Month of Letters and Outdoor Wednesday





It's #lettermo!

The month of letters, in which if we feel so called to take up the challenge, we are to mail a letter, postcard, note-card each day of this month. Excluding Sundays and Presidents Day, so that means we have to mail 24 days this month.
24 things.

My friend Shelly exclaimed TWENTY-FOUR!  That's a lot!
I didn't feel it was too bad.
In fact, I tend to 'overload' because I like to write letters anyway.
February 1st - 2 postcards
February 2nd -- 2 letters and one Thinking of you card
February 3rd-- 1 notecard, 5 letters.

I should pace myself, huh?
I just love real old-fashioned letter writing.


I think I've told this story before, but my daughter-in-law was holding meeting one time, and in that meeting there was a mother (senior citizen) and a daughter (middle aged), and the mother  was talking and said  "I got a letter from Nelva yesterday..." and the daughter looked annoyed and said,  "MOM, you live next door to Nelva!"

BUT, I want to be those weird old ladies.
When I get old that is!
Right now I just want to send YOU a letter.  
Seriously!   If you want a letter, email me your address, I'll do it.
I love  #lettermo
Something fun to do in this bleak, dark COLD dreary Mid-winter.





On Wednesdays I'll sometimes join A Southern Daydreamer and her Outdoor Wednesday meme to share some pictures.
Stop by and check out other great photos of the outdoors!







Just thought I'd share a couple of pictures that I need right now.
I live in the desert. I love the desert. I'm a desert rat, but I also grew up here. (look up)  (up on the screen silly---if you are looking at the ceiling right now, well,that's just weird!)
I spent my summers running wild--back when you could run wild without parental supervision--at this lake.
And I really need it right now.
I need to rejuvenate!
The desert is ugly in winter
AND  it's cold and I'm tired of winter.
I need a good GREEN spring at the lake!
We went up to our family cabin in May last year and it was green, Green GREEN!

This place has my heart!

The Post Office wouldn't be struggling if there were more people like you!
