A sweet cup of tea

Not so long ago I received a little package.

It was from a very special someone who had
no idea I wasn't feeling up to par,
but she thought of me and sent this ... how sweet!

I don't know about you, but I don't usually get packages
in the mail....especially ones that I haven't ordered!

The last time we visited them (which isn't often enough
due to the distance between us)
she took note of the fact that we shared a love for good tea.
The day before we left she decided we
really should see one more little place, and
introduced me to ...

She especially noticed my fondness for Rooibos tea,
and this place is loaded with every kind you can imagine!
Apparently there are only 4 locations in Canada,
and she's lucky enough to live near one of them.

So, I get this package including one of my favourites,
"Strawberries and Cream"
and a new one to try - "Blueberry Blitz"
which may well become a new favourite!

She also noticed dh loves radishes
so she sent him two special seed packets for us
to plant in the spring...he smiled!

Would you just look at those ... radish watermelon?!
Very, won't those look pretty
in a salad!

And the last thing she included...
besides a good handful of chocolates (most of which
were gone before I snapped these pictures :)

... was this recipe for cookies she had brought
to share with us the last time they visited.
They were absolutely delicious and I consumed
wayyyy more than I should have.

Thank you, Lori, for your sweet thoughtfulness.

I really shouldn't have been surprised,
because you're always thinking of others!

We are blessed to have you in our family!

Mmmm, can I impose and come for some tea? I love the strawberries and cream roiboos! And i still haven't seen your new kitchen and bathroom yet, ;) ;). (the winks mean HINT HINT)
When we go to Minnie I'm stocking up on these teas as well.
That's one thoughtful friend you have there. Or is this your sil?

Sara, I am so glad that you were sent such a sweet and thoughtful treat. I can't wait to see your radishes. . how fun are they? I do love them in a salad. I remember my mom slicing them really thin and sprinkling them with white vinegar and sugar. . and now that I think about it. . I don't think I've ever done that.. but I'm strangely hungry for them.
