Wow, was I surprised to open my mailbox and find this beautiful, autumn-colored letter from my favorite blogger, Deb of Mountains Musings! Deb's daughter, Hannah, took the butterfly picture. And what a wonderfully, written letter Deb wrote! Not just a few lines or paragraphs, but lots of updates on her family and life in general.

I have to admit, I do have an English degree, but I rarely write snail mail. I am more the editor type. You write and I'll edit. One of my favorite things to do is to proof/edit papers for school.

But I have to say, I received so much joy in getting Deb's letter, that I have decided to pass the blessing on and send a few letters myself. Our church has quite a few elderly members who would love to hear from us. So thanks, Deb, for the inspiration. Maybe I can start a new tradition with my daughters (even though Allen has the best penmanship!).

I thought my homeschooling friends would appreciate this comic from a paper that is about 10 years old.

My laptop was up and down this weekend, so Mike is re-installing some new software to help out. In addition to my laptop, our server kept kicking me off repeatedly. And finally, eBay had a bunch of technical difficulties and I had no access to my selling page. So I am behind in my replies. Give me another day and I will catch up.
I had many special requests from eBay customers this weekend, so Anna and I spent the morning in my sewing room cutting out fabric. We are now caught up but whew, it was a lot of work!
Take care and enjoy this beautiful autumn. Many blessings ~ Kathie

Kathie, so glad the letter was an encouragement to you! I am so glad! (Sorry I didn't write your name with an 'e' at the many other bloggers' names end in 'i' that I could just picture Kathie ending in 'i', too! Believe it or not, I actually thought about that mistake in the middle of the night after I mailed it. LOL!)
