Clump 121: Mail cards and packages.
Ah, I can breathe more easily now. Sending a bunch of presents and cards to their intended destinations is cathartic. What a clump!
I had heard on the radio that traditionally December 19, today, is the post office’s busiest day of the year. Amazingly, when I finally arrived, there was no line. A Christmas miracle! The postman asked if I was sending anything fragile. I said just the peanut brittle … he (good-naturedly) threatened not to send out my packages, since I hadn’t brought him any.
It’s not really the holiday season in our house until my husband starts making his mother’s peanut brittle.
Before I got to the post office, on the way home from visiting my mom, I stopped in Strasburg and couldn’t help taking a few photos.
These were the same type of lovely boughs and berries that had been arranged so beautifully at Meeting on Sunday.
This was the porch of a shop … not someone’s home. I’ve gotten bold with my prying camera, but not that bold!
If you ever want creative house decorating ideas, Strasburg is the place to go.
This was a cute little reminder on the porch of the shop, a fitting holiday sentiment.
Thank you to you, my kind friends who make life good.
