there was more "good" mail than "bad" mail. Yikes - as frustrated as I get with our postal service at times, I can't imagine what it would be like to not get my mail (and there be a real reason for it!!)

    Glad you got some happy stuff mixed in there!!

    Have a wonderful tomorrow!

    Smiles & Hugs ~

  7. Kim,

  8. Glad you got mail. But not the bill part-bah. Yeah to rambling and unfocused, although I don't think that your blog is and yeah to you keepin' on posting!

  9. Kim, your comment on my blog just cracked me up. I bursted out laughing out loud and it's a good thing that I swallowed my coffee before I read further.

    You're just so precious and I love you. Hugs. JB

  10. So glad you post is running again. I have wondered how long it would last.
    I love your little treats in the mail.
    Wow, a 25 dollar gift card that is awesome.
