While out taking photographs of new blooms in the flower beds, a butterfly came to visit me.
Then along came a humming bird (on the same exact flowers) for a visit. Look directly above the "P" in Pioneer. It's the only photo I got of him/her.
A box arrived in the mail yesterday. It was from my Aunt who had recently passed away. She had it packed and ready to go, but had not shipped it yet. My wonderful Uncle sent it to me.
Inside, she had returned the jelly jars from the jelly I gifted her, and they did not come back empty. With her generous heart (and her creative soul), she filled each jar - buttons, popcorn, tea bags, and orange candy slices.
Not only that, but she sent two magazines and a letter. Inside the letter, she passed down two of my Grandma's recipes (her mother's). In the magazines, there are fun creative ideas for using mason jars, along with canning recipes.
She also sent me mini mason jar salt and pepper shakers, and she filled them both. My old one's badly needed replaced, and these are prefect. I love them!
I will really miss reading her handwritten letters, having conversations through those letters, surprises, and her positive, jovial spirit.
