1. Informed Delivery.( Sorry no picture of the website). Did you know you can go to the US Postal Service site and sign up for Informed Delivery? Every day you get an email telling you what to look for in the mail. Mail pieces and packages are tracked...magazines are not. My friend, Susan, shared this with me and I am loving it. Going out of town so often these days, it is good to keep tabs on what should be in your mailbox each day. One of my friends said she preferred to be surprised as she enjoys getting her mail each day and finding a surprise. Again I am sure this trait is relayed to a personality type....nosy or expectant?
WE finished the first season of The Crown and I can hardly wait for Season Two. I am bidding for a Dvd on Ebay. Hoping I get it as it is pretty pricy on Amazon. The acting and the stories are so interesting and as an Anglophile, I will watch this series again to see what I missed the first time through. I tend to fall asleep watching tv late in the evening.
3. Giannios Candy is my mother's favorite treat. This is the candy that I found at the Mennonite grocery store in Falkville, Alabama. It is delicious and the whole family now likes this great brand.
Peanut Clusters are our favorite. Caramel and peanuts..yum. Rather like a Snickers on Steroids. You can find this company that has been around since 1910 on Facebook. Like their page and see all their goodies. I did note that if you order from their site they do not mail in the summer due to the heat.
4. This is my new birthday gift to myself.
I like using project bags to keep my cross stitch projects organinized and free from dust and dirt. One stitcher I know related how she had left her stitching sitting on a chair at home and a person who shall not be named spilled Sweet Tea on the sampler. She was able to save it by adding more distressing to it. She says it just makes it look like an old sampler instead of a new one. She learned her lesson about putting away stitching when you are not working on the piece
5. Ben and Katy treated me to Norwex cloths for my Birthday and Mothers Day.
I had been wanting to try this brand for some time but never found a rep who sold them in my area. I look forward to trying out these microfiber cloths that work with just water! I will report back on how they worked for me here in Nanaland. I have heard many raves about their effectiveness.
