Saturday Doings

Well with the most recent and somewhat unexpected storm behind us today should be fairly quiet weatherwise. Cold but sunny for most of the day and some clouds coming through tonight.  More sunshine it looks like for tomorrow but look out for the beginning of the week.

Today is Alexandra's birthday party in Fairfield. It is about 20 minutes from here depending on traffic.  I will meet up with my sister and her husband at their home and Liz will drive us.  She had a full on cold for the last few days so I am not so sure how she will be feeling today despite her reassurances she is feeling better.  This will be the first time I have been to my Nephew and his wife's home since they got married and eventually moved back to Connecticut from NY.  I am going to be wearing a nice outfit (at least I would like to think it is nice) my grey top and grey pants.  I am really getting a little nervous now.  I don't know how long we will be there it all depends on like I said Liz and Nelson.  I was able to get a couple of onesies for Alexandra and I hope it fits, they all like it, and it doesn't iook cheap.

Depending on when I get home I need to make the turkey loaf and cook a few things before they spoil.  I alway have told people when it comes to cooking I don't want to spend the entire weekend cooking.  It is too much time and energy.  God it sounds like I am whining.  Anyway this will be the first time I am using ground turkey for the meatloaf.  I think I have all the ingredients for now but I will have to add some of them to the next grocery list.

If I don't get to the cooking I know I have laundry to do and some letter writing and finish up the minutes from last month's 4th DIstrict meeting.  Chairman V sent me via US mail the agenda last week with otu the attendence list so I emailed him last night and he sent me one with an updated Phone tree from TM.

Of course I will also be watching my regular Saturday programming too.  I also think there is an NCIS marathon on as well.

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…
