Another Successful weekend draws to a close

Another successful weekend draws to a close.  The sky is pink outside in the South Western sky.  It is partly cloudy and just 47 degrees.  It felt colder earlier but I am still not feeling my old self yet.

I left here around 9.  I went straight to the nursing home and chatted with my friends on the picket line who were trying to stay warm.  I went in and chatted with a few of the residents.    Gertrude B was being very uncooperative and swearing.   She continued to speak during the communion moment.  She came back much later.  We started bingo late but that’s okay.   Natalie and Angela came in to make soup for them and it smelled delightful.  I had an opportunity to speak with Natalie about her vacation and her family.  We didn’t have coin for the games so they had my “Undying love and gratitude”. 

After the games I headed directly to Telka’s house and we got started.  The girls were arriving as I was too.  I stayed with the section of the assembly line (Yay I remembered the name of it) that peeled and cored the apples.    Roberta got them from Bishops Orchard in Guilford.  They were huge.  They were called “seconds”.  Some of them I wasn’t that impressed with them.  Some had huge holes in the centers.  I think there were 160 lbs of apples so there may not have been a whole lot of bad apples.

We were done making the pies by 2.  There were a lot of apples left over that we made apple crisp for the shelters in town.  We did have refreshments as well.  We usually make two extra pies to try and they were good.   It was all cleaned by 3.  Some of the others finished the gift wrapping for the gifts for the nursing home. 

By the time it was all done I was tired and not really feeling well.  I suspect not eating all day and having the snacks only and having the penicillin on an empty stomach wasn’t helping.

When I got home Mom had just finished shopping.  I got the last of the groceries out of the car and went inside.  We both were having problems with our knees.  I took a nap and Mom got dinner ready. 

Just as we were sitting down to meatloaf and potatoes Jim called.  He says his doctor is concerned about his heart so he is sending him to a specialist.  Jim is a little worried.  As Heart problems are a HUGE issue in our family.  I think he sees the specialist this week before coming up for the holiday.

Speaking of the holidays I asked Mom about more of the menu and what the plans are.  There will be eight of us.  Jim and the kids will get here by 1 and dinner will start around 4 (we have always eaten then at holidays)  The menu will be Turkey, Roast Beef, creamed onions, string beans, broccoli, of course the dinner rolls, and pies for dinner.  I think that I will take the girls and James on a walk along the beach.  They usually like to do that and at some time we will see Liz and Nelson and perhaps Ethel.

For now I have some bills to pay so I am going to do that before I hit the sack for the night.  Have a great night!

Yay Friday

I am so glad today is Friday.I woke up early again but stayed in bed for a bit.I didn’t lay down again after feeding the cats today.I did a little straightening up here and there.
I got a message from Livia last night letting me know I dated the check wrong and wanted a fresh one.I left another one with today’s date on it.I am just not sure when she is coming over.I didn’t want the house to look messed up after all the work she did.
The ride in was a bit anxiety filled.Several times I thought I was going to plow into the back of several cars.I wasn’t speeding but the cars in front of me didn’t seem to move.I was glad to get to the garage and then to the office.
In the morning I did some refunds and then spent time working on the readdress mail.It was about that time my guardian angel suggested I needed to do them (No kidding) and then as the afternoon progressed.She asked me to write up all that needs to be done because SR was upset that both of us were taking the beginning of next month…

i waited

I had been waiting since 10 to hear from AH my Easter Dinner host about dropping off the main dish to store in my refrigerator overnight.I was expecting her to call before coming. Well she called me around 4:30 to let me know that she didn’t need to come over she had managed to clean her own refrigerator.I had things that I wanted to do.
Liz ended up coming here for coffee and we got caught up with family news for the next hour.She brought me a choc bunny and flowers, and some sweets for breakfast and or desserts.She had mocked horror when I told her how the kitties were able to go in to a closet.She told me what was going on with her SIL in Waterbury and how this and the ride up to Waterbury was a bit much for Nelson.
I have been doing a few things here and there.Like folding clothes, doing the dishes, and very shortly cleaning up the bathroom-again.Earlier had the TV on and did some net browsing.
Oh and around 10 am this morning April the Giraffe finally had her baby.I can’t believe I …

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…
