FedEx delivered more than a quarter-ton of books on Tuesday – 507.4 pounds, to be exact.
Here’s the truck arriving, with six of the eighteen boxes stacked precariously in front:
And here is what a quarter-ton of books (plus the inevitable photobombing cat) looks like:
And this is what I’ve been tackling today:
That, dear hearts, is only about 2/3 of my pre-orders…so I have been busy checking and rechecking addresses, inscription requests, etc., and signing/packing books all day for the past two days. I’ve been tucking a handwritten thank-you note (and invitation to spread the word) inside each book, which takes time, but the people who pre-ordered from me deserve extra attention! even if it means a little more effort on my part.
And I’m over halfway through already! The Priority Mail packages are already on their way, and I’m hoping to get the media mail and international packages into the mail within the next day or two. I just hope the postal employees don’t freak out when I turn up with 50 more packages for them to process!
Finally, like a breath of fresh air, this turned up on my doorstep yesterday…
That is six pounds of mercerized 10/2 cotton yarn…the perfect thing with which to replace the white warp that is giving me conniptions. So I am planning to wind the new warp this weekend and get cracking on it in early August. I’ve been away from the loom for WAY too long!
