Mail, A Book and Some Knitting

After my last picture of the mailbox and the dreaded parking ticket, I was thrilled to open it today and find inside...

My book from Lori Ann and drawings from my nephews, Brady and Shea!
How fun!

In the days of email, the internet and facebook, it's rare that we get handwritten notes and letters.
Even better, pictures drawn by little kids!!!

My grandmother, MomMom used to write me letters when I was first married.
I was living in Pennsylvania at the time and she would write long letters to
keep me up to date with everything going on in her world.
She wrote just like she spoke.

Tomorrow will be two years since she passed away.

I wish I had kept all her letters. But I do have one tucked away.
I think I'll get it out tomorrow and read it. She always finished it with a clean church joke and
a quick recipe if you were lucky. I think my letter has her potato soup recipe in it.

I'm still knitting the sweater. I don't know why it's taking me so long. Oh yeah...because I have a little one that doesn't think it's a good idea for Mom to sit for more than 3 minutes at a time.

I'm reading The Murderer's Daughters. Sad so far.

Geneva is still pregnant. Maybe tomorrow she will have this baby.
MomMom reborn! We could call it Okey Dokey.

I'm going to try not to cry tomorrow....but I'm sure I will.

Write a letter to someone and put it in the mail.
I'm sure they'll appreciate it :)
