Guess what we got yesterday? Nope, nothing so exciting as a puppy (and given my taste for the large hairy working dogs such as Scotch Collies, a good thing, I suppose . . .)
No, this is what arrived:
2 boxes MacIntosh apples, 2 boxes Gala apples (I’d requested Jonagold, my current favourite, but the apple man had run out) and 2 boxes of D’Anjou pears. 1 box of each for my sister and her family and Mum and I will share the others with a couple of friends.
A lovely man, Orville, brings fruit from BC and then delivers it. We met him several years ago when we were still in Mum’s house. When I was still working, if anyone else wanted some we had the lot delivered to the office. It was fantastic, sitting at a computer with the scent of peaches wafting up and out to the hallway, luring people in . . .
One thing led to another, though . . .
After the bi-weekly vampire had been, ‘fed’ and left:
I have a surprise nearly ready to share, too, but it may not be posted for a day or two . . . no hints 😉
