OMG! What a lovely surprise!
Thanks so much to you and Chris for the lovely birthday present...it arrived perfectly well even though the cold pack was thawed. I'm munching on a piece of the Chocolate Mint right now and it's melting in my mouth! ...that one's my favorite, hands down!
Ok, for those of you who weren't at White Hart Renaissance Festival and didn't get to taste any of the sheep's milk fudge or cheese...YOU MISSED OUT! Not only did we have Penny, our dear little mascot for the faire, but they also sent fudge and cheese made of sheep's milk which is lactose free
. That's right, for those of you who are lactose intolerant, sheep's milk is lactose free and this stuff is delicious. Actually, rather than fudge, this is called "Smudge" which is cute, mental images of an old KCRF character notwithstanding.
It, and Penny, came from Stoney Acres Sheep Dairy and Cheese Plant in Competition, Missouri. They're at www.stoneyacres.us and on each label they give a complete breakdown of ingredients.
Anyway....I'm a very lucky and thankful woman who has such friends who send her prezzies and stuffs. You guys are just the greatest!
And then there's mermaid2003
who sent us a hand-fasting present of a set of wonderful cotton towels when she read on a comment that we're short on towels! Good heavens! Thank you, dear...I'm just over-whelmed.
Life is good...now if I could just a) get rid of this blasted headache and b) win the lottery so we had the money to do what we need/want to do! Might be easier, I spoze, if I ever bought a lottery ticket.
