A Lovely Day

 I had a lovely time with Mama Joanie yesterday.  After each of us had some things in the morning to do we had to change the meeting/lunch date time to 1 pm.  This allowed me to get my car register for this year.  I made a call to Nardelli’s Deli on Route 67 and ordered us each a sandwich.  Mama’s was Tuna mine was Eggplant Parmigiana

I left here just about 12:15.  The GPS was taking its sweet time warming up (I really hate that thing) and once it got going it had me drive to Racebrook Road and then to Route 34.  I knew I could have gone two other ways but I still followed it.

I was sure I was going to be late when I got caught behind a dump truck for like 8 miles.  I was going crazy.  I finally decided to go around it and picked up speed a little.  I got to the exit I needed and was surprised how quickly I got to Oxford.  I found Nardelli’s quickly (I must have put the wrong number in to GPS because it wasn’t where it said it was) and picked up the order and included two parfaits.  A short time later I made it to Joanie’s.

When I arrived I called her to ask her where I should park (she sublets a basement apartment from a family (not hers) so as I was trying to back out I hit a tree.  No damage to either.  I realized I could go forward and pull up and around to her car.

 She met me at the door and we greeted each other and I told her of my experience with the tree.  We sat down and began our lunch and for the next 3 and half hours we talked and laughed.  We talked about work and we acknowledged it isn’t easy to chat there.  She didn’t know the latest gossip so I caught her up on that. 

It was nearly 4:30 when I left.  We made tentative plans to do this sort of thing again.  I got home by 5 and was tired and hungry.  The kitties were happy to see me-pretty much.

I sat down and ate the rest of my sandwich and watched TV for a little while.  After doing a few things I came upstairs and ended up in bed and sky fell asleep at my elbow.

I woke up after 10 I knew it was as the lights were out.  I did my nightly constitutional and came back.  I was able to go back to sleep for a while but did get up a few times.

This morning was early I managed to get up at 6 and feed the cats and have some coffee.  About mid-morning I got messages from my Facebook family telling me that they were getting friend request messages.  In other words I was hacked so I changed the password and posted messages.  One of my cousins was contacted and asked for his phone number and gave it to him. It should be okay now.  I am really angry this happened. 

I managed to finish a letter to my pal Pam in Ok.  It is two pages long.  I have a few more to do and catch up on laundry and other things.

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…
