This week has been a busy one so I haven't had time to surf the net for links. And when we heard it might snow, we stocked up on groceries when we were off the mountain yesterday and we're so glad we did because it started snowing this morning. The puppy thought it was wonderful so we played in it for quite awhile. Now that we're inside I think it's the perfect weather for writing letters while enjoying a mug of hot chocolate. Hope y'all are having a great day as well. =^-^=
After spending several weeks with my sister, my daughter is back "home" and so is our laptop. (^o^) And since I had to get up a bit earlier than usual this morning to take the puppy out (he's mostly house broken but once in awhile he needs to go out a little ahead of schedule), and since the laptop is here and wasn't being used yet I thought I'd use this opportunity to share a few links I found recently.
Push the Envelope: The Lost Art of Letter Writing - I especially ♥loved♥ her families tradition of everyone sitting down on Sunday afternoons to write letters to their grandparents and other relatives. I wish I'd thought of that when my daughter was little. She likes letters (especially receiving them) but seems to do more emailing and texting than actual pen and paper, snail mail letter writing.
How to Write a Letter (Your User's Manual)brought a smile to my face. I even laughed out loud at parts. The author wrote it "To help rescue the postal service and keep neighborhood post offices alive, I've devised a system to teach those who grew up on the Internet the basic methodology of corresponding with others through a revolutionary hand-delivered process."
Sorry I've been AWOL - moving has taken longer (and been more time-consuming) than expected so there hasn't been much time for blogging. But this morning when I saw this post about a library letter-writing bee I had to share it here. It makes me glad to see more people helping to revive the art of letter writing.
I'm not sure where to put this blog or how to classify it. This blogger is a daughter of a friend and while I'm pretty sure she's a Christian, it isn't a Christian blog, or books & reading or letter writing & mail art. It's basically about their travels so I'm putting it here for now: Jen's blog: 3toGo
