Good morning everyone! And a happy Wednesday to you!
It's time to share our desks again. (If you don't know what I'm on about, visit our chief desk hopper Julia at stamping ground.)
My desk is full of birthday cards that shouldn't be revealed just yet, but I'm banking on the fact that the recipients won't be reading this blog. Anyway, what is visible are the insides of four birthday cards I'm making. Three of our kids have birthdays in August. The twins in England and my son in Italy. Plus my cousin in Holland. I'll show you the cards properly next week.
In case you are wondering what the two cans of coconut milk are doing on my desk.... I use them as dumbels when I do my exercises.
I had lots of interesting mail this week from faraway places.
The lovely Patsy sent me this card from the Philipines. It has lots of yummy snacks on it. Patsy tells me she likes the halo-halo, the turon and the bibingka.
Then I got two more envelopes from the July envelope exchange:
This one was from a lady who lives on Vancouver Island by the ocean and often sees orcas swimming past. (She enclosed the card of the orcas).
This one came from the USA, but had nothing in it. It has beautiful calligraphy and special stamps. Very nice.
To finish here is a photo of my DH and I at the lake/reservoir where we camped last week. (More photos on yesterday's blog).
Yes, the lake was really that colour... a deep turquoise. Beautiful.
That's it from me for today. This week I will try to visit everybody. It might not all be today but I will spread it out over the week.
Have a good week and see you soon,
