Happy Mail Day

It's been quite awhile since I had a Happy Mail Day.

When I was an avid scrapbooker, I used to have Happy Mail Days all the time. You know, the ones when your friendly mail man (or lady) delivers a package filled with all the scrap crap that sets your heart aflutter? Yes? No? Maybe you don't know the feeling of a Happy Mail Day.

Anyway, today I decided to take a half day off from work. I had not been home for 10 minutes when suddenly, I heard a "thump" at the back door. I curiously ran to the window and spotted my mail man walking away. For the life of me, I couldn't imagine what he delivered that would have gone "thump."

I ran to the back door and sure enough, I was delighted to find a package. It was the Better Homes & Gardens Holiday 2010 book that I ordered. I then turned to the mail box and found another delightful sight...the Matthew Mead Holiday book! Two in one day! See what I mean? A Happy Mail Day!

So here I was, home from work, with any number of grueling tasks to do, but somehow, somehow, the Mail Gods decided to send me a diversion...a wonderful, happy, diversion.

Just need to grab a cup of hot tea & cuddle up in this spot.

Ahhh, thank you Mail Gods...I owe you one!


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. I get happy Mail days around the Christmas, usually the rest are humbug bill days in there:)

  2. Gina,

    So glad it reached you in excellent condition... hope you enjoy... Best, Matthew Mead

  3. You're too funny Gina...But believe me I know exactly what you mean about Happy Mail Days. Haven't had too many of those lately...Hopefully soon. I'm waiting for my December Country Living Magazine :-) Enjoy yours my dear friend.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  4. The mail Gods knew you needed a minute to rest:) Love your book choices and think I need to order the new Matthew Mead myself:) Hope you have a most fantastic Thanksgiving sweet friend! I know your table will be decorated beautifully!
