It's cold. What? Is it February or something?

No snow or ice, though so I'll take it. We've had some snow flurries, but nothing accumulated.

I'm doing well with Lettermo. I've gotten two letters so far. Here's the back of one envelope I sent.

I finally finished the dragon for Ash & Jeff and mailed it today.

I made a dragonfly today. It desperately needs to be blocked. But here's a heart in the same thread.

I also tatted a split ring bracelet, with moonstone cubes, from the same thread. It needs to be blocked, so no picture.

Alas, my Superb Owl team did not win. Oh well, at least they played a pretty good game. Not good enough to win, but enough to make it a pretty close game.

So many great Kickstarters. I have nowhere near enough money to get in on them. *sob*

Thursday is the Deadlands game, and this weekend I visit Mom.

Lettermo Has Begun

Lettermo has begun.

I mailed one letter to an aunt on Saturday and then dropped off letters to my mother's other sisters on Monday. Monday afternoon, I dropped off letters to my dad's sisters and to my one great-uncle for Tuesday's mail. There's a Patreon to support Lettermo. Here's a picture of the letters I sent on Tuesday.

The weather got warmer as the week progressed and the weekend was just fabulous. The weather on Monday was so gorgeous, I sat outside at lunch. This is part of what I saw.
There was still a little snow left; where the plows had piled it up. They aren't very big anymore.

Many libraries are posting 'color our collections' this week. They offer black and white images for people to print and color. Here's a library at my alma mater; with an image a day for the week. The Bodleian Library is also doing it.

This is a very interesting article about reporting in and on a culture not your own.

Date with CC tonight. She pointed me at this comic/cartoon series. I finished a bracelet while we were talking.
