Blogging and Travel

I have been just reading some of my F-list (Friend list gang) and I read this (hopefully it worked) and I really enjoyed his views and I thank Optimistic Existentialist  for this and his other one regarding the ten places to visit..    I enjoy Blogging because it allows me to share my world and views with others  from around the country and around the world.   I write also for historical purposes.  So people can see what life was like for my family and friends.  ( Edited to Add:  I sometimes repeat my thoughts within the same breath).

Now for the ten places I would like to see.  I won’t be able to list just ten (well maybe I can) but here it is:

Europe (all):  I would like to see places I haven’t been.  I have been to England and parts of France but that was in my twenties and that was an exciting time for me.  I would like to see more.

Ireland:  It is where my ancestors are from.  Several of my family members have been there and I just want to go. 

Canada:  I have been to several regions in that country and I would like to see more.  I have seen maps and would like to explore more and the open spaces.  Oh where have I been in Canada so far?  Quebec (city and province), Nova Scotia, Toronto, Montreal. Niagara Falls.

Hawaii:
I haven’t been and would like to visit.

I would also like to see the rest of the US.  I would like to see the areas that are not necessarily the “tourist” areas.   Until I do I read people’s blogs about their every day lives. 

The sun is shining and there is a light blanket of snow on the ground and it doesn’t look like it will be melting any time soon.  According to the latest weather report it will probably remain in the 20’s today.

I am doing laundry and just hanging out.  I am hoping to meet Ethel for tea and a visit.  That will be around lunch time.  I haven’t been to see her since her last dinner with us.  She sent me a text message at work and with the pressure I was feeling I couldn’t really talk on the phone and so I sent her a message saying I could stop by on the way home.  She had responded she would get the answer from someone else.  I found this out when I called on the way home from work yesterday.

Jim called this morning.  He is fine.  He says he sent pictures of the cat.  Mom says they are upside down.  I suggested that she try turning them around and she did but not easily. 

During the conversation I overheard Mom tell Jim that the Mammogram she had the other day came back with disturbing news.  They found something but not sure.  Mom went on line and said almost never will it be anything.  She says she got the news yesterday and there is a follow up appointment  on Monday.

Well I have another cup of coffee brewing and I have start getting ready for my “tea visit” with Ethel.  I will see you all later.

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 …
