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.

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.


Great list!!! Hawaii is an amazing choice. It's always been a dream of mine. Happy Sunday :)

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…
