Here from its world tour!

I've neglected to blog about my most recent SP experience because it was sad - there was mail trouble! - and there wasn't anything good to say except that my pal was nice, kept me entertained, and was very cool. My pal's packages, posted from Europe, got lost in the mail! (I blame American efficiency.) Both my pal and I agonized over the state of them, and finally today I just said a little prayer that whoever got the yarn was happy with it (and not a family of moths).

But look what I got today! Here from the Netherlands!

A lovely goldfish card! (really lovely!)
Card from SP!

Theo! (Tea?)
Tea from SP!

Yarn! Calmer and Tapestry, one of each. Tapestry has soy and y'all know about my short, torrid little affair with SWS.
Yarn from SP!

Scarf style!
SP book!

Brabantse elerkoeken! (I have no idea what this is, but there are 4 "stuk" in the bag and apparently each has 1235 calories. Yeah!)

...something...from SP!

STROOPWAFELS! (I have been searching the continent for some proper stroopwafels for two years, since my friend Jethro from Holland spoiled me with some. They do not exist here. These are the good ones. The bag is so heavy it makes you laugh. These are to be jealously guarded!)

Stroopwafel from SP!

When the box arrived it was looking very shabby, and I was worried the contents fell out or were damaged. Nope! It held together, nothing is damp, there is no odd odor. Here's the box, sturdy fellow:


And now I am going to go try a stuk. THANK YOU MY LOVELY PAL, YOU'VE MADE ME SO HAPPY! :)

PS: A new hair salon for the list: Fades n' Braids - WOO!

You never know. It may just show up. I got a box over three months late once, and that was just from the other side of the state!!

Yay - I'm glad your package appeared and was filled with treats! I forgot to tell you, I have a salon for you (it's in my neighborhood so I see it almost every day) - The Mane Man barber shop.

Ok, this salon is closed now, but I used to get my hair cut at it: Dave and Marcy's Chop'n'Blow. Curl Up'n'Dye is still in the neighborhood. :)

Omgosh what did they do to my box?! Mean post people!

But YAY! Party! At least 1 box is here! (now let's wait for the other one) The Eierkoeken, literally translated eggcakes, and they don't have that many calories :P. They're spring food around here.

Glad you at least got one box of goodies!! Packages come and go, and if you are lucky, that missing package will show up someday!
