Is it Tuesday?

Today was a day for some errands. Went to the Post Office to send a box off to Lands' End. I used the usps.com Click-n-Ship service to print up a prepaid Priority Mail label. Then I can just walk into the Post Office and hand it off to the clerk. The really great thing is that I don't have to stand in line to do that. I did that when I shipped Christmas presents also; prepaid the shipping, walked into the place and handed 2 boxes over the counter instead of waiting half an hour in line. You can order stamps online also. Remember that the rates are increasing as of Monday!

Then it was on to the Dump to drop off recycling. We have curbside pickup that alternates between papers one week and bottles and cans on the alternate. Except that since our pickup day is Monday, nothing has been picked up lately and I don't have room to store that much recycling. I love going to the dump. It feels so good to be ridding myself of all that detritus. Just heave it over the wall and they take it away.

Then back to FedEx to ship a quilt to Form Not Function. I usually use UPS but there was a $6 difference round trip in what FedEx charged versus UPS. So I got myself an account with FedEx and created a shipment with a prepaid label and also did the return label. Since nowadays it seems that the artist has to foot the shipping bill both ways. It's getting more and more expensive to enter to shows. Whine. Whine. I'd like some cheese with my whine, please.

Anyhow, just so there is a picture with this post, this is the quilt I sent off. It's called Sun Days and it's 28" x 22".
