The Elephants Know–It’s Been One of Those Days

Look at what I found! A postcard from the ’90s!

Wow! That’s longer ago than it sounds. In fact, based on my address at the time, this postcard was literally sent at the beginning of the decade. 28 years ago. Can that be?!

The postcard came from the same friend I “mused” about a month ago. I found it in a file folder with some other postcards from lifelong friends–as I was cleaning out old stuff to make room for new stuff. It was odd to find them there, since I normally keep letters and cards organized in boxes.

The card is perfect for today. It matches my mood.

I’ve been stuck indoors all week because of cold and rainy weather, and I’m over it! I’m so over it! It’s cramping my autumn-loving style and hindering my ability to think straight and get things done. Including blog posts.

So, enjoy the elephants.

I’m going to curl up under my favorite blanket with a piping hot cup of pumpkin spice tea and a good book. Not Michelle Obama’s Becoming. I’m saving that one for winter break. 😉

    I’ve read good things about Becoming (oh, there were the usual trolls on the comments, too, but their arguments were useless like: “Oh she just cashes in on her husband’s position!” – Firstly her biography contains way more than those 8 years – and then she is a very interesting person over 50, her 8 years in the White House were an important and not small part of that life. I told those trolls to do one.) I never was tempted to read the biography of Hillary Clinton or any president, yet, but I am very tempted to read Michelle Obama’s.

      Yes, ignore the trolls. I usually don’t even read the comments because they’re far too often steeped in fallacious reasoning. A waste of time and energy. Yes, read MO’s book. You might get to it before me. 🙂

    Cold and rainy days can really droop the spirits, can’t they? I love the postcard and that you found it when you needed it. 🙂 Thank you for the smiles when I look at the pic and the cozy thoughts of curling up with some tea and a book. 🙂 Blessings and sunny hugs to you, Chandra Lynn!

    It’s funny you should say 98 was a long time ago. Reminds me of my daughter, who said, “You graduated high school in ’91???” I told her yes, and even though it doesn’t sound like a long time ago…it was lol
