A Nice Surprise in the Mail

Jack the Mailman comes to my door almost every day to pick up packages I am mailing to my eBay customers. Tuesday, however, he was bringing a package to me! I opened it right away, and what did I find?

Goodies! Straight from Ronda at the Pauley Principle! She had a giveaway on her blog, and I won. What a neat turnabout, isn't it? In this package, which was so prettily wrapped, was:

Bacon, already cooked and ready to eat!  And

a box of Bisquick to make pancakes fast and easy. But the best thing in the package--
Homemade maple syrup from Ronda's own farm! Her syrup is cooked outside over a wood fire so it has a unique, smoky flavor. I had to taste a little on my finger and oh my! It's delicious and quite a remove from the "maple" syrup we buy at the store.

Thank you, Ronda! Your gift will make a special New Year's Day breakfast for us! And what a lovely way to start the new year, with a meal provided by a friend made through blogging!

Thank you, Ronda!

Happy New Year, Sue. Enjoy the breakfast!

Granny Sue said...

I will, John :) I'm looking forward to it. After our bonfire, this will be a nice treat.

Aw, gee! I feel all warm and cozy inside! I'm so glad you like it, Granny Sue! I had hoped that my circumstances would allow me to hand deliver before Christmas but, as you know, the season gets busy. Happy New Year!!!

I hope you thoroughly enjoyed it!! Ronda is my mom, and I helped with the collection of the sap & bottling of the syrup. :)
