Saturday Doings

It was a beautiful morning nothing at all what I was expecting. This turned out to be a good thing because today I met up with  siduri for our Museum adventure.I have been looking forward to this ever since we decided to meet.  As previously arranged we met in front of Pitaziki and then walked up Chapel to check out the various stores that were preparing to open for the day.  Our first stop was at this Bath and Body store (I can't remember the name of it but the sales person who was a lovely young lady gave us a history of the store.  It as one of those Natural stores. We had coffee at Starbucks and waited outside the gallery for awhile until it opened.  We had a great discussions.  I learned a lot about the city.  We also took a walk further down Chapel street and saw some really interesting stores.  I really enjoyed it because it felt like a different world then what I am used to.

The visit to the Art Gallery had many interesting and beautiful exhibits.  I admitted my Art History was very limited but I enjoyed the detail and the efforts to keep these pieces in tact.  i plan on visiting again very soon.  When we were done at the Gallery we had lunch at Zaroka Bar and Restaurant. 

The restaurant was York Street and turns out not that far from my office.  It was buffet style so I was able to try almost everything on the buffet table.  After lunch we headed to Broadway and looked at some wonderful shops there.  We even stopped at the Yale Book store and I was able to pick up the Wedding card and the sympathy cards I needed.  After that we headed back to my car and headed home.

By then there was a definite change in the weather.  It got much colder and the sun was gone.  Happily it didn't snow or rain so it made the ride home easy.  We will be doing this sort of thing again and again.  Thank you Siduri for this great idea and the great time.

When I got home I napped.  Later on in the afternoon I did get things ready for the Wedding and wrapped up the remaining coin.  i spent time watching the TV and I made myself a huge salad with steak in it.

As I said a great day all around.

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…
