Working Saturday

Good morning everyone.  I have been at work almost 45 minutes now.  Mama Joanie got here before I did.  I got up by seven as I had hoped too.  While I was getting ready Mom got up and had her coffee and did budget stuff.  She tells me that she left her earphones/hearing paraphernalia somewhere so she has to find it.  

As I mentioned in my last entry Mom is going to start making her pie crusts for pies for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I placed my orders with her as well.  She suggested I don’t worry about eating the pies.  She was making not so subtle remark about my weight.  She is right though.  

After work I am going to do the laundry I said I was going to do last night.  I want to make sure that I am dressed up a little for tomorrow’s Veteran’s Day services.  I am also going to try and get some cleaning done in the bedroom.  There is a sharp object on the floor that I can’t see and I have stepped on twice already.  I am going to see kitty at 4:30 probably so that it will still by daylight when I see her.

I have to make phone calls as well.  For all the upcoming events and such.  For example the Veteran’s Day service.  The PITS (Pie in the Sky) events start this week.  Monday is at Hopkins School in New Haven and on the 20th we will do more at Telka’s house.

It looks kind of gloomy outside and I was just checking the forecast for the weekend.  It looks like it will be cloudy for the weekend but in the 50’s.  As I am writing (and of course working) I can hear the reports and features of how the storms affect a person both financially and mentally.  Mama Joanie just told me that NJ residents won’t have their power until after Thanksgiving holiday.

I have a few sites on in the background so that I can check the webcams.  It looks like the Cambridge site is done for the morning.

World Record

I think I broke the World record for shopping.I managed to spend 45 minutes and not break the budget for grocery shopping.I was home before 8 am.I started doing some cooking the chicken breasts should be done in another ten minutes.I have more to make.I am going to make sauce now.
I don’t think I have ever been in a store so early in the morning.There wasn’t a lot of people there at 7:15 in the morning on a Sunday.I may do that again some time.I did get a few things not on the list but still needed.Of course there was one thing I didn’t get.
Well now the chicken strips are done I tried a couple and wrapped the rest for snacks later.I have sauce going and later on I might do the roast again the right way this time.I finally decided to bring up a tray table from downstairs to put the laptop on it made it much easier on the counters.I was certain I would have to say up late but by 5:30 I was making pizza with some of the sauce and cooling the rest in a container with plastic bag.
The rain b…

Another Explosion

There was an explosion at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York this morning.  An alert popped up in my email and began the details.  They are uncertain of the origin of the explosion but evacuated a few of the subway lines.  IT's about 20 minutes East of where DIane and Rogier live (if I know my directions).    I sometimes wonder if she could feel it or see it from where she was.  I guess it’s like here.  YOu can’t always hear noises on the other side of town.
ON the upside Today is Diane and Rogier's Third Wedding anniversary!  Did I send them anything? Nope.  Do I ever? Nope.  Unless you count  FB messages!
Work is fine.  Spent the morning scanning and the rest of the day doing mail.  The couriers redeemed themselves in my eyes.  They got here by 12.  Had the normal volume of mail.  I finished by 3.  The last hour consisted of readdress mail.
Today must have been bring in food day because there is chili in one aisle and lasagna in another and I turned down both!  Only be…

Snowy Monday

I had hoped to have  missed the snow they were predicting overnight and into today.  Unfortunately it started flurrying when I hit the city. Great. I didn’t bring my boots today.  There are snow showers predicted for Milford this morning and apparently for the city. Lovely we are getting another Nor’easter come Wednesday.  

There is one thing that I forgot to mention.  A strip mall had some damage during the storm friday and I just found out that it was the strip mall by my house.  I didn’t even make the connection until a coworker said something to me this morning.  I hadn’t recognized the names or the background pictures. I thought it was in another part of town.

Work went well.  The healthlogic came early so I jumped on that as soon as I could.  It was pretty quiet for Monday. Could have been the weather or could have been weekend activities.  I had fried proscuitto, baby arugula, melted provolone, baby arugula & tomato with roasted garlic aioli on toasted sourdough for lun…
