Good day for it

Yesterday was Thurs, my regular day off, and only 10 days until Christmas, so I planned to stay home and start writing and addressing my Christmas cards.  I don't quite understand why I got started late this year, but I did.  And its not that I was putting off this activity because I dread it.  Quite the contrary, I really enjoy writing and hand-addressing cards and have a routine based around it.  But here we are, Dec 15 and not a single card ready to go.

Coincidentally we got a severe cold snap and the HIGH temperature yesterday was 27 degrees.  And it was very windy.  So I decided there was no reason to leave the house in such weather, and since I wasn't leaving the house there was no reason to get dressed. 

So I stayed in my flannel lounge pants and flannel shirt all day, drinking Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Spice flavored coffee and listening to Christmas music while I wrote, sealed, addressed, and stamped 124 cards.  It was a wonderful day!

So with all the cards completed yesterday and in the mail today, they'll all be delivered before Christmas.  While it may seem old-fashioned to send physical cards in this digital age, I enjoy sending and receiving them, and feel there's nothing like opening a beautiful, glittery Christmas card.

Happy holidays!

I like sending physical cards to special friends near and far!

I enjoy the cards as well however I fell off the habit of sending them. My advice? Keep sending them and don't stop cause once you do, it's over.
