Pen and Ink Work
The records of daily life at Monticello say that Thomas Jefferson dedicated his mornings to correspondence. After his "pen and ink work" (as he called it), he would walk the grounds and admire the gardens. Today, I am modelling my day after Jefferson. Although I love email and technology, nothing beats a hand-written note with a pretty stamp in the mailbox. I am pulling out the cute note cards and sending pictures, sharing recipes and saying thanks to a long list of friends and family. Do you have any pen and ink work you can do today?
