Yesterday I heard the annoying sound of a car horn honking incessantly in front of my house. That's the way my mailman lets me know he has a package to deliver that's too large to fit into my mailbox down by the road. Actually, that's his signal for me to come outside and get my mail from him. You might say that my friendly letter-carrier is a bit on the lazy side. He knows if he just sits in his truck and lays on that horn, I'll go down the front steps and around the side of the house to retrieve my package--even in the rain. Grrrrr! He always cheerfully smiles and tells me to have a nice day. I feel like telling him to do his job the right way, but I just smile sweetly and wish him well. One of these days I'm not going to go out when he honks and he'll just have to get out of the truck, walk up the front steps, and ring the doorbell! Imagine that--actually delivering the mail! Anyway, yesterday I quickly got over my irritation when I saw that the return address on the package was from Susan at A Place Called Home. Susan recently hosted a fall giveaway, and I was blessed to be the recipient of her graciousness. Since this gift was from a blogging-buddy, I knew I was required by blogging ettiquette to take some pictures to share on my blog. Inside the package was a cute autumn card; a wreath adorned with squash, pumpkins, and a lovely bow; and an "Autumn Harvest" scented Yankee Candle tart. Autumn decor and a Yankee tart, too! As Maria Von Trapp would sing, "These are a few of my favorite things!" I am sooooo ready for fall! Thank you, Susan, for spreading some harvest cheer! http://riverbendramblings.blogspot.com

Congratulations on winning Susan's fall drawing! The wrteatch is beautiful!

My mail carrier does the same thing. It is annoying to hear that horn blaring, but we are always so delighted that a package has arrived that we all (myself and all three kids!) burst out the doors, tripping and racing one another. Our mail lady gets a kick out of us!! Since most our packages are books, she says she's never seen children so excited to be receiving school books in her life!
