To Poland, Russia, and Germany. I'm all out of international postage stamps now. I'm going to drop off a package at a postal store (not the U.S. post office, which is further from my house) and maybe see if they sell the stamps there, but I doubt they will.

I've been trying to get my received cards scanned, but I'm currently sharing my office with a baby. ^^; And when the baby is sleeping, I can't scan.

This is one I got recently from Ukraine.

Volunteer training at the museum has been going well. Pretty much all I've been doing is shadowing tours of the house. One of the docents--I mean, interpreters told me that apparently there's some expectation that eventually carriage house greeters will lead tours, which is not what I was told, but I think what she meant was that many greeters eventually become tour guides.

I've been looking into places to visit when I go to Florida, especially historic homes/mansions. So far there are a few in the area where I'll be, but one in particular costs $20 just to get in. I think it includes a bunch of stuff in the tour or whatever, but I don't feel like paying that price. The place is sometimes used for weddings so I wouldn't be surprised if the interior included a lot of modern furnishings, which I don't want to pay to see.

I was just reminded that I still haven't posted the second half of my trip to Lake Chelan. I shall get to that right now.

In the area of postcrossing, however...

Sent to Lithuania and U.S. respectively. I sent another one to Germany but forgot to scan it. It was a postcard from Craters of the Moon National Monument. A shame because it was a pretty postcard. :( By the way, the house pictured in the postcard to the right is the one I'm volunteering at!

Sent to Russia and the Netherlands, respectively. Seems I've only been sending out two at a time. It costs $1.15 to send a postcard overseas, and I bought a sheet of 10 international stamps, of which I've already used half. I also bought postcard stamps for cards I send within the U.S., but I don't get that many addresses from the U.S. Despite actually being a fairly cheap hobby, it can add up after a while, so I'm not going crazy sending out postcards as much as I'd like to.

Oh, and our electricity came back on yesterday afternoon before my dad and I got home. Yay!

Left one sent to Germany, and the right one sent to Taiwan. I was excited to find the one I sent to Germany because I'm trying to get more into field sketching.

Two postcards sent for Postcrossing. The one on the left was sent to China, because they were interested in postcards showing maps of things and I didn't feel like sending one of Washington so that was the next best thing. The one on the right was sent to someone in Minnesota. It's a painting of the old railroad depot (now museum) in Wallace, Idaho. It's already been received.

I have pictures to show from my trip to Stehekin, Washington, but I'm hungry and need to eat. x_x

Getting back into collecting vintage postcards.

Some people like to collect certain themes, and I never really had a theme other than maybe landscapes, but I think I'd like to aim for western themes.

I keep thinking about needing to study for the GRE, and I keep telling myself that I need to take a long break from studying for anything.
