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…

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…
