Monday Musings

Weather:  This morning was a little overcast but lovely throughout the day.  The temperatures didn’t go past 70 degrees.  There was a quick rain shower before we left the office but the sun was out as we left and it was a little humid. 

The moon seems very big tonight.  There are clouds covering it and it really looks like a Halloweens feel to it.  I didn’t watch the eclipse last night but many did.  I saw it starting when I went out to throw the garbage out.  It probably will be the las time we see the moon for the next couple of days. 

Tomorrow afternoon we are supposed to have thunderstorms well into the evening.  I am not sure it will help the drought we are currently in.  There is a lot of things I am not sure but I heard the report this morning.
  1. A commute the morning commute wasn’t bad but I didn’t leave until 7:20.  The afternoon commute however different story.  I think it had to do with the reopening of the Pearl Harbor Memorial Bridge today.  However it was opened over the weekend I think.  So I don’t know what the big deal was.

    B. busy but didn’t seem like I got a lot done but I try not to worry about it.  There is no shortage of work that’s for sure.  We found out that our co-worker is retiring in November.  She walked around announcing it to those who she thought of as friends and teammates.   Her reasons were the stress and morale were not decreasing and things at home are getting overwhelming.

    C. I touched bases with V & A regarding the Facebook Debacle.  They were surprised to hear I was reported.  They both agreed it was an innocent mistake.  I did ask a few others and they either didn’t think anything of it or laughed about and they also felt it was not a very nice thing to report me.

  2. Pen pals I received a lovely letter from Pam in OK.  I will be writing her soon.  I still have many letters to catch up on but by the time I want to do it I get tired and my energy wanes big time.  That was one of the reasons I was going to stay up was to write at least a number of them.  It’s not going to happen tonight.

  3. Kitties:  They are doing pretty well tonight.  They have been very quiet and spending a lot of time on the bed.  They didn’t come down right away when I got home so I had to go and see them.  I found Sky in the closet and Tiger on the bed.  They usually are running around the house but they aren’t tonight.

  4. Dinner:  On the way home tonight I decided I was going to make spaghetti for dinner.  Instead I made baked chicken wings.  I put some vegetable oil in a green dish and then patted the wings dry (and pulled a couple of feathers off/out) I placed them in the dish and sprinkled Mrs. Dash on it.  I put in the oven at 370 for 40 minutes.  The rest are wrapped up for another night.

    Well the dryer bell is going off so I am going to go and fold them and then go to bed.

Ended up

Because I wasn’t feeling well last Thursday night  and the lack of sleep from it I barely did anything Friday.  I did some laundry, cleaned out one of the litter boxes, emptied the dishwasher only to fill it up again. I made myself an early lunch of steak and potato and had yogurt.  I was not anxious to eat too much as my shoulder still hurt. I think the aches and pains are from the amount of cheese I had in the last couple of days.   I fell asleep for the afternoon watching the X Men double feature.   I did fold some of the clothes and sheets and put more laundry in.  You are probably wondering where all these clothes are coming from.  Some of them have been there a few days and needed refreshing. When I didn’t fold the clothes I watched TV.  I actually sat through Hawaii 5-0 haven’t done that in months.  It's a good show.  It has done a few cross overs with the NCIS franchise (mostly the LA show) now there is some discussion prompted by articles that that H50 will do crossovers …

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…


I am very tired right now.  I ended up sleeping on the couch last night when I saw a creepy crawly centipede (long legged type) on the ceiling and my boy trying to attack it.  I don’t know if he ever got it but I did look when I came up to get dress.  I didn’t see it.
I am feeling pleased with myself this morning (toot toot).  I finally made the tomato sauce I have been wanting to make for the past two weeks from All  It wasn’t all that hard to do. I started preparing it around 5 and turn it on as I was leaving.  It should be ready by the time I get home.  I posted about it on FB…My cousin’s Wife Becky liked it.
Work has been good so far busy as usual.  I checked in with LAS and she told me the services for FC are on Thursday I found the obituary but it is completed yet.  I will be taking the morning off and I may come back by lunch time.  It will be in Cheshire.
I found out that starting this week until we are caught up I will be scanning every Thursday and Friday all day.…
