Friday is just another day for me but I still get happy when it arrives because it means time with my husband on the weekend. We don't always do much but the possibility is always there and that makes me smile. What do you like to do on the weekends?

I drive to my post office every single day to check my mail. Who thinks I'm crazy?  Am I obsessed with mail?  Yes, I am and I love it. I have received some lovely mail this week as always. Here's what filtered in and out the last couple of days not including today. I have not gone to the post office as of yet. I have written one letter so far today and plan to write at least one more.

This is week 2 from my partner for the Themed Messages RR postccard swap on Postcrossing.
This comes all the way from Russia.
This is an official Postcrossing from Canada.
The sender writes:
Hi JarieLyn, this lovely old building is a favourite of mine in downtown Belleville.
The birds love it too, often perching along the roof line.
Sadly, it is showing signs of decay & is currently blocked off for fear of collapse.
Happy Postcrossing!
This is week 3 of the Themed Messages PC swap.
This one is from the same partner as week no. 2 above.
From Russia.
Sorry it's blurry. I have a shaky hand when using my phone.
I have the Galaxy Note and it is very wide and not the easiest to use but I love it.

I LOVE your Opryland postcard! I was born and raised in Nashville and spent the first 29 years of my life there, so I have very fond memories of Opryland. I, like most everyone else I talk to, am sad it's gone.
