The pool noodles seem to be giving me a message. With the night temperatures dipping into the high 50's and low 60's, the daytime pool temp has dropped to a chilly 68 degrees - a little bit too cold to enjoy. Makes me a little sad because that means the pool will be closing soon and this is one of the only ways that I have been getting any relief from this hip and leg thing.
Our Mailman is retiring tomorrow after 30+ years on the job. I don't know exactly how many years he's had this route, but I do know that it's been for most of the time that we've lived here. I thought that deserved a thank you and a wish for a happy retirement.
This little mailbox and the bluebird are from Picnic Parade (retired). I stamped it onto watercolor paper and used my aquapainter to color it. I stuck to a red, white and blue color scheme.
Maybe you remember the little mailbox stamp holder that I picked up at the flea market last month - well, we decided to fill it with stamps and give it to the mailman. That will keep him from having to go back to the post office for some time after he retires!
I'm adding this to the Blue Monday post at Smiling Sally's blog.
