Postcards, Weather, & Construction

Just a reminder:

If you'd like to join the Postcard Campaign and start receiving postcards in November, the deadline to sign up is October 31st - which is Monday. After that, you'll have to wait for December. And trust me, you don't want to wait.

The Postcard Campaign is simple - we take turns sending and receiving postcards so that we get a nice little something in the mailbox each month. Because I don't consider bills and junk mail to be nice little somethings. If your curious, please check out the Postcard Campaign page - link up top.

I hope everyone was able to receive their postcards from Mynx! I haven't seen too many posts about them, so hopefully the Postal Service didn't sweep them under a table.

I'm not sure about the rest of the planet, but it got freaking COLD here recently. It was 20 degrees yesterday morning. There was ice on the front steps to work. While I'm cool with the bundling up deal, it's like Mother Nature just decided for a few nights it would be in the 20s if we were lucky. And then to have it not get above 45 degrees just so we never quite get rid of the chill that's lingering in the air. Helloooooooooooooo hot chocolate. And the heater. And my blankets. And my electric blanket.

Have I forgotten anything? Oh yes, my fuzzy socks. My thermal undies and socks. My insulated ranch gloves. And scarves. And my slippers. Both pairs.

I heard from Mom the other day that the wall frames have been put up at their house (around my room and bathroom for the extension), and the trusses were delivered yesterday so the roof will start going up! I will be home this weekend and take pictures, plus I will post the pics Mom sent me from her cell phone. As long as the weather holds out (we're begging, Mother Nature . . . .), progress can continue!


  1. The postcard campaign sounds like fun, but I'm going to participate in NaNoWriMo in November, which, along with a full time job, will leave me with very little time. Maybe next time. I'm corssing my fingers Mother Nature cooperates.

  2. Yeah, it's pretty cold here too. The post card campaign certainly sounds clever. I'm doing a HalfNaNo instead of a NaNo in November, but my kids will still keep me busy. Love the name of your blog. "The Ramblings of Charlie Brown," because Charlie Brown is the best, who are we kidding?

  3. I got mine! :) I hope everyone else got theirs too because it totally brightened up my day! :) YAY!!!

  4. Oh no I dont want to talk about freezing weather, I hope it stays away this year! Ive been trying to remember to click this link for post cards, sounds like a lot f fun, sadly I don't think I know enough people to send post cards to. haha... Oh wells! stay warm!

  5. It would be really really cool to get a postcard in the mail, but sadly I don't think my parents are too keen on showing my adress to the whole world :( Plus Malaysia's postal service is notoriously lousy.

  6. Roan - You can sign up any time! We'd look forward to having you!

    Angela - Thanks, I agree! :o)

    Jewels - Yay!

    Doria - Well, none of us really know each other! lol There are people on the list that hadn't yet heard of the other bloggers that had also signed up. If you want to join in the awkwardness, you're welcome to do so. Only one person sends postcards at a time, so mostly you're receiving them until it's your turn to send some.

    cricketfreak - That's understandable. And I had no idea Malaysia's mail service was lousy. That's a bummer.

  7. Ugh, cold weather. The only thing good about cold weather is it reminds me of Frosty the Snowman and Santa and Christmas and presents.

    So glad the construction is coming along! Can't wait see the pictures!

  8. I just got my postcard from Mynx!! SUCH A LOVELY Surprise to come home ON MY BIRTHDAY NO LESS and find a postcard all the way from australia. what do I do?

  9. Frisky - It's going to look so different when I go home this weekend!

    Rita - Yay! Now you do a lil blurb about the postcard on your blog. Share a pic of it if you like, who you received it from, steal my lil button and link back to me. :)

  10. I got my card! I even wrote a post about it but don't know if ya saw it lol


I love comments. Please leave one. :o)
