Monday Musings

After a beautiful weekend of sunshine and cool temperatures we finally got the rain this morning.  It seemed very heavy this morning but not so much now.  At first I wasn’t sure how long but it looks like it will be raining for most of the day.

Yesterday was great.  I got to Liz’s just before we were to meet and she had a gift for me.  It was a ceramic rabbit that looked like the wild rabbits I find in my yard and that provided Mom with hours of entertainment before she died.  Unfortunately as I was taking it to the car it fell on the floor breaking its ears.  Now in every way Mom is watching over me (Mom very deaf when she died).

We were sort of late for the dinner but they were eating appetizers like cheese and crackers and shrimp and antipasto and other things such as that.  The main meal was a variety of pork and ham, pasta, sausage and rice and beans. Potatoes au gratin and salad and some really great desserts.

There were only two things that I didn’t enjoy and that was being told to stay in the moment and that I don’t have to talk. Both comments were made by who else?  Liz. I can’t share memories?  What am I a child?  I can be seen not heard?  I haven’t said anything.

We got home by 5 and by then my knee had been killing me   I spent the rest of the evening watching TV and eventually got ready for bed.

Today I was supposed to be doing taxes but I am not doing so well maybe I need to do it via the lap top because it sure isn’t working on the pc.

I sent a message to Telka to yesterday about the dinner arrangements I told her to plan for what ever day and I will play by ear.  I just don’ t know if Thursday or Friday will be all that good.

I am going to go to the Credit union and do some banking.  I want to put some in the savings account.

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…
