Look what the cat dragged in...

Okay, okay, so the post doesn't actually have anything to do with cats, but rather, packages!! I do believe that at this point, the Danish postal service must believe that it's my birthday because for the last couple of weeks, they just keep showing up at my door with packages from the good ole US of A. Weeee!

First, a package from my mom and dad with books, a big chocolate Easter bunny (not pictured - hmmm) and lots and lots of Hershey Kisses (also not pictured.. sensing a pattern here)...

A few days after that package arrived, along came another one, this time from my sister-in-law. She sent me a whole pile of books as well as the Parade article featuring Frederick and Mary and several pages from the Sunday comics - a nice taste of home!

My mother is really skilled with a sewing machine and whipped up these little caps for me and sent them off! I don't know if it was because of a slow postal weekend or if putting 'chemo caps' on the customs form means they rush things, but she mailed these on May 22 and they arrived here on May 25!! Woosh!

And then yesterday, much to my surprise, another package arrived! This one was sent by my co-workers back in the states. I am blessed to have a great group of people to work with - people that I consider friends and people who have been there for me over the years many times. I happened to have mentioned during a meeting about 2 weeks ago that I didn't think it was possible to purchase Saltine crackers in Denmark and saltines are one of those things that, as any good american knows, what you eat when you feel nauseated! Lo and behold.. SALTINES!

I have to mention it - I don't know if you can read the card or not, but it's 3 Golden Retriever puppies and above them it says HEAL!. Perfect card for me and one that definitely put a smile on my face.

Packages from the US are always exciting and I am so lucky to have great family and friends! Thank you to everyone. :)


  1. Wow, that is a lot of stuff! Isn't it nice to know that people are there for you, even if not physically? :)

  2. Don't all your presents look nice together?

  3. What treasures! I love the little caps :)

  4. Oh lovely!
    And I notice that there's still some chocolate left on that last pic. *grin*

  5. Packages from "home" are the best! I can only imagine how excited you were...and how fast you tore into those kisses!!

  6. Wow - what delicious looking packages! Enjoy!

  7. Oh I so remember how much I looked forward to packages from my family and friends when I lived in Denmark. My mom was really good about sending copies of my favorite magazines, books, newspaper clippings, and of course food!!

    Enjoy your goodies!!
