Give me strength...........what I was up to on Monday

I swear if its not one thing it's another. So a month ago I did this post about the problems we were having with our new address, and we finally got it all sorted out. So yesterday I decided to do the change of address/forwarding our mail on the Canada Post website and get that done. I think I get to step 3 and can't go any further, as it's not recognizing our address. What the heck, I am using the correct Canada Post address {{{SIGH}}}, I mean give me strength!!!

So I am having to go to a Canada Post station and pick up a paper copy of this form, and I think I will take it to the post office closest to where we are going to live and get them to fill it out, as surely to goodness, they must know what the correct address is???

The weather forecast has changed for the weekend, and it's supposed to be nice on Saturday, so it looks as though the garage sale is a go. While I was in the basement today, I found some sturdy boxes, that were no use for packing, so I cut them up to make signs for the yard sale, so that was a good job, done. We have to put signs up, as we are on a side street, so no through traffic.



I also made a chocolate zucchini cake as I have discovered I had five bags of shredded zucchini in the freezer left over from last year. So used a bag in making the cake. I am pleased to say I can see me emptying out the rest of the chest freezer by the end of the week......
I was sitting watching the programme called "Build A New Life In The Country," which is on BBC Canada and HGTV, and thinking that will be us in a couple of weeks, can't wait.
Meanwhile the sun is shining and it is a little warmer.....YEAH!!!
For those of you participating in the Daily Savings Club, you should have $14 in your pot today........keep up the good work!!!

ALSO, AS YOU KNOW I EVERY WEDNESDAY I DO THE RECIPE POST, IS THERE ANY FRUIT OR VEGETABLE THAT I HAVEN'T DONE YET, THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE? I HAVE POSTS DONE RIGHT UP UNTIL THE END OF MAY, SO WOULD LOVE TO FEATURE SPECIAL REQUESTS AFTER THAT...........

That is so crazy that you can't get your address filled out.. Maybe get a mailbox and tell the post office to bring it to you every other day.. or go out and ask your mailman if he/she knows what the address would be. I would be afraid of missing something important.

That is so annoying and frustrating - definately a case of 'computer says no!' Some things I think would be so much easier if you didn't have to use a computer at all!
You sound like you are getting on very well with your organising for the move, hope all goes well for your sale and the sun continues to shine for you.
Take care

it appears that the address is going to be a problem. my gosh, what did the prior residents do? is there any chance you can talk to them?
the cake sounds yummy, thought perhaps you were offering cake as an added treat at the yard sale :) if so, i will be there :)

Hope you can get that address fixed. Dealing with Canada Post can be very frustrating at times, just ask me. Hugs..
