When I arrived at the post office this am at 10:06 there were only 13 cars in the parking lot and 8 people ahead of me in line. I concluded my business at exactly 10:14 and with extra time on my hands came home, went outside, and cut some greenery.
I felt like train boy (2nd cousin once removed to pea pod boy) looked very alone up on the window sill in front of the sink. I normally don't have any flowers to cut and bring in at this time of year, but I do have some holly bushes and spartan junipers.
I went outside, did some snipping, and came back inside and went to work.
Maybe it's just me but I think he seems a lot happier surrounded by some green and red and blue.
Not sure why I hadn't thought of doing this before. It's a shame not to have those pretty red berries in where I can enjoy them when it's way too cold to sit on the porch.
P.S. Thanks for your suggestions about printing postage and having it picked up by the post office. Who knew you could do that? Not me!
