Already three months of 2014 have slipped by, at vertiginous speed or at least it felt like it at times. I've been trying to take it a little more easy since we came back from our last trip. It's not always easy or even possible, but I'm trying. I've scheduled myself and try hard to follow it. I've been good at avoiding work on weekends, and that's a very good thing. I don't even answer emails anymore. I take time for myself. I've been scrapbooking some, working on our wedding album, at night. It forces me to be elsewhere than the office plus I'm away from the computer; bonus.
I've also been quite active with Postcrossing, especially since the prices of stamps are increasing as of today: $0,22 more for local stamps, $0,10 more for the States and $0,65 for international. That one hurts, since most of the cards I'm sending are outre-mer. Last week, I went shopping with a friend, at Ikea, and came back with sixty cards. I'm a postal addict! The next day I was receiving a little parcel from Poland with sixteen cards in it. I'm fully loaded, I'd say, and yet, I'll always land on a profile that requests something I don't have; like a postcard of a dog. Strange but true, I have no cards of dogs. Oh well. Curious about some of the cards I've received and sent? Check out my Flickr album, here. They're not all there. These are the ones that weren't scanned by the sender that I scanned myself, and they're only the ones through Postcrossing, nothing from the personal ones I've been getting (since 1978), too many to scan. I still love sending postcards, and receiving them, it's fun to exchange with people from all over the world. I've been doing it since high-school, with letters, then with blogging and now with Postcrossing and Bacefook. Hours of fun, I tell you!
