- I already had the dental appointment, which I was alerted to with a postcard in my own handwriting. It's always a bit disconcerting to see my handwriting in the mailbox. But I stuck the card in the overstuffed mail catcher on my home office desk because I love those stamps. Aren't they beautiful? Click to enlarge.
- You would also have to click to enlarge to see the scribbling on this folder, which began as the folder for my 1996 taxes. Sometime in the early '90s, I had a boss in my corporate job who asked us to deliver reports and such to him in used folders. He hated the idea of brand new folders (for some reason.) I laughed when I was digging in some old papers last weekend and came up with the one pictured. A lesson learned from him, I guess - re-purposing a folder. I must have been waiting at my tax appointment, listening to my work voice messages to get visuals to Maria, to see Leeann on Monday and to send (photo) release to Dawn, etc. etc. A trip down memory lane and I'm keeping this folder, which now holds papers from a church committee I chair. :)
- And this is the loading dock at the printing company. I noticed a lovely little flowering shrub has "volunteered" between the cracks there. My mother used to call plants that spring up "volunteers." Nothing at all beautiful about that view, except the shrub that I noticed in passing and, of course, that beautiful blue sky.
Beauty in unexpected places - a favorite good thing. I hope some of that is in store for you this weekend. And a special Happy Birthday to Naomi, who is 83 years old today. Happy Birthday, my friend.
