Sock and Swap News

Well, Camille got her Sock it to Me package, and unless she is so sick she's delusional, she seems to really like them. Hooray! It seems yet again I stressed over socks for a stranger unnecessarily. Whew!


Via email, Adrienne, my Sockza pal, let me know that my socks are world travelers now. Not only did the fly from Virginia to England, but they biked around Europe with her this summer. That should calm my socks for strangers fears, but, erm... no. I'm glad my sock swaps were successful, but I'll not be signing up for more.


My tea swap package is still out there, looking for its home. Perhaps today? I'm eager to see if my pal is as pleased with it as I was when I assembled it.


However, I'm not sitting idly waiting on my packages. (I've lost track of what is on the way to me - things I've ordered and swapperly goodness.) My dearest mother inlaw brought me some chocolate mint tea from her cruise! OH. MY. GOODNESS. It smells like a peppermint patty. Add hot water, steep, and a dash of sweetener, and you have a cup of liquid happiness. It's in a cute little wooden box. It's the same brand she found on another adventure this summer, but that raspberry tea wasn't as impressive as this. Of course, I can't find it locally, and only in a couple of spots online. Figures. Still, I count myself blessed to have such a thoughtful mother inlaw, and I even politely offered her a cuppa' too. We've also decided we need an electric kettle and a teapot for the office now.
