I often give bread as a thank you. It’s tastier than a note, don’t you think?
This summer we’ve been gone so often, and folks have helped take out our trash, and water our pear tomatoes, and bring in the mail, plus gather up errant copies of the Wall Street Journal that stray and yellow under the coreopsis…
So, cheese bread for all! Yum. I making several batches over several days to spread out the love.
Thank you, Susie and Mia and Noe!
(By the way, my handwriting has degraded terribly these last few years. It’s not often that I sit and write by hand anymore and I’m appalled by the lack of style and elegance. Anyway, long story short. While my kindergartener learns to write this year, I’m going to join him with my own program. I’m so excited! It’s titled “Spencerian System of Practical Penmanship” and is a series of five small books, created in 1864, for school children. I’m hoping my thank you notes will gain in beauty as I progress–we’ll see!)
Meanwhile, back to baking, on to laundry, and then to the beach! We’re making the most of these last few days of summer.
I love the handwritten note…I look forward to hearing more about YOUR 1864 handwriting work…I still enjoy reading McGuffey readers, and looking at the illustrations…something about old things, that connection to my grandparents and the sweet simplicity of it that attracts me.
Well, of course you can imagine that I’m delighted to hear about your “ancient” course in Spencerian! Woohoo! Can’t wait to see what happens. Let me know if you’d like to learn how to use the kind of pen that those folks who wrote the books would have used. 🙂
