Errands early this morning.
Temperature is rapidly falling
Was out of Strawberries, they have arrived at market
and they are unusually good.
Adding to breakfast a dish with sliced strawberries,
1/2 banana and some blueberries.
Returning home and
pulled up to mailbox and once again the substitute mail carrier
had filled my mailbox with a box that I could not remove.
Third time this has happened and it surely frustrates me.
Call to post office and soon he returned to take out of box.
When I told him not to put something that could hardly fit in
mailbox in the future, his reply was "you could get a bigger box."
I am pleased I did not say what I wanted to say to this young man.
Did share that in over 30 years of living in this area this was always
the size box that I had and he could bring large items to cottage
like it has been done in past by regular mail carrier.
Not pleased with myself
as happenings like this upset me
but I know they are really not that important.
Seem to be very sensitive lately....
Keep having thoughts
do I purchase a larger mailbox and find someone
