mail goodies

I know I talk a lot about how much I love the mail, and I apologize if you are tired of the subject, but I’m afraid I am not! When you live in a small town, you come to rely upon the mail, and lately I have been amply rewarded. Check out this yummy yarn that arrived from a certain little rabbit in France:

Can you believe that eggplant-colored yarn? It has little pom pom dealies on it! And the Kinder chocolate? I inhaled it. I am going to have to come up with something very fun to make with that yarn!
And to go with the chocolate, here is some more chocolate (since I am embracing my inner candyfreak these days) and a salty snack to complement it:

Yes, those are ketchup-flavored potato chips all the way from Lois in Canada! The chips are quite tasty. They DO taste like ketchup, but they have a vinegar kick to them that makes your tastebuds do a little squeeze.
Thanks for all the kind words regarding Gigi. I must give all credit, though, to the design talent that is Bonne Marie. She is, after all, the one who designed that sassy little number. It was fun and quick to knit up and is unlike anything in my wardrobe. Yes, knitting will expand your horizons!

    Yeah! The chocolates made it. I wanted to send Kinder eggs, but with the heat I feared they’d show up on your doorstep in a puddle. When the weather cools down…and maybe some specialty coussins Lyonnais, too :-)

    I’ll back you up re: both the mail and ketchup flavored chips. Haven’t had the latter in way too many years, but yum.

    Good lordy, you don’t have ketchup chips either? Tsk tsk. Poor things.
    (We never get tired of hearing about your mail!)

    This Minnesota girl can’t pass up a chance to start singing the old Old Dutch jingle: Old Dutch potato chips, Old Dutch, the snackin’ chip…and that’s all I can remember. Dang. But those two lines will be in my head all day.

    Ketchup flavored chips??? How did I manage to get through my childhood (let alone college and grad school) without these?

  7. knittykim says:

    Ketchup flaver is good, but if you can find them, try Dill Pickle flavored chips. MMM..MMM!
    I noticed you said pom-pom dealies; I wonder if that is regional?? I call them that too!

    I totally understand. I love the mail so much. Sending, receiving, everything. You are not alone.

    Ketchup-flavored chips? weird, but oddly appealing. I’m intrigued.
    You should make a hat with your dealy-bobber yarn. That would be really cute.
    And I fully agree about mail. I love mail like I love Christmas. ;)

    Gigi is darling; and that eggplant colored/shaped yarn–oh la la!

    Love the bumpy purple yarn! In the United Kingdom, I saw lots of weird flavored “crisps” (their word for potato chip) … including the very strange “prawn” flavor (their word for shrimp). p.s. Gigi turned out spectacular! Great job :-)
