Shocking! I actually found a pleasant post office in Brooklyn! When I googled the post office in my area, the reviews were unanimous: the worst post office ever. I had practically given up hope on finding someone nice in a p.o. when I found this one. They agreed to hand stamp all my post cards without charging an extra fee, unheard of cooperation!! THANK YOU, whoever you are!
Thank G-d I got a clean bill of health for my cancer, but not a week later I am laid up in the hospital with an IV drip 😦 I got an infection in my arm and cellulitis to boot…
Hope to be home in a couple of days, though, and I’ll try to post more then.
My daughter, Blima, made this lap quilt as a wedding gift for her best friend. Her friend loves flowers and hearts, so Blima used every flower and heart fabric she could find. It is a positive/negative quilt. If you want more info about how to make it, you can email Blima at email@example.com.
I took the quilts home to finish quilting in Brooklyn and kept getting phone calls when I was going to be done. They get them back within the week…
Didn’t they do a great job?!
I recently went on a tour of Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn and had a great time! The tour guide, yes- tour guide(!), said the cemetary was the second biggest attraction in the 1800s in NY. My friend and I had been planning to go for 8 years and we finally made it. We were totally entertained and in awe of the place, we are even planning on going back for part 2 tour. Suprisingly enough, there were about 30 people on the tour. We’re not the only nuts! 🙂
If you are in NY, try to make it for a tour. Great trip!
