Feel Good Friday: Look What I Got in the Mail!
It’s that time again! Choose a prompt and join in!
I missed out on FGF last week because I was in bed with this horrible flu-thing. I actually considered dragging myself out of bed and over to my computer to write up a post, but in the end I decided it was best just to stay put and rest. All better now!
So…guess what I got in the mail this week? Check it out! Remember when I lamented the lack of shiny foil stars here in Argentina for my calendar? Well, Purplume listened, and when she was traveling on the mainland last month, she GOT ME STARS!
In a miraculous display of Argentine mail efficiency, they took only eleven days to arrive. I was impressed! And she also sent me a knitting pattern for coffee cozies, thinking of the yogurt sweaters I’ve been wanting to make.
Thank you Purplume! Thank you, thank you! I’m so happy to have stars to use on my calendar again.
I find my star system to be really motivating, because it’s color-coded and shows me at a quick glance everything I’ve done that month: exercise, writing on both blogs (this also helps me plan blog posts for the week when I set them up to post on future dates), and other things like translating or planning for our upcoming move (which is moving along very nicely).
One of the things that I absolutely love about blogging is getting to “meet” new people. People that I have things in common with and can share things with. And I also love any kind of non-virtual interaction, like actually getting to meet up with someone I’ve met online (last December, on a super-long layover at DFW, I met up with another of the Destination Experts for Tulum on TripAdvisor.com) or getting a surprise gift like this one from Purplume.
So thank you, all, for your interaction here. And thank you Purplume, for the stars!
Happy Friday! Hugs to you all.
