Alphabe-Thursday

Hi all!  Sorry I have been missing in action.  Oh you did not notice that I had?  Bummer, I really need to post a lot more often.  I did have some new posts all set up in my mind this week, and in my mind they have stayed.  I did not even think I would be able to post for Alphabe-Thursday because some ugly, not very nice person, usurped ( to seize and hold (as office, place, or powers) in possession by force or without right) my computer with adware/spyware.  So my computer has been to the local computer doctor this week and has came back just in time for Alphabe-Thursday.  So on a happier note:
U is for United States Postal Service
My week started off wonderfully when I came home from work and found two packages waiting for me.  When I first started blogging a little over a year ago my very first two blog friends were Happy Mrs C
http://happymrsc.blogspot.com/ and Debra at Common Ground http://commonground-debrasvintagedesigns.blogspot.com/.  They have continued to be great blogging friends and I enjoy chatting with them as often as possible.  Mrs. C and I even try and e-mail each other once a week with news we like to share with each other and hope to meet in person one day soon.  So back to the packages.  I receive gifts from each of these awesome ladies this week and on the very same day!  And no it was not my birthday but it
sure felt like it.
 
The above picture is what came in the package from Mrs. C.  There was some scrapbooking goodies, a homemade hummingbird feeder, a squeaky toy for Ladybug, notepads, cute kitchen spreaders and even a knife from her hubs for my hubs.  And not to forget some awesome warming pillows with lavender in them.
The bug enjoying her new squeaky.
And these gifts came from Debra at Common Ground.  Not only do I enjoy visiting her blog Common Ground but I also go over to her bible study blog http://adayinthelife-commonground.blogspot.com/ as often as I can.  There is where I found my way back to studying the bible after a couple of years I had set it aside.  As you can see Debra sent me everything Scottie!
I have been very blessed this week by two awesome women and of course the United States Postal Service!
I know this is getting lengthy but I want to also show you another gift I won a few weeks ago.
I won this pattern with enough material to sew up this cinch sack from http://www.hookedonneedles.com/.
I feel like a putz because I took the picture and totally forgot to post about it.  Pink is a favorite color of my oldest daughter so I think I will probably make this bag for her.  I am linking up with Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.

Even though I am linking up late again this week, you should take a hop and a skip over to check out what everyone else has linked up. I'm on my way over myself to catch up on my blogging friends!  Have a great week hope to catch up with you all soon!

Hi thanks for sharing How lovely that your friends thought to send you a parcel

mrs. c said...

You are such a doll to post about the package I sent you! You are such a wonderful person, I just wanted to send you something. I am SO GLAD that Bug likes her squeaky, Reuben sure had his eye on it as I "tested" it with him. Hope hubs likes his knife, he kinda looks like a "knife guy". I am so glad we are friends!

I'm thrilled to meet you. I haven't seen you at Jenny's until now. I only started playing a while ago. Loved all your surprises and being able to turn this into a U post is doubly lucky for you. Sorry about the computer attack.

Bee Lady said...

What a great uplifting post. It's so nice to get surprises, especially in the mail. You gotta feel sorry for mailpersons now a days. All they deliver is junk mail and bills....except when us bloggers do give aways and surprises and such! What fun. Glad your computer is back.

Awww, all I got in the Royal Mail this week was bills and junk mail! Yours is much more exciting!
What a pain about the spyware! Grrrr @ the people who create such things.

Jenny said...

Oh, what love treasures you got through the mail!

Lovely gifts for a lovely lady! How nice to have friends that shower you with love!
