Didn't Snow at All today

Well  it looks like the local weather forecasters over reacted to the snow.  It did come overnight but it was not a lot.   From my fellow statesmen it would the same for them as well.   The current temperatures in Milford right now are mid 40’s  and will remain this way for the rest of the week.  That much they had said late last week.. 

I stopped at D&D this morning and there was no waiting to speak of.  I told the girl who waited on my that Kristina works at a D&D in Allingtown.  When she asked me how she likes it I said “she is 17 how do you think she likes it?”.   It cuts into her rather short visits here  and I would imagine it can be frustrating at time yet liberating because she is getting paid.

I showed up at the nursing home close to 9:30.  I went directly into the nursing home and visited with the residents and then started getting coffee.  I had to get the key from the nursing supervisor . 

WE got started late because well I am not sure why.  We had the nice woman from Christ the Redeemer provide us with Communion.  We then got to playing and we played for the entire hour.

After cleaning up I left and head to the picket line to chat with them for a bit.  They are just waiting for the Judges to sign off on the injunction that was in place.  There are things that need to be done from the top level of the union (such as make sure everything is still in place for them financially).

I  got to church late (gee what a shock).  The parking lot seemed very full to me and at first I thought it was something going on (such as a christening, baptism) but as someone suggested it was parishioners resolutions to come back to church. 

Anyway it looks like Liz was right about the Pastor deciding to close the church hall  on Sundays.  I hope I can explain it as best as possible.  The church hall is attached to the attar and if there is no room or you have children crying or in my case you are late you can slip in unobtrusively (usually) it has been used for as long as I have been attending the church (read: years and years).  Now Father Aiden is trying to save money where they can (ie heating the hall) and promoting the spirit of the liturgy.  So the early morning masses on Sunday (crack of dawn and after dawn)  that would be 7 and 8:30 the church hall will be closed.  I am thinking that in time it will be all the masses,

As I said Father Aiden is hoping to make a number of changes and he has already.  He is hoping to add  a children’s Mass to the schedule (like every other week).  I actually kind of like it. 

When I got home Mom was in her office.  Her printer has for all intensive purposes  died.  It is the hard drive.  She didn’t know it at first  but after a visit from Don and when it happened a second time and her spending a lot of time with HP it was discovered the Hard drive crapped out.  All in the middle of her paperwork.

The afternoon has been spent doing laundry and hanging the shower curtains.  I had to put them up because Mom wanted me to.  (I am sparing you the reasons behind it).  It took me a while to take them down and then when they were washing it was hard putting them up. 

I have a feeling I am going to be up late doing the laundry.  I really didn’t want to but  they are going now.  I guess I have done about 4 loads today (and some are smaller than others).

In a short while Mom and  I will be having Shrimp and Crab cakes with Rice for dinner.  It was so spooky because when she suggested I had been thinking about it earlier.  Really spooky.


I did have a great conversation with my friend Mardi.  We talked about the weather and the Flu outbreak that seems to be grabbing everyone.   We really want the snow.  Speaking of weather the temperature is supposedly at 40 degrees. 

Okay I am going to check the laundry and I will try and stop in later on before going to bed…

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 …
