I had a busy day yesterday trying to catch up with cleaning and other housework after doing nothing for over a week. I got to the day's task
"Send a postcard"
rather late in the evening and then took forever doing it. Instead of just using a postcard, I also made it. I decided that I wanted to send a postcard to myself in the future, a year ahead. I hope that we will have a house at that point and that I am a landlady taking good care of the holidaymakers. That's why I have given myself a title of "Holiday Hostess".
The idea actually came from a course I once attended. We had to write a letter for our future selves. The letter was written, sealed into an enveloped and addressed. The tutor then took them and posted them to us after a year. It was quite a nice experience.
As this was a postcard to the future me, I thought that logically I could use an old stamp. (That's my type of Moomin logic).
I wrote with a real old fashioned ink pen and ink. These were things Elf Son really wanted to have from a museum about a year ago. He also insisted on red ink, although I don't think he realised how pink it was. Unfortunately my handwriting with this type of equipment does not measure with the beautifully flowing old ladies' handwriting.
Today's task was: "Feet"
I think my page became almost like a postcard to my son.
I took a picture of our feet (he was complaining loudly) and wrote my piece. The end bit from "walking cheerfully..."is slightly modified George Fox quote. This is one of the things I would like to teach to my son.
Edit: I just noticed that I had written over over...blaahhhh. Of course there should have been only one over. Never mind!
