It's Been a Quiet Day..

... in Lake Wobegon. I thought I would get so much done! I'm on spring break and have all this time on my hands! Somehow I spent 90% of my day on the computer. I have been organizing some of my photos and albums, reading blogs, and surfing for fun and profit. (The checks should start pouring in very soon.)

I managed to make one quilt block.


The day flew by, and I barely accomplished anything noticeable. Couldn't even complete the one errand I tried to do. I went to the post office to mail two packages... this particular post office is a tiny, one-person operation. It closes every day for an ungodly-long time, around the noon hour. I always forget what those times are. I thought, "well, it must be closed about noon to 1:30. Surely by now it will be open again." I arrived there at 2:20 p.m., and it was closed! Not to open until 2:30. Grrrrr. I gave up and went home. I'll mail them from a more normal post office tomorrow. Like maybe the 24-hour one at the airport. At least that one doesn't have weird hours that I have to try to memorize.

My pal over at Tubaville posted a message saying she had not much to say, and she got ten comments. So since I have just said a bunch of stuff about nothing, I'm hoping I get at least ten comments as well. Make my day and leave a comment!

I have had many days like that--usually when I am avoiding laundry or housework and find 25 other things I would rather be doing! Congratulations on finishing a block!

My post office is the same way! And then I will drive to the next town over and hit that one just as they, click, lock their doors. Drives me nuts.

Sounds like you had a very nice day.

You're now up to comment #4. This quilt block is really pretty. Love that rich wine -- looks like a great batik. I like these 3 fabrics together.
Those doggone computers. They just make the hours speed by, don't they? And then I kick myself because the hours are gone, and I didn't get anything done

PS: Don't expect things at your PO to improve as the USPS continues to cut humans - robots soon - stay tuned.

We all need days like those otherwise we'd be gibbering wrecks! Enjoy your spring break.

Joyce said...

Well the block is nice and you are getting lots of comments so it's not all bad! Lol.

Beautiful block!

I like the light and dark contrast of your block. Enjoy your break, that's the problem with retirement, no spring breaks.

Wahooo - I am comment #10!

Some days are like that - whoosh - they just disappear with not too much to show for it. Just start over the next day.

In truth, you probably accomplished a lot more than you give yourself credit for. 8-))

Well looky there! Unless someone is writing something simultaneously with me...you're to number 11 already!!! lol

Enjoy the rest of your Spring Vacation, Carol!

Hi Carol
I always wondered where Lake Wobegon was (love PHC).
I used to live where there was a very small post office. I often wondered if the mail ladies read my magazines before delivering them to me, as I got them a LOT later than when they appeared at the newsstand.
