I had a nice surprise last week. A box arrived from Arizona! My friend Sandra, of Diary of a SAHM sent me an Arizona themed box of goodies.
There was an oven mit, a hot pad, a magnet, bubble gum, an Arizona spoon, a plate, a key chain and some strawberry, prickly pear preserves. I'm anxious to try those preserves. I've never had anything like that before.
Thanks Sandra. It's nice to get something beside bills and junk mail!

Hi Mari,
I have not visited your blog in weeks, and so here I am this morning, reading up a bit.

Really enjoyed my time here!

I'll try the key lime pie soon, it's really easy to make. Just egg yolks and condensed milk, and one drop of green food coloring... from the ingredients, I figure it must take like custard pie, am I right?

The pictures of Alvin (I like their names...Theodore, Simon...reminds me of the Chipmunks group that I really loved when I was younger!). How your cat must be itching to get his hands on the little guy out there.

And I absolutely loved the pic of the dogs waiting for their turn at the tree.

The graduation party was so, they really are into old cars and stuff.

You have a very interesting blog, Mari.

I'm glad you had a nice surprise in the mail, too.

Thanks for being a faithful follower of and commenter on my blog. Your visits have always been an encouragement to me.

Pat is so right, the blogger friends are the best.

Don´t I know it! Packages are so special and they just make the person on the other end seem so much more real.
Nice surprise!

I've had it....the preserves that is. I thought when I first heard about it living there, that that was the oddest thing, ever!!! Jelly from a cactus flower?!! But yes indeed...and it's delicious!!!

What a great surprise. I like the state map on the oven mitts too. cute.

If all of your blogging friends would send you gifts you could get one in the mail every day of the week.

What a great gift and a fun idea to do something from her region.
