About Me

March 1, 2024 Kalo Mina or Good Month, just a quick update. I will rate ASAP on all swaps I receive. Sadly it is taking months for swaps to get to where they are going and for me to get them. So please be patient, sadly up to 2 months.

February 13, 2024 I have updated my snail mail address and my email. Happy Valentines day with some loving fun!

12 2 2023 What a week I have been through. . .5 days ago I woke up in the hospital, AGAIN, due to my epilepsy. Today I was driven to the hospital by ambulance again. I started thinking I had diarrhea. After over an hour on the toilet and screaming from pain I called my husband. He called the abmbulance. I was begging and screaming. Turns out I had food poisoning. I described to the Dr. what I was going through. He said, oh, that's OK, you had a mild case. I pray no one ever goes through even a mild case of food poisoning. The pain is EXTREME!

I am unable to join any swaps at this time. I have to stay in the traveling ones. I believe it would be unfair to others in these swaps. I will start joining other swaps ASAP. Enjoy your swaps folks, you never know what is going to hit you!

July 27. 2023 Postcard stamps are now double price from here. was 1 Euro about $1.10 is now 2 Euros about $2.20, I started to cry. Swap-bot and Postcrossing are my main and almost only hobbies. I will now have to cut way back. I am unemployed after 48 years of working.

June 10, 2023 My 3rd day with covid. 102 temperature 24 hours a day and so on, no electricity 2nd day, no internet the first day, today all that is working but I am not. All swaps sent on the 8th. My husband is negative and will return to work Monday.

June 5, 2023. . .my husband came home and went stright to bed. He didn't feel better the next day. Sadly he has caught the coronavirus again! He had all 3 shots! We have isolated ourselves. Our son brought some groceries and left them inside our gate. uuugghhh, what was the purpose of 3 shots???

May15, 2023 The main post office here is in the process of relocating. I hope my snail mail won't be late. It was closed last Friday and today. I dropped my swaps off in the boxes outside the old place. There is no boxes outside the new place.

May 8, 2023, struggling with tendinitis. One wrong move and I scream in pain. Trying everyday to get small jobs done without moving the rwrong way.

anuary 17, 2023 Going back over old swaps. Some are expired. I hope to be better this year at keeping up with rating and checking on being rated.

November 8, 2022, want to let y'all know, it is taking average 6 weeks to get a postcard from here to the USA.

November 1, 2022, buried one of my 3 cats. Today November 4 buried the 2nd of my 3 cats. A type of "cat leukemia". :( Today the 3rd one was checked out. She does not have it. She is getting shots to protect her from it. To go from 3 to one in such a short time hurts horribly.

Had the funeral for our 100-year-old friend! He was/is awesome and sorely missed already. 10/10/2022

September 25, 2022 I am better. I have joined a few swaps. I am so tired but working every day since April will do that. It has been rough. I am grateful for what I have and what I don't have.

My dad had back surgery, he passed away, the news I got is his body wasn't strong enough to recover from the surgery. He was almost 81. The hits just keep coming. . .my husband's older (75-year-old) brother had his leg removed, he is in hospice care and not expected to live, alcoholism combined with diabetes. August 18, 2022, he died today. Today was the funeral of a 47-year-old mentally handicapped fellow. He came to the store every day, made silly jokes, improved my day and mood. He was in hospice for about a month and died of a heart attack. No internet at home for 9 days so far. Hours on the phone with the provider, a new router and still nothing. Tomorrow an electrician is coming. . .updated 8-8-2022 (I'm using the internet at work on my break) 25 August a terrifying storm passed over the island, I do not remember such a furious storm, the loudness and amount of thunder was scary and lightening, WOW, took out most of the phone service and fried most of the internet routers on the island.

October 26, 2021. . .my dad mailed me some blank Christmas cards from California, USA. . they arrived today, June 29th, 2022!!! To make it worse, the cards are mildewed and stuck together!!!

The mail, uuuggghh, I mailed a postcard to the USA it took about 5 weeks. During that time, I re-sent to my partner and took only about 2 weeks. It makes no sense! I drop them off inside the main post office to a clerk or outside thd building!!!??? Sorry! June 7, 2022

I get mail only once a week.

I have 2 threes'; I am ashamed of this and sad. I can give no explanation.

I married a Greek/American and moved to Greece with him.

.

I am a Christian. I attend a Church here where I live.

PLEASE, notify me if you don't get what I sent, I will re-send ASAP!

I am married with 3 children and 1 grand baby!

I have 3 cats. As of November 4. 2022 I have only one cat. :(

POSTCARDS: I love postcards such as recipes, turtles, frogs, squirrels, flowering plants, flowers, any from any movie, ad cards if they are funny or clever, bible verses, UNESCO sites, freebies, Stay Calm and..., Twilight series (loved the books and the first movie, liked the other movies), Game of Thrones books, loved them, any from any TV series, any holiday anytime of the year, cupcakes, cakes, tea or coffee, printed with encouragement. PLEASE, send any postcard you want. I have a VERY limited choice for sending.

TEA: I prefer NOT to receive green tea because I don't like it. I also do not chamomile tea. I DO LIKE to try flavors that are not common.

Burgundy and Pink are my favorite colors.

I love flowers, flowering bushes, flowering vines. Especially if they smell good. All Cacti but again if they bloom, even better.

Texas and Oregon are my favorite states.

I like sending and getting snail mail of any kind.

Tex-Mex food is my favorite, 2nd favorite is Greek.

I like reading. I read almost every book that comes my way. I keep one in different places so I can always have one available when I have time to read. ha ha ha

Comment: Thank you for the swapping postcards and the extras! We have always wanted to visit Santorini, but it is quite a ways away... I love the postcard of Santorini! It is always beautiful! Too bad they can't limit visitors in some way. Everyone would enjoy visiting in smaller groups! And the local people would appreciate it so much! I understand what you are saying; we live in a county next to Illinois, and every summer we used to say that they moved the Illinois state line up into Wisconsin. We don't say that any more, as now we are inundated with Illinois cars all year! Thank you again - I loved your note and the same to you - health and love!
Response: You are welcome. Thank you for your kindness and rating.

Comment: Hi Debra, I received your mail today on Thursday the 25th of January!! I hope you'll end up receiving the card from #81. T_T Hopefully it'll arrive :'( Also, I'm going to pass your traveling card to the swap host in a private swap as soon as I can so that your card can reach the next person sooner. Like I'll write my details on your traveling postcard, and then pass it to the swap host next in a private swap about something else (but she doesn't give me a traveling card, so that I'm not responsible for any more traveling cards... in a way, I'm "dropping out" of the swap because I need a break from so many things at this time). I hope it will at least be interesting for you to have your card sent to the owner of this swap series so soon!! ~Kiyasu
Response: #81 arrived! woo hoo I hope you recover quickly! ((hugs)) thank you

Comment: Thank you for the Santorini postcard, I hope that you'll achieve all of your goals this year! What kind of cross-stitch project are you currently working on? :)
Response: You are welcome. It is a tuff one. ha ha ha I have to do 2 stitches as one, I hope that makes sense. It says I love country and has red hearts and B&W cows around in a square. I am not real good at this electronic stuff. I will try to send you a picture. Thank you kindly for the heart.

Response: I'm sorry it took so long. Recently a partner got her swap after 2 1/2 months. I was shocked. I cannot explain what is going on. Thank you kindly for the heart. I wish you health and love.
