spread confetti, not covid!

*snail mail at its best

*when seeing or hearing the mail truck driving down our street

*opening regular or anticipated mail delivered at your door or in your mailbox

*wide-eyed over your loved ones or friends’ personal handwriting

*a gift opened sometimes in anticipation of who sent it

*maybe someone thinking of you by taking the time to send it

*loved by any and all ages, even your pet

*stamped with love

*unwrapped to a party of confetti hearts or colorful shredded paper nestling a gift of a letter, a simple letter, and/ or a gift

*love,  traveling and sent by snail mail

*joyfully received in COVID-19’s time of masked sheltering  in or lockdown

*when we all have time

*to make or take the time

*when time is all we have to give

*to send a party of confetti


*. . .I think I just heard the mail truck stop

I always stick my head out the door and yell “thank you” to the person who delivered the unexpected and surprise in/of snail mail

AND, yes, send a party of confetti to thank the one who sent it.













l a k e s i d e

.  grab a summer tote and go!

.  don a silly hat

.  any excuse for a party outdoors

.  give me a comfortable space for a chair in a quiet spot

.  to hug the water’s edge

.  slip into the soft romantic lull of summer

.  repurposing with a purpose

.  relax, on lake time

.  immersed in a book or writing

.  snack in between

.  the delights are the unexpected

.  once again marvel at nature

.  people – watching

.  forgetting about the time

.  walk to the shack for an ice cream

.  relish the simple pleasures

.  gorgeous lake views in front of us

.  welcoming spaces

.  100 yr old trees reach to the sky, massive limbs outstretched, umbrella us from the sun

.   recharging our batteries

.  in the pleasure of unhurried pursuits

.  on a staycation not far from home

.  l a k e s i d e

.  when not covid19ing or sheltering in

caught unmasked

#justthe2ofus happily sheltering in together. . . at home. You just caught us unmasked.

(Stay home and shop online for a few masks to add to your mask wardrobe for the times you do go out in public).
