Cute mailboxes and pretty garden features are part of…
mail delivery. I believe it’s a lovely gift given back to you for your efforts.
See, I delivered papers today for the first time! Most kiddos join the force early on. But 50 year old me? Never too late, right? 😉
Truth be told, my boy is taking over for neighbours that generally do it. So over the course of 2 weeks, we’ll be packin’ papers and getting to know the neighbourhood in a different way.
I walk everyday anyway, and the more I think of it, the smarter this is.
Why not walk and get paid for it?
We have quiet, pretty country styled roads so there’s plenty to see. It was a pleasure as well as a chance to bond with my boy in a different way together as well. Teamwork!
And you know me, right? I can’t keep my camera, or in this case, iPhone tucked away for too long. So I sneaked in a few selected areas that spoke to me (before I got caught). So… let’s snoop!
Don’t you love how these shrubs hug this mailbox? It was totally stunning in person.
A sweet little rustic mailbox with a moss covered asphalt roof.
Just like a real shed buried under a tree. Adorable.
This home and it’s amazing flower gardens belonged in a magazine.
I adore the stamped concrete sidewalk.
This reclaimed lumber mailbox was perfection. That’s a rusty tin heart.
I’d just like it to be known here and now, that I adore houses that have mail boxes, even in hand delivered areas. I’m going to rethink the newspaper stuck under the front doormat or shoe or rock thing myself. I want to have a charming little junk styled mailbox too!
The birdhouses were absolutely buried in a deep abundant pile of daisies. It was stunning.
Why do red geraniums make just everything look exquisite? Such a pretty sight in a little front porch.
The walk was a great workout. And yeah… I was really really beat. I actually sat down on the sidewalk on the way home… Ok, it was REALLY hot out so I’m sure that’s why.
Regardless, I’m pretty sure it did this ‘ol girl some good. I think I want a paper route… for REAL.
(until it rains or snows…)
