Fall Apples To 'Refrigerate Upon Arrival'!

      Hello! I hope you're all having a quiet Sunday like me and hubby are. Fall is my favorite season. :-) Oh! Have I said that before?!....Sorry. *Teehee* The header photo was a shot hubby took from the back door yesterday evening...Ahhhhhhhh!...Before I tell you about the BIG package I got in the mail yesterday, let me show you a couple of the other photos hubby took...
       He didn't even actually go outside to take this one. He took it right through the screen. He thought it was so pretty out there that the screen wouldn't matter! ^_^ What do you think?!
        And he didn't want to be the only one enjoying he stuck Tina out there! LOL
       Poor headless Tina. Nobody pays her any attention until they wanna entertain themselves! ^_^ ...She looks chilly, doesn't she?! ^_^
      Okay....enough fooling around! I really wanna show you the package I got!!!...*jumping up and down!* :-)
      Oh Yeah! It's BIG! ...I got it from Nicole's Homemade Treats blog! I won second place in a blog Giveaway she had! :-) And I'm telling you right now...if this was 2nd prize I can't imagine what the first prize box looked like!!!!
        There were so many goodies in this box!!
         The prize: 'Goodies from 5 different Etsy shops and a small caramel & chocolate apple with your choice of topping from her shop.'...The truth is though.....there was waaaay more than that in there!!! :-)
       It's gonna take me a few days to show you all of it! For today I thought I'd just share with you what was in the two "REFRIGERATE UPON ARRIVAL" bundles. 
     Oooooo! Anybody that hasn't eaten their breakfast yet is gonna hate me! ^_^
         Sorry! ^_^ It's a chocolate and nut covered candy apple!!!! :-) YUM!!!! And I'm not saying yum because I ate it either. I actually haven't touched it yet! It's gonna be for a little bit later, after I get some food in my stomach!
      I'm gonna have to find a friend to share some of it with me though, because hubby can't have chocolate. Anybody interested?!! ^_^
       But wait! Remember how the prize list said there was " a small caramel & chocolate apple with your choice of topping"?!...Well, that wasn't all that came!! I also got this!!!...
       Oh Boy! Oh Boy! White chocolate and caramel is on this one too!! :-] ...Thank you Nicole!!!! Thanks to you, somebody is gonna have a big smile later today....and probably a toothache the size of Texas! :-))
      All of my goodies are inspiring me to get me some delicious hearty Sunday morning breakfast, a cup of hot coffee, and a quiet place to eat my apple and write! :-) Now you know what my morning is gonna look like!...What about yours?! :-]

 Living Are The Words

All Poets through the ages,
from Poe to Maya Angelou,
have known the power of a word
and what the written word can do.

Words, alone, or in a sentence,
camouflaged or on their face,
are living breathing things,
occupying time and space.

Left within the mind
no one can hear them swear and curse.
When you release them by your speech,
their jab can go from bad to worse.

A complement is like the carving
of a golden apple's peel.
Falling gently on the hearer,
making shiny words a meal.

Cutting words are like a dagger
seeking out the mind and heart.
of the innocent and sure.
Pulling confidence apart.

Living breathing, in and out,
causing havoc every day.
You could be their vehicle.
So, be careful what you say.

Let good words inhabit spaces,
(which inevitably they do.)
And in receiving minds and hearts?
Let them flourish in there too!

Oh Yeah!...Don't forget to check out the Giveaway too!---------->
