My outgoings today were rather small. This is because I have not received any mail this week except for one letter from the lovely El. in Australia (which was adorned with a $2.35 Diamond Jubilee stamp -- look at what I'm missing out on!!), and -- hence -- when one lacks in incoming, there is only so much mail that can go out.
I sent a letter to my Grandma today, just a simple piece to inform her of my going-ons and some things that reminded me of her in my travels. My Grandma used to send me aerogrammes, back when they were still being used. (If anyone knows of a blog/person that makes/has/sells aerogrammes, I'd love to know!!)
Because she's an awesome grandmother, I made sure to let her know:
|Those are real, handcancelled French postage stamps I previously mentioned.|
|And the current "Cherry Blossom Centennial" postage stamps -- love them! It was a pity to have to break the pair for this envelope!|
|I thought it was mighty awesome how the hands and the word "Grandma" met in this photo!|
Today I also sent a piece to my cousin, Tz, in Australia:
...and that's it!! Rather wimpy, aye?
I'm in need of some more penpals, I guess!! (If interested -- let me know!)
On a side note, I finished my major paper. It's due on Friday and I can't wait to hand it in!!
Did you send some mail today? Make someone's day?
I sure hope so.
Send mail--send love,
~ Ms. Always Traveling
