Mail Day! Yikes!

This is almost all of the stuff that arrived here on Saturday and today. I say almost all because there were also two birthday boxes from friends.

The envelopes on the left are the Patchwork Party blocks and the finishing kit from the Fat Quarter Shop. I only have one more envelope to get, but I received two from another shop. I need to call them. The monthly charms came from the FQ Shop as well today. Then two other BOMs came -- no, I haven't started these. All in good time. After all, I will need something to work on in The Home!

And then to top it all off, the Keepsake catalog. I'm not even going to open that one! It's going straight to the recycle bin. Well, maybe just a peek. No!!! No!!! No!!!
I'll bet the postman was wondering what the heck was going on today. LOL. I remember that poor postman at my ex-house. He used to ring the doorbell on Saturday, and when I'd open the door, he'd say, "More quilt stuff!" Every weekend the same thing. I know he was sorry to see me move (said with much sarcasm)!!
It is okay to say "postman"? Postperson didn't look right. Honestly, I get absolutely lost in the political correctness these days. It's baffling. When I played basketball in high school, we practiced good sportsmanship. Didn't bother us any. And I heard someone this morning on TV correct himself. He said, "She's a wonderful actor -- I mean, actress." I thought actor worked fine. And
This is going to be a crazy week. Tonight I stopped for a manicure and didn't get home until about 7:30. Daisy had managed to get her kennel door open again, and greeted me at the door. She's been so hyper since I got home. It makes me wonder what she did all day! Hmmm....
Tomorrow night I've got to run a bunch of errands after work, and also pack up my suitcase for the Thursday night Applique Club. I wonder how many will show up. I hope they all come back. LOL Then Thursday night it's straight from work to the quilt shop for the Club. By Friday I'll be totally worn out! Good thing it'll almost be the weekend!
I finally got Melzie's 300th blog prize mailed off today. I felt horrible that it took so long. Getting to the mailing place or the post office is just plain difficult for me with rare lunch breaks and working past when they close. But it's off to her finally and should arrive Thursday. Melzie, enjoy!!
I've plumb run out of clothes. All of my summer clothes are looking pretty "used" - and only fall/winter things are in the stores now. Don't they know we have ten minutes of winter here? I guess I'll go digging in the closet to see what else I can unearth for a couple of more months. I'll have to remember to go shopping for summer clothes in December.
I'm so jealous of all those ladies (yes, you Judy!) who are going to the Nashville quilt show. I wish I could see the strawberry quilt hanging. I'll probably never have another one hanging in a show. Oh, well, I'm sure they'll get lots of pictures. But I'm still jealous! LOL
I'm really behind on reading blogs -- well, not far behind on reading them; just far behind with leaving comments. That's what happens when I sneak a few minutes during the day to read one or two. I'll try to be better about that! Beautiful stuff being created on our little ring!
Gosh, reading over this blog, it's really a potpourri of topics, isn't it? :)
~ It was only 100 today!! Yipee!

All that "he/she" stuff in the legal documents? We do that so we can bill more since billable time is often measured by output! LOL!

I can't remember the exact date of your birthday but it is this week, isn't it?

Happy Birthday, my friend!

My husband was not happy when you reminded me about the Patchwork party. Just one pout though and he told me to get them all. I am sure he didn't realize how much it was for all of them.

What a week .. but except for work, it sounds like a fun week. I'll be checking in with you . . if I can catch you at home!

I love looking at all the goodies you get in the mail! I had looked at that Halloween project and wanted to do it, but when I tried to order it on-line they were out of it. I should maybe look around for another shop.

If I'm right your birthday is tomorrow, isn't it? I just finished reading your back blogs and I thought I remembered your brother calling you last year on your birthday so I looked it up! :)

My kids informed me this weekend that PC is no longer PC. Apparently the new term is Socially Acceptable. What?! We were in 'P'ark 'C'ity, which is a totally PC town (that's how the whole discussion started). SA just doesn't have the same ring to it!

BTW, I keep it simple and use the term 'Mail Carrier', since we have both men and women who deliver mail to our home.

I love your pumpkin blocks! But I won't be tempted. And your box of goodies....well no, I won't be

I hope you have a very Happy Birthday!

Gail said...

Its ok, you can be jealous of Judy. I'll be jealous of all your neat mail- except for when you have to find a place to put it and have to find time to use it and watch your stash grow and grow......wait a minute, I wouldn't even mind that part!!

Mary said...

Yikes is right! I just tossed the Keepsakes Quilting and the Connecting Threads catalogs in the trash without looking!

Looks like you got a ton of goodies in the mail. What fun to open all those envelopes.
