I had a 12 1/2 hour day yesterday which is from the time I left for work until the time I got home. I had a three hour period in the middle of the day where I had to meet one of my brothers to fix a plumbing issue.
When I met up with Mike, he gave me the casserole pans and storage containers when I had cooked stuff shells for him. He also handed me a box off chocolates that were from Michael for embellishing his jacket. Yum! Caramels!
Then the post man brought me this box
This came from Glenda. She sent me a pattern and included a box of King Cake mix and some Mardi Gras beads!
The funny part - the cake mix seeped out of the box and there was cake mix powder all over the beads and inside of the package. Thank goodness Glenda had tapped the heck out of the box so none of the mix leaked out during the transporting of the box! I can just imagine the post office calling the authorizes about powder coming out of a box. The HazMat team coming, the post office being shut down, and the HazMat team's surprise that it was a leaking box of King Cake mix. I would have missed out on the mix, beads, and the pattern! The beads on the bottom of the picture still have the powder on them.
Thanks Glenda for the fun surprise! I have never had a King Cake so I will be whipping this up and giving it a try!
