They're Here...They're Here...They're Finally Here!

I've been waiting with great enthusiasm for my package to arrive. Everyday I've been checking the front porch and the mailbox... waiting... waiting... waiting! (Who would have thought 7-10 working days would take so FLIPPIN' Long!?) And today was FINALLY the day! I was so excited when I walked in the door and Husband asked, "who got all this bulk mail?"

I love opening up packages, don't you? Especially when you know that something you've ordered is IN THE PACKAGE! I found myself so anticipating opening up the packages, that when My #3 asked if she could open one, I automatically said "no, these are mine" without even thinking. Does this make me a "less-than-ideal" mommy? Well if it does, I guess I'll have to learn to live with the guilt.

My newest additions to my gardening library.
I just LOVE used books!
So I opened them up and laid all my new treasures out on the table...

Oh, there is nothing like the smell of a book... the potential of what is to be discovered... the anticipation of what knowledge is just laying in wait, waiting to be claimed, learned and shared.
I'm so excited about the new information I'm going to learn. =0)

Gotta go now... dinner's done, dishes can wait until tomorrow morning (I promise I'll get up early and do them before heading out for school drop-off and work). Besides, there's a cup of tea calling my name!


  1. I can totally relate to the excitement of getting something in the mail!
    Especially when the anticipation has made it a killer wait!

    It's like Christmas morning...(insert evil laugh) and it's all mine! Hahaha

    I am guessing, I am going to have to visit again if I want to read these. I'm kinda doubting you are going to let these leave your side for awhile!

    Happy reading, Farmgirl-sister!

  2. Yeah, afraid you pretty much nailed that one on the head. These are definitely proud additions to my library. =0)
    I told Michael, someday when the society collapses and we need to go back to hunter/gathers, he's going to be happy I have all this information at my fingertips and in my head.
    That's when he smiles and yes, "Yes, dear, I know."
    (hee, hee)

  3. I can just see Boo's face falling when you said NO! Haha
