Monday Musings

Today we are celebrating MLK day.  A day in which we remember the man for his works in the CIvil Rights movement.  He had been taken away too soon.  We have come a long way from that time period.  Some would argue we haven't.  Just look at places like Chicago, LA, Virginia.  Some where some ones rights have been violated.  Yes we have come a long way but we still have miles to go.

The snow is still on the ground but I don't know if more had fallen yet.  I got a strange text from someone I didn't recognize saying that the roads were bad and she went back home and would be in late.  I sent the reply and they apologized for the mix up.  I had no problem with it just made my decision to not go out in it--yet.  The sun is shining and the plow just came down the street.

I made some phone calls today.  The first one to the Nursing home to schedule the Valentines Delivery activity for the club.  It was simple.  It will be on February 6 at 10:30 in the morning.  OF course she asked what we would be delivering and I told her just the hand made cards the clubs made.  I let Telka know the date.  So the next date will be for the other nursing home in Derby.

I called Liz so that we could get together.  She has some things to do up until mid afternoon so she will call me when she is available (or coming over).  I guess she is going to skype with her grandkids down in NC.  She loves to do that.  It makes up for not getting to see them as much as she like.

I have some letters to write so I can mail them and so that's what I am going to do.

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…
