Chris, the package arrived. You did good. None of the jars of honey broke in the mail.
Thanks for sending them home for us.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) wouldn’t let them on our carry-on luggage. We might mix the honey with bomb materials. (Who thinks this up? Seriously, folks, couldn’t we just carry our honey home?)
The chestnut honey (created by bees who fed on chestnut blossoms) and the Red Ginseng tea were gifts of Christopher’s future in-laws from South Korea.
I am so appreciative of these gifts. Honey and Red Ginseng Tea from Korea! Seunghye’s mom explained to me (through her daughter): “Ginseng is a very good tea for energy.”
When you Google “Korean Red Ginseg tea” you discover that it increases physical and mental stamina, improves circulatory system function to help adjust blood pressure and lower cholesterol, helps prevent cancer development and at least a half-dozen other health benefits.
It’s a good day. The substitute mail-delivery lady walked the box to the house with kind words of greeting. The box wasn’t broken and honey didn’t lie in sticky puddles everywhere. (Although the edge of the box was crushed.) Chris did a good job packing the breakable jars.
Sitting down now with a cup of tea and preparing for our township’s annual meeting budget report. Sounds exciting, yes? Nothing like an ordinary spring day in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with gifts from the larger world…
P.S. Please forgive–I am two days behind in replying to comments. Revenues and expenditures have hijacked the blogger and are insisting payment. Sorry! Will catch up soon.
