Official *What did you get in the mail today?* Thread!!!
I’ve been enjoying low energy bills this month since we haven’t been running the AC or heat. I was trying to hold off turning on the heat until November, but when I got home from work today, it was 55 degrees (F) in the house! I grumbled and forced myself to turn on the heat… Waited… Waited… Nothing happened! Our heater isn’t even working!! Luckily, my dad is an AC/heat technician, so he’s on his way over now to figure out what the problem is. Until then, I’ll be sipping on this sample of Pumpkin Spice tea I got with my Republic of Tea catalog today. :)
Yay! My Mandala order came! Thanks Garret! Excellent choices on my samples, too :)
Lala’s package of Red Leaf Earl Grey Matcha arrived today! I’m going to split it up and send half of it onto Ozli. Hopefully one of us enjoys it more than she did!
Thank you, Lala!
So many things! My Butiki order (Pumpkin Milkshake and a Rolling Thunder version of the Vanilla Carrot Cake). And a generous Secret Pumpkin package from Short Sorceress, including cookies!
Nothing. I have a new mailman who isn’t leaving my packages outside the door like the other guy did. Left a card instead, and now Canada Post is holding my package hostage. The web site says “it’s available for pickup at your local Postal Outlet”, but the clerk there says they won’t have it until Monday. :((
I hate that. I had the greatest mail carrier for a long time. He would always leave my packages and would even hide them behind my flower pots- which is what I wanted him to do. He retired, and the new guy is way too by the book. He won’t even hand me the mail if I am standing outside in case I am just someone trying to steal it. It has to go in the box and anything that doesn’t fit in the box goes back to the postal outlet for pick up. Drives me nuts.
I live in a secure condo building. There are only 4 units on my floor – trust me my neighbors are not going to steal my packages. Just leave them outside my door. The one I picked up yesterday would have fit through the mail slot and he left a card for that too… Ugggg
My swap from 20monkies came! Inside was Davidstea Banana Oolong and Vanilla Orchid (!!). They smell so good but I’m going to be good and wait till tomorrow since they have caffeine.
I got my DavidsTea order, restocking pumpkin chai, sugar and spice, and mom’s apple pie, and they sent three samples, two of which are winter teas! I can’t believe I got them, when they aren’t even in stores yet! The third sample looks like it could be a holiday tea, but I’m not sure. Pretty awesome customer service! Oh, and I might add, it only took 4 days this time for shipping. :D
A semi unexpected sample of King Tut’s Lemonade, which is from a local store. I went to buy some when I first moved here, but it had been discontinued! I didn’t think I’d get the opportunity to actually try it.
I came home from work and my roommate was standing in the kitchen sniffing the envelope. Since I wasn’t expecting any tea I was so confused about what he could possibly be smelling! But as soon as he handed it over I could INSTANTLY smell the tea! Holy crap is that strong smelling!
I’m excited to try it!
Taiwan Tea Crafts order just arrived packed in a really tiny little box, it took longer than expected to get here, It arrived stateside very quickly, but then sat in a sorting center in new york for a week. I got Organic GABA Oolong, Organic Red Jade GABA Oolong, Jasmine Scented Four Seasons Oolong, Baguashan Gui Fei Oolong, and 1993 Family Reserve Aged Oolong.
Okay, I think I officially have too much tea. ;) I just got my Della Terra order, and they all smell so delicious! I can’t wait to try the caramel pumpkin marshmallow, spiced caramel apple and caramel oolong! Too bad I kind of had my allotment of black tea today! Caffeine, wheeee!!!!
