Thursday was cloudy and cool, with a high in the mid-50s. I concentrated on getting my holiday greeting cards written and ready for mailing. I got the overseas cards ready, first, especially the ones going to Sri Lanka, because mail going to Sri Lanka has been hit or miss, recently, depending on if flights are suspended or not. Friend R said most of her cards to her family have gone, but, some people haven't received theirs even though she mailed the cards at the same time and they were going to the same address! Anyway, I managed to give the card I was sending to my half-brother to the letter carrier, so, hopefully, it will reach my brother before the New Year or, at least before next Christmas! LOL! Then, I began on the cards going to family and friends in the U.S.
I bought a box of assorted holiday greeting cards a couple of years ago and I have almost come to the end of the box! I usually buy the following year's cards during the after Christmas sales, but, with our current new Covid case numbers increasing (Thursday's new Covid case numbers for my county was 2,275 confirmed cases), I am wondering if I will venture out to shop any after Christmas sales! I guess holiday greeting cards will be the next item I'll be buying online!
I also made a couple of cards to send to one or two friends and family members. I enjoyed making those and I plan to make a few more, tomorrow.
Today, I am grateful for:
- The letter carrier collecting my cards from the mail box
- Card making ideas and supplies
- Phone calls with family and friends
- A working heater
- Warm, handknitted sweaters
Today's joyful activity was singing Christmas carols with my daughter.
Plans for tomorrow include making more cards, having M tend to the garden, and doing some housekeeping tasks.
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for Friday?
