It’s been a pretty non-eventful day! And I’m completely and utterly happy with that!
I had a massage at 10:30 am ---which left me pretty noodley from head to toe.
I headed to Sam’s Club after that to pick up more mailing envelopes – I’m starting to backstock for when the books come in, one must NOT run out of bubble mailers, you know?! And ----
Now I wouldn’t think that a box of bubble envelopes is something that Sams would run out of on a Memorial Day weekend --- but they did. So I parked my cart, and headed over to the snack bar thinking I could at least get an ice cream for my efforts ---there was ONE person in line in front of me…and ONE person behind the counter. You wouldn’t think that would cause a problem, but when I asked for an ice cream sundae, he said there were 3 waiting in line for ice creams to be made in front of me and he wasn’t able to get them done at this moment as he was the only one working the counter.
Someone tell me WHY on a big three day holiday weekend there is ONE person working the snack bar at Sams when the place is a ZOO with people?! And why was he serving the other people hotdogs and pizza and not making the other people who were waiting for their ice cream their orders?
I didn’t wait around to find out why….I left, did a bank run, and stopped for non-big-box fish tacos at a little hole in the wall Mexican place that was more than happy to treat me like I wasn’t an escapee from the zoo.
Remind me not to venture into big box land on a major holiday --- big mistake!
After that, still very relaxed and now full-bellied --- I came home and napped.
And that has been the extent of my day – except for the fact that I’ve been cleaning and sorting. Remember that I finished the last of my Nearly Insane blocks on the NY trip? I still had a bag of fabrics used in that quilt, and I sorted everything, putting all the FQ sized pieces away and sorting out the strips for ironing and re-filing, and putting the crumbs in the tubs where crumbs go ----
And the top of the table was a MESS.
It was at that point that I realized that I could do two things at once ---- cut the strips from the Nearly Insane down into bow-tie sets and clear away the strip debris at the same time. So that’s what I’ve been doing.
I’m just getting started. It will take me a while to cut these down this evening, but it’s brainless and I can put a movie on netflix and have at it!
What’s up for your evening?
