What the heck, you ask, is InCoWriMo? I asked the same thing and when I found out, I jumped in with both feet. InCoWriMo is short for International Correspondence Writing Month. The whole idea is to write one letter every day for an entire month. Thankfully, the month chosen is February, the shortest month.
Seeing as I’m already a member of Postcrossing, a worldwide post card exchange, and I love my fountain pens and am looking for any reason to use them, this is a natural progression. So far, I have 18 people slated to receive some kind of handwritten correspondence, some through Postcrossing, some through other forums I’m on.
Want to learn more? You can check out the web page here. Why not consider joining me? It doesn’t have to be a letter, per se, just correspondence of some kind… a letter, a note, a postcard… whatever. You just have to write one every day. You can mail it, you can hand deliver it, either way is fine.
And, honestly? Everyone loves getting mail that isn’t a bill.Don’t you? Would you like to get a letter/note from me? Email me your snail mail address at peridot1454 at gmail dot com and I’ll add you to my list. Or ask me for my address so you can send ME some snail mail.

Happy 2017, my friends. Yesterday was a day of relaxation, getting outdoors, and reflecting. The last day of the year was a thoroughly enjoyable day. I did some prep for today’s eating but I also took time to get outside with my daughter and two of my grandchildren. I’m feeling it today, believe me!
I did get on the ice, too. Yeah, I fell and, yeah, I’m feeling it today. Trust me, I will not be putting the skates back on today.
As I said, it was also a day of reflection. One of the things I dislike about our suite is the clutter, especially in the spare/craft room. I look around some times and am completely overwhelmed as to where to start. I know it’s something that I just need to do and it’s me that needs to do it but I’m just not even sure where to start. Well, this is the year for simplifying my life, getting rid of the clutter.
This is the time of year for resolutions but I don’t see this as being a resolution. It’s a goal, something I’ve been wanting for a long time.
I know what needs to be done; I just have to start doing it. What about you? Do you have any goals, resolutions, desires for 2017? What about suggestions? Do you have any suggestions that might help me out?
