So, I didn’t get around to working on the snail mail site today. I got in my walk and came home and did my two stretch videos. I watched the snack one and then ate lunch. I then ended up going to a friend’s house. We rode to Gretna, Virginia to the Dairy Queen. We have one, but they are in the process of re-building it. We got ice cream (me too!) and then headed back to town. I came home and went looking for a few more pen pals. I haven’t been getting a lot of mail and I am worried that I’m going to have a few pals that just write once and never again. I have a few really good pals that write often, so that is good.
I found three potential pals tonight from two of the pen pal sites I’m a member of. One from Georgia, here in the US, and one from The UK and one from Spain. Hopefully they’ll all write back. In the beginning of February, I wrote to several potential pals and only heard back from one of those. At my box today, I did receive a return letter from the pal I was matched up with via Letter Writers Alliance. That was cool!
I am going to finish this post and then relax for a bit.I have been tired all day. I was so tempted to skip my walk today and go back to bed! I didn’t do it, but it was hard not to. I just checked tomorrow’s weather. It’s supposed to rain and be in the 50’s. That will be a change. It’s been so warm here lately. Oh well, hopefully it won’t rain on me while I am walking!
I sat down and caught up on some penpal letters tonight. I have a few more to do, but all of them came Friday, Saturday, and today, so I’m caught up. I was matched up at Geek Girl Penpals and I think my new pal is going to be great! She is into Adventure Time, Harry Potter, and so much more. YAY! She is the first pal I’ve gotten that is into Adventure Time. 🙂
My stamps that I ordered from USPS came today. The International ones are so cool. They are round and they have the moon on them. The Forget me Not ones are pretty too. I love stamps. The moon ones are so neat. The stamp looks nifty on the envelope. I also found some cool Air Mail stickers via Letter Writers Alliance. I put one of those on each letter I’m sending out. They look vintage. So neat! I love LWA in case I haven’t mention that!
In other news, I got in my walk. It was in the upper 60’s today! Whee! It was a really nice day to walk. I stopped by the post office and received a new pal letter. 🙂 I came home and did my workouts, I ate lunch, did more workouts, and then went out to inflate the tire on my car. I figured if I could get it inflated, and the car was running okay, I’d try to run to the grocery store. I was able to do that! 😀 I almost forgot to get bottled water. Luckily some guy walked by with some in his cart and I went, DOH! lol It was nice to be able to drive and get my own stuff without depending on someone else! I still need to get the tire fixed or replaced. Hopefully I can do that soon.
I got home and put away my groceries and realized that I didn’t get home with my bananas! NOOOOO! I looked on my receipt and saw apple. I didn’t buy apples. She rang up my organic bananas as apples and I still didn’t get them. I went back and they gave me another bunch of bananas. They might have been mine! I also got a little over a dollar refund. I came home and did the last workout. I meant to do them all earlier, but since I had inflated my tire, I figured I better run and get my groceries.
Today’s workouts were all fun. She had a new workout called Happy Hard Core for happy abs. Let’s just say my abs weren’t all that happy with me. LOL! :p It was a good workout though. Now, I’m going to relax for a bit before bed. I need a new read! I will have to go find something in my collection. I’m in the mood for a good book.
Okay, I promised I would tell you about my packet from LWA. Here is what I got:
I received my member card, a note, a cool postcard and a patch. I was quite pleased with the goodies. I immediately went to the site and logged in and checked out all the awesome downloads that are provided for members. I found a ton of goodies. I also signed up for a pen pal. The LWA is only $5 for a lifetime membership. So far, it’s been well worth it. Check them out if you are interested:
They have a store where you can buy cool stuff. I want to order some of the stamps (not postal but stamper stamps) I like the motto on the postcard. “You have to send a letter to get a letter.”
Okay, that is my write up of LWA. I am a fan and a member. 🙂
