It was so nice today not to have anything I absolutely had to do. I had some things I wanted to do, but I did not actually have to do them. What a great feeling.
One of the chores I have been wanting to get accomplished was mailing things at the Post Office. You may think, Why doesn’t she just go to the PO and do it? Well, it’s a little easier said than done. First I had to get them assembled. Actually I had that step already done. THen I went to the PO to find out what the cheapest way to send them was. It takes time to do that and no one was in line when I got there bright an early, but once I got the answers I had to get out of line. By that time there was a line forming. I had to find the proper envelopes and put the things in and then seal them. I brought pre addressed labels and tape with me so I could accomplish this.
I got back in line and was making progress when another line formed. Since one of the packages was going to Brazil, it was taking a lot of time to accomplish. I got out of line again, worked on my customs form and then got back to the window. This time I stayed in line since the clerk could not stop my transaction in the middle. Another line formed, but there wasn’t much I could do.
Eventually all of my packages were mailed and I left
After I did a few errands I went home and got busy on the next task I really wanted to do–baking. I wanted to bake for several people and started out with a rather sophisticated and complicated list but eventually pared it down to two items, cookies and French Apple cake. I got it done and then went to deliver the treats.
I knew the PO ladies were going to be there until 5:30 so I rang the express window bell to give them their treat. Imagine my surprise when they gave me a box from Nancy. I protested, but they told me it was saving them from making a slip so I took it.
Once I got home I called Nancy to let her know her box had arrived before Mother’s Day. It was two trays. One was unwrapped and one was wrapped. I did not open it but I could tell from the weight and the feel.
I had a great day and I was glad I had accomplished so much.
God bless you and your day too.
