First Weekend of Fall


Good Evening. I have been told this is the first weekend of the fall thanks to the news lady on channel 8.   It was a chilly start and not really bright sunny at 7:20 in the morning.  I was not feeling so great.  I have been having the runs a little and I am not sure exactly although it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to think it was the chips and dips last night.  I was feeling rather achy today.  The shoulder is hurting and as soon as soon as I had something to eat I took the meds.

The neighbors next door put up a fence.  It’s the one between their garage and the kitchen wall.  He came to me a couple of days and showed me where they were putting it and they were taking down the Rose of Sharon bushes.  They can do it because it’s on their property. The fence is nice and it will look nice.

Around 11:00 I left for the post office-empty, then I headed to the salon.  It was Karen’s birthday so we were treated to cake and coffee.  We had a great discussion and got my haircut.  I will post the new look tomorrow.

After I headed back to the house to get my id’s I headed to Liz’s to go shopping.  She invited me before I left for the salon. It was nearly 1 and after I said hello to Nephew Michael he was working on the new bathroom.  All that has to be done is everything connected and painted and stuff it will be done.

We went to the Burlington Coat factory Store in Stratford.  We were there for several hours. We each got something.  For me it was a blouse, a pair of black pants, a new dress for the baptism (and anything else nice) a coat, and a new pocketbook.  Liz got blouses and dresses, and a new coat, and hangers and stuff like that.  We left there by 4 stopped at D&D and then got home to Liz’s by 5.  I left there after about 15 minutes after showing off my “loot”.

When I left there I had every intention of getting the cat food and then have dinner.  Well I had dinner first at IHOP the crepe promo they have been showing on TV.  I had made it a combo with hash browns, sausage, and eggs.  I had a strawberry shake (I could have done without).  I was done by 6 and heading home.

The babies were ambling around the downstairs when I get home.  A lot different than when I left which was in the closet in the bedroom.  They were cuddled up.  Something I wouldn’t have minded to do myself.

I managed to get food shopping done and hung up stuff.  I have the other things to hang up when I get to bed which will be soon as I am achy again.  I also closed some of the windows as I am chilly.

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
