Notice

on swap break: recharging

Thank you to everyone for their patience. Did you drink some water? Take a break and be kind to yourself.

About Me

Hello. I'm Dee.

Canadian wordsmith, female. Fluent in English. Art history minor. Huge fan of science and psychology. Bookworm open to book suggestions. Tea fiend.

Allergic to cats and dogs so please be mindful of the fur when you mail me something. Thank you in advance.

I had a personal project to handwrite 5,000 letters, no deadline. And I wrote the last letter of that project in Dec 2019. Took me 10.5 years to complete it.

Still writing snail mail but not tracking the recipients in my agenda anymore.

I tried to write a Thank You card each day in February for #InCoWriMo. It wasn't so bad. I only missed three days in total and made it up each time the next day by sending two thanks instead of one. I feel thankful for many different people.


Curious about people and places abroad. When I travel, I enjoy talking to locals, visiting museums, and people-watching in coffee shops. I read the community newspaper to see what matters to those who live there.


In our world today, a lot is happening and draining both your mental and emotional reserves. Sometimes, you forget your own achievements and the good that is happening around you.

If you aren't sure what to write to me but want to write something, then the question I ask you is this:

What three things went well today?

Focus on what matters to you.

P.S.

Swap for the love of swapping, not ratings, hearts, or comments. If you wish to send extras, that's at your discretion.

Comment: Hahaha I loved your PC!! The joke was right up my alley, and the back was even better. :) I just celebrated our 6-month anniversary with my partner (yes we met *right* before quarantine haha) and re-watched Inception in a nearly empty theater with a close friend this past weekend. Your weekend sounds just as lovely! I love curling up on the couch with a good cup of tea! I've also finished second season of Umbrella Academy, I'm super enjoying it. Will have to check out Never Have I Ever. Hope you've thoroughly enjoyed your recharge time!

Comment: Woops, sorry about the weird rating. I mixed up my two Library Lovers. :S Your awesome funny card arrived on the perfect day because I was complaining to my sister about my cousin's wedding being a destination wedding, lol. How did you get so many stickers on this and still write a long interesting message! You are magical. I hope you get to do more things that make you happy and definitely volunteer at a library! Good luck and THANKS! :):):)

Comment: Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the book. I actually read this book too in May. I actually started reading this book because of The Kiss Quotient by the same author. Did you read that yet?

Hi Dee! Thankyou for your card following the 'Learn About Your Library' swap. It arrived Friday, after a loooonnng journey! Libraries here have re-opened, although there are still some covid measures in place, including reduced hours. I am just so pleased to be able to borrow! I am currently working my way through Kate Ellis' books - an English author who writes crime - and have just finished Australian author Monica McInerney's new one, called 'The Godmothers'. It's a fun, light read and one I highly recommend! Thanks again for brightening my day with your card, and all the best! Tracy (MeggyMoo)

Hello Dee and thank you sooo much for your beautiful postcard! :) The best that happened in this week... well, let me think about it. Oh, I know! I tried a new recipice of pumkin pie and it actually worked and was delicous! Monday I divided the cake with two friends and they were stunned that you can eat pumpkin in a pie! - It's really crazy in Germany, were pumkins are only used for "real meals" like soups or vegetables and meat. Have a wonderful time and enjoy the autumn! ^.^

Hi @dmwcheng this is random but I just came across your profile and find your story fascinating. Sometimes I struggle with follow through in my goals and I'm inspired by yours, especially that you had no deadline on your 5,000 letters. Anyway... completely random. Have a lovely day!

LiliLuv on Mar 28, 2020:

I received a thank you card from you today with a packet of Emergen-C in it! What a lovely surprise! Thank you and I hope you are and stay healthy! <3

Thank you for the very nice envelopes. The quality of the paper is quite nice. I’ll be saving these for special cards.
