Incoming from Mrs. Duffy

I mentioned recently that there are some correspondents who I recognize immediately from the envelope or mail art. Mrs. Duffy is another one of these because of her incredible handwriting.

I used to write in a sort of hybrid of cursive and print; it was fast and easy. I'd forgotten a lot of the capital letters in cursive, like Q and Z. After getting a letter from Mrs. Duffy where she talked about cursive I looked up some of the letters I'd forgotten and started to write much more frequently in cursive. Sometimes I still use my hybrid. I really love writing certain letters. Lowercase z's are lovely, and I feel really proud of myself when I do a good lowercase r, which I feel might be the hardest letter to do nicely.

Today is a lazy Sunday. Because it rained last night I'm giving myself permission not to mow the grass. It needs to dry out more! I have a bachelorette party to go to later tonight, but until then, I plan on relaxing and writing some letters... maybe putting on the latest LWA virtual social which I still haven't gotten around to watching!

Howdy Folks!

It's been a while, but I'm back!

Work has really been kicking my butt, but the last classes of the semester are planned and next week I have off, mostly.

I've been writing some letters, and I believe I'm caught up to the month of April! Yay!
But instead of writing a lengthy post, I'm going to write some more letters. I'll leave you with a photo of my desk, (always fun, right?)...

and the recipe for my drink:
A caipirinha:

Cut a whole lime into quarters, muddle with one teaspoon of sugar.
Add two ounces of cachaca and stir, then add ice and stir again.

It's delicious and it's the national drink of Brazil!

Cachaca is a lot like rum.

Happy drinking, happy posting, happy SPRING!!!!
