I certainly don't sit around looking this glamorous when in a writing mood!
If you could see me now, early morning, I've thrown on wrinkled linen beach pants
and a basic grey tee shirt to limp across the damp grass to feed and water
Nala cat next door again while her owner is lounging at the seaside for a few days.
I would like to be there too - I so need a beach and ocean view for a change.
Limp? Yes, have pulled something in thigh/leg whilst trying to organize a
lower kitchen cabinet, paying for it now.
I have an affinity for envelopes . . . and writing paper . . . and cards.
I still take pleasure in writing to people via snail mail but admit to
reverting to email more than I should because it's fast and the recipient
gets the message immediately. But it's nowhere near as exciting as
going to the mailbox at the street, or hearing an envelope drop to
the hallway floor through a letterbox!
Speaking of mailboxes at the street - which are of course mostly 'American' -
here you can see my next door neighbor's box, on the other side of us, but
also note a realtor installing a FOR SALE sign . . . . . . yet again!!!!!
Our really great new neighbor has only lived there since last October and,
in that short time, has done some incredible interior renovations to update
the house. We were shocked and sad when he told us he would be putting
the house on the market as he has taken a job in Washington D.C. and
will be moving. Being in a 'hot area' for housing, with many small older
homes in the neighborhood being razed and replaced by larger,
high-priced ones, we are once again concerned as to what might
happen next door.
Will keep you updated on this of course.
