Packages, Packages, Packages

If you know me, you know I do not like to shop. In stores.
I do most of my shopping on the internet - or, "ordernet" as my friend calls it.
The ordernet has really changed the way I think about the retail process.
It's been fabulous, really. The comparison shopping without driving around town or without driving from town to town.

My postal carrier, however, is not so excited by my retail needs.

Below you'll see how I get my packages delivered.

So, of course, the obvious joke would entail a variation on the theme of"going postal..." but I can't joke about it.
Not while my precious, precious, fabrics, books, and whatnots suffer the fate of the delivery process!

Grandma's Apple Pie

Early this morning, I made Grandma's Apple Pie for a friend's birthday.
It looks wonderful! I'm sure the birthday girl will love it.

Grandma preferred a crumb-top, but I did not have brown sugar,
so I went with a lattice-topped pie.

Stella's gig at the Nursing Home

Stella and I have been a Therapy-Dog team for about 2 years now.
We're loving every minute of it.
Today, we visited a nursing home that serves about 100 residents.
Stella and her big nose are hit at the nursing home.
Here's a shot of Stella waiting for her shift to start, already in uniform.

We wouldn't be the Therapy-Dog team we are without the mentorship of Teddy and his human, Katie.
Here's a few post-shift shots of the dogs:
