As one Holiday Closes

Well Halloween 2015 is officially over.  If I read my Facebook friends correctly the trick or treaters ranged from 1 up to 30 kids at a time.  I checked in with Liz and she had 8 including her grandson Nelson and granddaughter Olivia.  They closed up shop around 8:30. 

Now that this holiday is over we now look forward to the next couple of holidays.  The first is Veteran’s Day.  Obviously it’s the day we honor our Veterans who have served in the Military.  There will be many events around the country and around the city honoring the Veterans.  As you might remember the woman’s Club will be having their annual Veteran’s Program next week.  The venue will be in a different Nursing home as we couldn’t come to terms with a time or date for the one we usually do it for.  (is that vague enough?)

Then of course the biggest holiday that begins the next huge holiday and that would be Thanksgiving.  I have made reservations at Stonebridge one of the most popular restaurants in Milford for ten of us.  I usually start the Christmas cards by then. 

I chatted with Jim via text yesterday and I asked if he had talked with his kids about coming up and they will check their schedule.  If they do come up he wants to get a room at the hotel by Outback Restaurant at exit 41.  I wanted to get the rollaway bed and my old room cleaned up so the kids can stay here.  I still may do it.

I also asked him if he was giving out candy he wrote he had other plans but he was going to leave a dish of it out for the crowds (can’t say kids anymore) but from what I read again on Facebook some people could take the dish with them.

The weather this morning has been cool and rainy.  We must have gotten some showers early this morning as the road looked wet and the leaves were all over the road.  It is supposed to be cloudy all day.  If I didn’t have things to do outside the house I would stay in my pajamas and do what I normally do (Veg) but I do have commitments and letters to write.

Sky having no concept of time change what so ever (when did he ever?). Woke me up at quarter of 4 I think.  I managed to stay in bed until 6 again.  I knew both he and Tiger would be hungry.  I got them fed, got my coffee, and cleared out the litterboxes.

Now they are both sleeping.  Tiger on the rocking chair in the back room and Sky in the spring mattress.  Earlier he had been meowing/crying to get somewhere and it just wasn’t happening.  I did let them both in the cellar for an hour and was quite surprised Sky came up when I called.  Tiger came up by herself.

Well I have an email to my niece Kris to answer so I am going to go for now.  Have a great day…

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…
