Editor’s Note: This post should have been published a week ago, but due to lighting conditions and the desire to sufficiently pay tribute to the incredible package sent to me from one of my most favorite bloggers, I have waited until I felt the appropriate creative energy. Now, please listen to this, and enjoy.
(Stop) Oh yes, wait a minute Mr. Postman
(Wait) Wait a minute Mr. Postman!Please Mr. Postman, look and see.
Is there a letter in your bag for me?
Why’s it takin’ such a long time?
For these treats to cross the state lines?
Please Mr. Postman, look and see
If there’s a letter or a package for me!
I was standing here waitin’ Mr. Postman,
Because I saw those Meyer lemon cookies…
That I knew were headed for me
So many days had passed me by
But then I had a fruity feast with my eyes!
This tea truly made me feel better
Warm mug, curled up on the couch in a sweater
, I say gratefully
You sent me joy via sunflower seed*
Please Mr. Postman, tell me how…
I’m going to stop eating all this right now?
At least I know what snacktime will mean:Larabars with chocolate chips and PB!
I will never know just how to thank you, Maria
I’m so-o-o happy
We found a way to spread blogger joy
From San Fran to cowboy country!
Deliver the letter, the next time’ll* be even better!
*And there will be a next time.
