Wednesday 19/2

Just bits and pieces going on today. Nothing especially interesting or pretty or exciting. Typical Wednesday most likely. 

Just my friendly wasps that live in the garden. No really, they look scary but they so far have taken the attitude that we aren't foe so no stings. They can stay... for now.

I did get some lovely mail though which made the day interesting, pretty and exciting. One letter from Wales, two from England and an envelope full of puzzles from my mum who lives close by.

One thing I have discovered since taking up letter writing again is that people are never too old for stickers.

And look at these sweet cards just for me. The cake card even has the recipe for red velvet cupcakes on the back. Very nice and on my to-bake list.

While I wait for the girls to arrive home this afternoon, I'm 'working' on a zine. I'd never heard of them but apparently they are very real and lots of people are making them. A few of the Letter Mo participants are sending them out and about so I thought why not? Well because I can't think of anything to 'zine' about and I am truly not creative. I make things yes but, I can't come up with many ideas of my own. I like to follow instructions or rather tweak instructions.

hahahaha laughing at "we are never too old for stickers ! " too right must admit I still love trying to convince my children to start a sticker book.

good old letter writing you know I miss it the excitement of waiting for the posty to bring happy mail and then sitting down and reading it.

the Zine sounds very interesting

Wasps love to catch caterpillars especially the cabbage butterfly ones. The big yellow paper wasps are fairly good neighbors but the dark European paper wasps and our little yellow jackets are on my kill on sight list. I can't remember what year I last wrote a letter and not surprising I get very few. lol
