Incoming for January 18th - letters, cookies, and Moleskines!

I received some very good mail today. At my post office box I had waiting for me a letter from LR, a letter from a young woman in Korea (wow, it's been a long time since I received from someone in Korea!), and two new Moleskines from a woman to whom I sent a new Financial Peace University envelope system. As a Moleskine fan, I figure getting two in an informal "stuff" swap is a great deal! I can't wait to break them in.

At my home mail, I had a good sized box of delicious no bake cookies from a cookie swap I joined awhile back. I still haven't sent my cookies but will get that tended to very soon. I confess to eating a couple of those cookies. They were so very good but a lot of them will go to work with me tomorrow because although I want to eat them all, I don't need eat them all!

My shift for tomorrow has been cut three hours so I'll have the entire afternoon and evening to write replies to the letters I've received the last couple of days. I'll also have the afternoon to work on scanning more things from the tin box. Squeee!

Have a lovely evening!


  1. I like Moleskines. There was a time when they were as precious to me as my iPad. Then the pages started thinning like the hair on my uncle's head. The price kept increasing like the cost of my neighbor's hair dye. Now I am craving cookies like an inmate on death row craves a cloak of invisibility. And that lovely mail is a reminder. :)

    1. Limner, you're right about the Moleskines changing. I have plenty to last me and most were given to me. I doubt that I'll buy them again. I read recently about another brand of notebook that's supposedly the quality that Moleskines used to be. I'm trying to remember the name but it escapes me at this moment. Meh, it will come to me and when it does I'll try to remember to make a note to mention it on the blog.

      BTW, you have such a way with words and it often cracks me up. ;)
