Pamela's Daybook: May 6

Today: Today includes a trip to Hobby Lobby. That's a day-brightener! The trip includes CVS and the post office -- not nearly as fun. I'm waiting for the new stamps to come in. Have you seen them? Vintage trucks. I don't like to put flower stamps on my cards to men. There's an awesome tiger stamp out, but they give a donation to the wildlife society so they cost more. 

At my writing desk: Working on a Mother's Day post. Thinking about my June article for The Banner.

In the mail: A two and a half page typed letter from Massachusetts, a note from Virginia, and a thank-you from Urbana, Illinois. RB is doing much better about bringing in happy mail. Ha!

Praying for: Four little girls who are facing their first Mother's Day without their mother. 

Thankful for: Sunshine! It's just beautiful today. 

Creating: Decorating my envelopes, wrapping wee parcels. 

I'm reading: Downloading "Rules" by Cynthia Lord. It's a Newbery Honor Book Award recipient. "Rules" is a young people's book, but Emily thought I'd like it since I just read "The Eagle Tree."

 Wrote 13 cards last evening. I'll mail them today.  I have three I need to have weighed.  I have a postal scale, but I'm still not sure on anything over 2 ounces, or over 1/4" thick or one that won't bend. 

Favorite quote: 
"Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the Biography of Souls." David Thomas
