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.

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…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…

Jeans Day

This is becoming my favorite day of the week.  It's the day we can wear jeans to work.  It is a day to be comfortable but still be functionable and get work done.  Today it may have been a little too comfortable as I found my falling asleep a number of times at my desk.  Today was a little bit of mail and the rest of the day was scanning.  It went pretty well with a few glitches.  I have put in my time for my appointments for July.  I have taken all of Wednesday off and that will be explained in a moment.
I went to the food court outside the hospital for lunch and got some chinese food.  It was pretty good.  THere was a concert in the courtyard next door.  It was great listening to the music.  It has been a long time since I saw those there.
I have to admit I am still not feeling completely well.  I had my dental checkup yesterday and it looks like i am having a root canal done next wednesday..  It hadn’t been hurting for the last few days until they began to poke and prod it.  Hone…
