My friend Pegg loves me… well cares at any rate. On Thursday DH came home with a box that I wasn’t expecting, didn’t know was coming and it was a total surprise.
What was you ask… a CARE PACKAGE full of wonderful small things. It’s the only care package we’ve received since leaving the States that I didn’t specifically request the items.
See Pegg has lived overseas also…. and she raised her family overseas as well, so she knows what is missed. The goodies are great and lets just say the Snicker’s Nutcrackers didn’t last long past dinner!!!
While we can get things that look the same they don’t taste the same and sometimes don’t even come close to home. So all these things are most welcomed because they are from HOME.
Can’t wait to make some toast with the peanut butter on it, well and Peanut Butter cookies sound good too. The Chocolate Chips are destined for a pan of Blondies, DH’s favorite homemade cookie. Of course the dogs have been bugging me for a rawhide treats…. and thye will remain treats given out on special occasions The Wet Ones would have been particularly wonderful on our trip to Kruger. I tried to find a car size pack… but nope not here. Lets not leave out the sponges, all of them are so needed. I am going to learn to make the balloon animals and take them to the next ‘family Embassy party’ and keep lots of kids happy, but only if they want dogs!!! The crossword puzzles, I may have to fight the DH to do. And lastly the Fat Quarters in Red, Black and White. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a stack of fresh new FQ’s to play with!!! Also in the box was of course a nice note with a picture of her family and 2 candy canes to go with the season!!! There was also a box of Christmas Gobstoppers, but they didn’t make it 24 hours…
So Thank YOU Pegg it was a wonderful Surprise!!!
