The Weekend


It was very foggy Friday morning and it didn’t cause many problems.  It cleared out by lunch time and then sun for the day.   The temperatures got into the high fifties.  Again very different from last year.  Saturday was in the 60’s and sunny for part of the day until about 1 when it clouded up and a shower.

The literary club party was lovely.  The home they meet in is very nice.  It reminds me of the Baldwin Sisters house on the Walton’s TV Show.  There was a wide variety appetizers and cookies.  I ate it all (not surprised).  This was more of a social gathering than discussing the latest book.  Maureen tells me that they meet every two months instead of the monthly meetings.  Maureen is looking to get back to the old way of socializing as well. 

Friday night was the Knights of Columbus Christmas party and it was a lot of fun.  Lots of food.  We sat with friends and classmates and we had a great time.  Santa came for the kids and of course Liz and one other was Santa’s helper.  I left sometime after 8 and was home a short time later.  I was pretty tired by then.

Jim contacted us on Thursday and told us he had a health event earlier this week and had some tests and would be going in for a procedure yesterday.  It turns out that he got a pace maker implanted.  He had x-rays early on Saturday morning and was home late Saturday afternoon.  He was still uncomfortable when we both texted him so I am hoping he is okay now.  I sent him a text early Sunday morning but I think he was still sleeping.  Which would be a first in a long time.

Saturday morning wasn’t feeling well myself I had a headache so after feeding the babes and cleaning up a little I went back to bed until about 11:30.  The rest of the afternoon was very full.  I had my hair done around 1:30 and was late for the Gift Delivery.

The gift delivery was really odd.  This year we had to “censor” what we gave the residents.  Usually we give gifts that range from various toiletries (shampoos, body washes, luffas, razors, etc.) well this year we were told we couldn’t give them certain items and we had to take them out and just give certain things to them and the rest to the nursing staff.  Apparently some of the residents have been known to eat, and drink them.   So now for next year we are going to reevaluate the gifts.  It would have been nice to know in advance this was a new policy.  Dr. T wanted me to make sure that I let the Rec Director know we did what they wanted us to do. 

When I got home I ordered pizza and sat down and watched TV for a while. I was excited to see the original Star Trek Movies were on.  I was hoping ST 4 would air but alas no.  I didn’t watch the 5th one.  I did watch parts of Rudolph.

This morning I am trying to get the labels done for more Christmas cards.  I am hoping to get at least two pages more done (that means about 60 more cards done).  I am also doing laundry and getting that done for the week.  This afternoon is Bingo.  I have nothing else planned except the cards.  Maybe some shopping.

The kitties are exploring the closet in my old room and I can hardly wait to see what it really looks like in there.  I am hoping that during the recess I may clean it out.  Sky slept with me most of the night and Tiger slept probably downstairs.

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…

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…
