A letter a day

Once again, I'm housesitting and feeding Babe, the cat.  To get ready for this February Month of Letters, I stopped last night — on my way back here from a birthday dinner for a friend — and stocked up on colorful Hallmark stationery, a package of designer paper, and a package of note cards.  I also got a note pad to list names and addresses of recipients and a green pen, which should be perfect for St. Patrick's Day as well.  My mailing list so far includes:
Jan ~ in Texas
Madge ~ in California
Helen ~ in California
Maggie ~ in Ohio
Paula ~ in Tennessee
Jenn ~ in Arizona
Martha ~ in Virginia
Ginny ~ in Florida
Why isn't your name on the list?  If you want a letter from me, send your postal address to emerging(DOT)paradigm(AT)yahoo(DOT)com and I'll add you to the list.  Hey, I'll even send it internationally.


I'll leave you with the two squirrels on the deck where I'm housesitting — click to enlarge the photos and look carefully — there's one at each end of the feeder on the railing. The birds were using that round (squirrel-proof?) feeder hanging down from the eaves.

I mailed my first one today. Also, wrote a condolence card but not counting that in my 29. It was such fun to write my first letter in years. Notes. I have written but a letter not so much.

I mailed to you today! We'll see how long mail takes to get to TN from TX! I like your assortment of writing supplies. Mine aren't as neatly arranged.

My assortment was "neatly arranged" so I could take that artistic photo for today's post.
:p

Do you know how long it's been since I sat down and wrote an actual letter?? I'm pretty sure it was when my brother was in the army!! Man, I miss letters!

What a great idea, Bonnie! I do still write snail mail letters, but every time I do, I'm amazed at how my handwriting has gone downhill since I don't write by hand all that often these days.

Your stationery is very pretty.

Stephanie and Beth, you don't have to write letters in order to receive one from me. Simply email me your address. Send it to emerging(DOT)paradigm(AT)yahoo(DOT)com.
