A Lovely Time

Good evening to y‘all.  Despite the cold temperatures outside it is a beautiful moonlit night.  If you look over the sound in the east you can see the moon  hanging low.  It is definitely a beautiful sight.

My afternoon with Ethel was very nice.  I left here just about  1 and made a stop to the post office for Mom and then to the bank and then was back in to West Haven by 1:30.  I was going to head over to Ethel’s but decided to head home first.    I felt I was too early and I needed to pick up a few things anyway.

While here put the laundry in to the various machines and then took off again.  It was nearly 2.  Ethel was waiting in her office when I arrived.  She was checking to see if the cat got loose and then we took off.  We had intended to go to Biagetti’s but they didn’t open until 5 (so tell me why there were people in the bar?).  We decided to go to Duffy’s Tavern on  Campbell avenue.  This was my first time but not Ethel’s.  She and Bob apparently frequented this place. I can see why it was lovely.

Today was a little slow for them and it was quiet for us.  We started off with Buffalo Wings and then we each got a salad.  For some reason I can remember Ethel’s Baja Salad but I have to look up mine.  We had tea and for  $35.05 plus a $7 tip it was quite nice.    We talked about a lot of things.  Family , memories, the future.  It was quite nice.  I don’t think it was done in a vindictive way.   It was nearly 3:30 when we finished so I took Ethel home and I was back here 5 minutes later.

When I arrived I saw Neighbor Don and Princess Lilly.  She was so loveable.  Don and I chatted about Neighborhood stuff.  He says the Blue Heron that makes its home in the marsh behind our home came flying in and landed in his yard today.  It didn’t stay very long but it was a beautiful sight.

As I was talking with Don Mom was just leaving for church.  Don and I finished our conversation (I hope) and then I came in and checked on the rest of the laundry.  I also helped myself to a piece of pie.  I loved my salad but it certainly wasn’t enough. 

While Mom was at church I busied myself with TV, and some web browsing.  I even read some emails.  It was a nice quiet time for me.  Which let to me thinking about the meeting on Tuesday and causing me to fret about it.

When Mom came home it was after five.  We talked about the lunch and I asked her views on the restaurant she wasn’t overly thrilled with her times there.  We thought about dinner.  We decided to have cube steaks.  I am sure you have all had them at one time or another.  They were certainly delicious.

We watched our regular Saturday night fare on PBS.  I enjoyed the cooking shows, and of course this week’s segments on TOH from Essex MA.  It looks like it will be very nice.  When I see things like this I try and run to the blogs to find  any and all blogs from the towns they have worked in to see how the neighbors feel.  I never can find them.  May be this time will be different.

I have one final load of laundry that’s in the dryer.  I had promised Mom it wouldn’t be an all day project as it usually is but its 9 pm and it has become that.  I really should have started earlier like I had intended to.

Mom and I are just getting a few things together for the Mexican Train Game session tomorrow.  We have a tablecloth ready and the picture perhaps for the drinks.  I think we may need a couple more chairs but I am not sure.  That can be figured out tomorrow.

I think I am going to empty that dryer and go to bed.  I hope you are all having a great night.  Spend it with those you love.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
