There are so many reason why I say that I am the luckiest girl in the world (pretty much every day is awesome)… but this week was especially awesome.
Wednesday I worked in the garden all morning and when I came in for lunch I found that UPS had come and left a great big package on my doorstep! I was expecting something from my dad and Trudi but they didn’t tell me what it was, just said to watch for a package.
So here it finally was!! I was so excited that I called my dad before i even opened it up so that he could be on the phone with me for “the opening”. I thought maybe the kids (they have 5 and one on the way!) made something for me. I was super excited to find out what it was.
When I opened the box I fished out a big ol’ 3Liter Pickl-It jar! Oh man, I couldn’t believe it- I was in shock!! I jumped up and down and thanked my dad for such an awesome gift. And he said, “Is that all that’s in the box?”
And I said, “Well, there is a lot of packing peanuts, let me look?” And I fished out another 1.5Liter jar! Saweet!!
And then … he said, “Is that all?” and I fished some more and low and behold another 1.5 Liter!
Wowza’s!! I was already the happiest girl, but this topped the cake!
So here’s a pic I snapped right after I opened, still on the phone with dad.
And here’s another that I tried to snap of me on the phone… I’m so silly!
Now I can do some serious fermenting and gut-healing with my new Pickl-It jars!
Here’s another pic I tried to snap for dad. These are taken in my porch. (Don’t you just love the turquoise trim?!)
I am anxious to get a batch of kraut going.
Stay tuned! There’s more to come about the Pickl-It jars- what they are, why they are so awesome and what am I gonna make first!
p.s. Thanks dad and Trudi! You guys are awesome!! ❤
